Old Delhi & Mystic Relation With River Yamuna!

Behind every historical capital, there is a great big river. The route is an ode to this river that has been a silent witness to Delhi’s history and is now a recurrent victim of its excesses. Starting from the little lanes of Shahjahanabad, while the city is still sleepy in its proverbial stocks passing along the magnificently formidable walls of the Red Fort we find ourselves on the meditative quiet banks of the Yamuna at Nigambodh Ghat. A visit to the famous ghats – migratory birds circling above the calm waters – unravels the ritualistic devotion with which the Hindus treat the historic river.

Despite its current struggles with pollution, the Yamuna is a goddess to the eyes of her devotees. Concluding with a memorable view of the Jama Masjid back through the streets of Old Delhi, the Yamuna Route is a true experience in the stimulating contradictions that is India.

Route Map

The Raj tour is the most beautiful and green ride that we offer.

Starting in Old Delhi to give you an even better feeling of the historical differences of Delhi the tour takes you into New Delhi. Well known for its great monuments like India Gate and Rashtrapati Bhavan (Presidential Palace).

After designing the Shah Jahan tour and Yamuna tour, both Old Delhi experiences, it was time to cycle into the capital established by the British. Neighboring the great Mughal capital Shahjahanabad (= Old Delhi) New Delhi was built for the eternal glory of the Indian British Empire. But like so many empires it didn’t last that long.

From the moment I left Old Delhi and cycled into the imperial avenues and passed the colonial architecture, I was deeply impressed. Feeling small and big at the same time. The most important criteria if a cycle route works out or not are the ‘WOW’ moments. The Raj tour has these moments for sure. I’m not going to tell you them in advance. I want you to experience these highlights yourself. When you see or feel them, just scream “WOW” loudly! Officially allowed by Jack 🙂
