Bike is the best method to plan a trip to Kasol, Malana and Tosh or in one word you can say Parvati valley. But due to the lack of bike rental services in Bhuntar this plan seemed little difficult for few people.
So if you ever plan a bike trip to Bhuntar, Kasol or Malana then you can call on 8988265439, this above number is of Thakur bhai who runs a bike tours and expedition company in Bhuntar, this guy helped me a lot when I first planned a trip for my friends to Leh Ladakh.
Best Bike Rentals in Bhuntar
I have been blogging about Parvati valley, Leh for nearly 5 years now and who so ever ask me for good advice for the trip I just give them Thakur bhai number, This guy is so genuine that he don’t even care for his bike rentals instead he gives advice that is best suited for the customer and that’s the best part I love about this guy otherwise whats my need to write about him.
Note: Never ever Rent bikes from the local Mechanics. I have small incident to share one of friend told me that he tried to look for some cheap rental services in Bhuntar, he even got one but when he returned the bike he was blamed for scratches and damage which were present from first only. He was later told to pay more money. This was how he was cheated. So remember whenever you rent a bike always rent from trusted source.
Cheapest Bikes for Rent in Bhuntar
Personally if you ask me I have always preferred Bullet 350cc classic for the off roading to Tosh or Kasol from Bhuntar. Thakur’s center is the cheapest rental and best rental stor in Bhuntar. I have seen people renting bikes from him instead of Manali for Leh Ladakh. So guys here is a list of bikes few bikes which you can rent from his office.
Bullet 350cc Classic
I personally own this motorcycle and love it. The best part about this bike is the mileage, which is generally more than 25-30km. You may think then scooty is better choice then but guys if you are planning to Tosh or Kasol, scooty won’t give you much power as this bike can give you. So personally its the best bike you can rent from Bhuntar.
Price : 1200-1300Rs
Royal Enfield Himalayan
If you love off roading and want to ride power with thrill then this is surely a motorbike is for you. For me this bike is on second position for because this is not good in mileage as compare to bullet 350cc but probably one of the finest bikes to ride to Tosh or Kasol from Bhuntar.
Royal enfield 500cc Bullet
Bullet 500 is also one of the finest motorcycles to plan a trip to Kasol, Tosh or Malana but the major disadvantage which I think of this motorcycle over 350cc and Himalayan is the poor mileage this motorcycle delivers. Hence I rank this motorcycle on number 3 for Bhuntar bike rentals.
KTM duke 200
The 4rth motorcycle on my list which you should consider for your trip to Kasol or Manali from Bhuntar is KTM duke. This is probably the fastest and powerful machines to travel around. Rent this bike only if you have used it before otherwise go for other rental options as the roads are not good enough to take risk with rented motorcycles.
On Number 5 is the Bajaj street Avenger, Its not like that its not good but its just not that powerful to give you feel of the mountains. But if you are a budget traveler and have planed an entire trip on budget then probably this motorcycle is for you as it is the cheapest bike to rent from Bhuntar.
On more important thing about this motorcycle is its average which is much better than all other above mentioned motorcycles.
Scooty is probably of the cheapest things to rent from Bhuntar. If you are on a tight budget and confused with renting options then scooty is probably the best choice to rent in Bhuntar. But the only disadvantage about scooty is the power which is not enough to feel the vibes of Parvati valley on your journey to Tosh or Malana from Bhuntar.
Price of scooty varies according to the season it can be low to 400 rs to maximum 700 Rs.
So guys this was the list of few bikes which you can get at thakur’s office. Still if you don’t need bike and have some other concern regarding the trip then you can surely call him anytime, he is available 24 hours for anyone who seeks help
Important Things to know for hiring a Bike/Motorcycle in Bhuntar
- The first and the last thing you should do before renting a bike is to check it properly. I have seen local travel agency cheating people for money by not returning securities by blaming them for damage.
- You should always have a valid driving license before renting a bike. If you are beginner in riding a bike then you should prefer bus as a good traveling option to parvati valley or Kasol
- Some dealers will provide you too old bikes which will cost your pockets very less but that is never a good idea. Try to get a new bike at a decent price after bargaining. Bargaining is tool which I always use while traveling in Himachal.
- Make sure that the RC(registration certificate), Insurance and PUC (Pollution Under Control) documents related to rented/hired bike are provided and they are up to date and valid enough. After all you do not want to land in some dismal situation on your life time trip.
- Always ask your bike renter to attach carrier to your bike so that it becomes easy for you guys to carry your luggage in most comfortable manner.
