Hey Kaushik,

Welcome to Dilli. For around 250 kms; I would suggest heading over to Lansdowne. Some sections of this highway are breathtakingly beautiful and others are painfully crappy. Thankfully, the former overshadows the latter. The hill section is around 35 kms. Its the base of the awesome Garhwal rifles so the roads are good, although a bit narrow. I had the misfortune of going there when the roads were being repaired though

Can you do a return trip the same day? Sure, but do bear in mind that a large part of the highways are single roads / without a divider. Can be a problem if you are riding post sundown and you have 4 wheelers coming at you with their high beams on

My recommendation - Make it a 2 day thing and head over to Kasar Devi. This is around 14 kms before Binsar, 20 kms uphill from Almora. Amazing highway all throughout barring a 5 km stretch; which can be fun if you fancy off roading and catching some air on your motorcycle. Beautiful vistas and unbelievable roads. And since most tourist traffic terminates at Nainital, you get those beautiful roads almost all to yourself to have a ton of fun on. The hilly part of the journey is around 75-80 kms

Dharamshala is another destination that people recommend for the beautiful roads, but its slightly further and the hilly section would easily be around 200 kms

Hope this helps. Welcome once again and hope to catch up with you soon
