Cycle the Royal Road

From: ₹1,870.00 for 4 hours

In the year 1075, the Kadamba king Jasyakeshi II built a magnificent 60-ft-wide royal road or Rajbeedi, starting from the then port of Gopakapattana, over the hills up to Old Goa. It then believed to have continued after a ford on the Mandovi river across the Western Ghats to the Deccan Plateau.  Today, only a 2-km stretch of this over 1,000-year-old road survives. It’s a worthy pedal.

Everyday, 4 hours, 07:30 to 11:30 hrs

We start at Goa Velha, the village that was once the magnificent capital city, Gopakapattana, of the Kadamba kingdom. We pedal through the village, starting at the site of the ancient port and following the route of what used to be the Raj Beedi.

We then have to take a diversion through the picturesque village of Batim, as a part of the original road has been lost in hill cutting. We climb back onto the road and follow it to Old Goa, and then along the Mandovi river to Panaji.
