Sachin S. Shetty is a Mangalore-born cinematographer, the owner of Shutterbox films, who is also a fantastic rider. He set and broke his own records while riding a bike for extended periods of time alone. Sachin rides a Royal Enfield Himalayan, among other bikes, until he is content and delighted.

Several months ago, Sachin and his buddies accomplished a remarkable feat. They all went on a journey via the Indo-China border's Himalayas. Sachin and his friend rode their motorcycle up a mountain at the height of 15,3000 feet to unflur the Tulunadu flag. The riders set out from New Delhi, stopping along the way to see sights like Chitkul Village and Hikkim. A few years back, Sachin rode his bike from Kanyakumari to Ladakh, covering the 11000 km journey in 37 days.

Social media, particularly Sachin's Instagram page, provides a clear insight into his interests and travels. He desires to ride his favourite bike around the country and climb as many hilly regions as possible. Shetty wants to travel to every region, document it, and encourage others to follow their dreams like him.

High-altitude motorbike riding is thrilling but sometimes terrifying. It's crucial to take care of your health. When asked how he stays safe and healthy when travelling such lengthy distances, Sachin responded, "You have to be physically fit and strong to continue forward at such high elevations. I've been practising yoga and taking oxygen tablets as breathing assistance. Complete protective equipment is necessary. I also got to experience how brutal nature can be."

Sachin S Shetty says that he plans to travel more on his motorcycle in the next few weeks. His production house, Shutterbox Films, also has some exciting projects. Shetty and his friends are looking forward to monsoon adventures in mountains and green places.
