mountain biking

One who has ever tried mountain biking will be thrilled by it's sheer excitement. The moment you sit down on the saddle and started pedaling, it will be an obsession for you to perfect the art of mountain biking. The Great Indian Himalayas enclose some of the best cycling escapades that a cyclist looks for in its adventure trip. Himalayan Biking in India works as a pretty good adventure experience for those who love to explore the unbeaten tracks and not so frequently visited paths.

The fully supported Leh-Manali bike ride is now an established classic, crossing three high passes, the highest being over 5600 mtrs, and with a total descent of over 10000 mtre.

These are not demanding expeditions- our support team is always present at a discreet distance behind the riders to help in case of need. All bags are carried for you and our expert camp crew sports out the campsites and puts together five star meals at the end of the day.

Safety Requirements
You need to be fit as Indian trails tend to be narrower, steeper, with sharper turns, and with unavoidable obstacles such as rocks, roots, and water bars. Sometimes they are built along the sides of steep slopes with varying amounts of exposure. Generally, go slower on narrow single tracks than you ordinarily would -- until you get used to steering down such a confining course. Obstacles pose a special problem... To get over a root or water bar or rock, approach it from a right angle, compress the front of the bike just before hitting it, and pull up with your arms as you reach it.

Know your equipment, your ability, and the area in which you are riding and prepare accordingly. Be self-sufficient at all times. Wear a helmet, keep your machine in good condition, and carry necessary supplies for changes in weather or other conditions.

Mountain Biking In India
The best season to try out the Indian mountain biking experience in India is from October till December. For the experienced cyclists the higher region cycling tracks include Trans Himalayan tracks of Lahual, Spiti and Kinnaur in Himachal Pradesh; Garhwal and Kumaon in Uttaranchal; Sikkim, Ladakh and Kashmir and Northeastern region.

The best destination of mountain biking exploration among the Indian higher regions is Ladakh with numerous unspoiled areas, which are a little off-track because their high altitude location makes them inaccessible for the usual holidaymakers.

Himachal Pradesh & Uttaranchal
There are plenty of easy introductory mountain biking trails also available in the parts of Jammu, Kangra, Una, Hamirpur and Bilaspur in Himachal, and Almora, Nanital, Ranikhet, Rishikesh, and Mussoorie in Uttaranchal.

Another destination biker would love to explore is the state of Sikkim, which allows the visitor to get in touch with the colourful cultural heritage and monastic lifestyle of the Sikkimese people.
