Bicycle excursions

 

NON polluting and healthy holiday

Cycling along the Terai forests in the Shivalik  foothills and exploring lesser known higher wilderness of Kumaon and Garhwal of  the hill state of Uttarakhand  have some really lovely stretches, where travelling by cycle is an easy and joyful experience incredibly efficient, eco-friendly modes of transport - no emissions and a tiny carbon footprint.

 

Your bicycle excursions becomes exciting as you encounter wildlife in the numerous less frequented routes in the mountains and forest here making your experience joyful.


How does bicycle exploration help

Anyone visiting our hill stations particularly in summer months cannot ignore convoys of cars and buses heading up from the heat of the plains resulting in pollution and congestion.  

 

In popular hill stations like Nainital, Mussorrie or Shimla Sometimes during peak season, you may not even be able to walk in peace in these higher plains. The very purpose, then, of escaping from the concrete jungle of the metropolis to a peaceful retreat is lost.


Your holiday supports local communities

Encourage your friends and family to take up a biking holiday. Convince them that when you bike through the forests and remotely located pictourous villages is best way to get a feel of the culture and the wildlife of the Himalayas. Stop at the villages and towns a gentle ‘Namaskar’ will get you a closer look at the town and village way of life.

 

Mountain biking in the Himalayas is one of the most adventure filled and novel ways of combining travel with experiencing wildlife, local flavour and culture of a place. We use local homestays thus sustaining local livelihood in a region that has the highest migration rate in the Himalayas. Add to this the rich birdlife and astounding mountain beauty and indescribably beautiful Himalayan locales that you'll be passing through, and you have the perfect adventure holiday that you will remember throughout your life.
