Places Visited
Shimla, Kaza, Ladakh, Delhi
Beginning our tour in Shimla, a small hill station in Northern India made famous during the British Raj, we undertake one of the most challenging and scenic mountain bike trips in the world. Beginning in the foothills of the Himalaya, we bike through lush green countryside filled with fruit orchards following the roaring Sutlej River through a gorge on the Hindustan Tibet Highway before entering the arid Spiti valley with centuries old monasteries standing across and atop hillocks. The altitude gets higher and we get well trained for our final week of biking crossing several high passes ranging from 4100m to 5300m. This is as challenging as it can get as we get on the main Manali - Leh highway and bike through stunning landscape negotiating high passes, steep descents, switchback trails and ride across the Moore plains (plateau) to Leh, the capital of Ladakh. Here we will visit monasteries and villages and end with the classic one day bike trip to Khardungla (5370m) the highest motorable pass in the world to end this exhilarating 1200km bike trip across the crossroads of the Himalaya.
