Superb expereince, this mountain cycling was just awesome. The overall arrangement of this tour was simply up to the mark.

Overview

Start/End Point: Bhagsu Nag Taxi Stand, Mcleodganj 

Start Time: Day 1- 11 AM

Delight in Cycling in Kangra Valley, a path that makes you zip through Chir pine forests, winding streets, jeep tracks, and charming Buddhist areas that are steeped in serenity. Accompanying you is the awe-inspiring Dhauladhars that appear to rise above rice paddy villages, quaint hamlets, old-world charming places of worship, cobbled paths and tea gardens.

The cycling in Kangra Valley extravaganza also makes you push your boundaries as you take on altitudes of 1300m or 4940ft. A 260 km circuit entailing uphill and downhill trails and some flat stretches adds to the glee of the experience.  Not to mention the grand beauty of Kangra Valley that treats you with splendid sights of Mother Nature. You have lush carpeted slopes that are laced with frosty summits, terraced slopes of corn or tea, gurgling streams, orchards, and vibrant blossoms. The valley is located in the winsome state of Himachal Pradesh, one of nature prides of India. The package includes high-nutrition/energy vegetarian dishes of the Indian, Chinese, and Western variety that are freshly cooked by the kitchen team traveling with the group. The temperature would be around 0 to 20 degrees (Mid October to March),25 to 38 degrees (April to June) & the maximum altitude would be 2100m where you will be peddling.

Bhagsu Nag Taxi stand can be easily approachable by road via public or private vehicles.
