Adventure India : Mountain Biking - 7

Guys, here is another fabulous adventure sport of India known as Mountain Biking.

There are splendid mountain biking opportunities in Himachal. The state offers great offbeat routes for cycling. Culturally and ethnically, the routes take visitors through great variations. In Manali, the dominant people are Parabatyas. The Jot people and Lamba Buddhists are culturally close to Tibetans. On the high plains one encounters Champas, who are semi-nomads.

Bike over the highest road pass in the world. Here, there is a diversity of landscapes, including the wild barren 'moonscape' of Ladakh, the lush pine forests of the Kullu Valley, rushing glacial rivers, fragrant tea gardens and picturesque villages.

Good camps are found all along the routes. they are self-sufficient and offer indoor and outdoor games options such as basketball and badminton. Mountain biking is being promoted in most parts of North and West Sikkim.

Best Time : July to September
