“A really good way to experience a relatively unpopulated rural region of India but also pulling in the iconic Amritsar and Shimla.”
Beautiful scenery
5 - Excellent
“I can really recommend this trip if you like mixing cultural experience with nature, beautiful scenery and cycling - of course. Its marked as challenging, but it was in general much easier to do than I had expected, only Jalori Pass was a bit though, but can be done at a slow pace. And there is no rush, you can do it in your own speed, slow or fast as you like, there is plenty of time to reach your destination.”
MOUNTAINS, TEMPLES AND HILL STATIONS RIDE
4 - Very Good
“This is challenging holiday. Some of the cycling is fantastic and the scenery is great .It is very much off the beaten track and some of the accomodation is very basic. There is very little rest time for the first few days. There are a couple of hills which are long and steep but are worth it as the downhills are great.”
CYCLING THROUGH NORTH INDIA
3 - Average
“Cycling was fantastic and back up team very enthusiastic and helpful. Challenging cycling by title, challenging by nature.”
