Mountain Biking

The best destination of mountain biking exploration in Indian higher regions is Ladakh with numerous unspoiled areas, which are a little off-track because their high altitude location makes them inaccessible for the usual holidaymakers.

In a land, which is home to some of the highest roads in the world (top 3 are right here, Khardung-La, Tanglang-La, and Chang-La, apart from several others) along with some of the best dirt tracks on what someone can say, literally the top of the world, mountain biking is something, which every biker worth his or her salt would strive to attempt.

We, have a long standing experience in organizing mountain biking trips, which apart from taking you to the roof of the world also gives you a ring side view of the magnificent flora & fauna and the physical features. Some of the most famous mountain biking trails, which we have explored, are mentioned below. Please note that this is not at all an exhaustive list.
