Mountain Biking

Sikkim’s mountainous terrains offer a fascination adventure for bicycling enthusiasts. The highways winding up and down mountains with drops of thousands of feet keep one too high on adrenalin to feel the slightest pinch of monotony.

As one progresses along the route, there is a discernible change in the flora and temperature. All along the route, the interruption by picturesque and almost enchanting villages and towns rich in cultural spots make a welcome diversion.

This mountain biking and trek itinerary offers an exclusive experience of Sikkim, Darjeeling, the Land, its people and the flora & fauna. Biking is on remote roads avoiding high traffic routes and meandering through the lush countryside and forests, which will make this a memorable tour.

This itinerary has been designed to give you the maximum exposure to the land and people of Sikkim and a glimpse of Darjeeling. We bike covering almost all the West, North and East district of Sikkim with the amazing glimpses of the Khangchendzonga ranges, the impressive monasteries and the cultural and traditional life of the people of this enchanting place.

The best time to experience Sikkim by mountain bike would be March-May and October- December.
