Mountain Biking in Spiti Valley
The 800 km expedition from Manali to Shimla is one of the ultimate challenges even for the experienced mountain bikers.
Lahaul and Spiti
is the largest district in Himachal Pradesh with high mountains and
narrow valleys bordered by Ladakh to the north, Tibet to the east,
Kinnaur to the southeast and Kullu valley to the south.
This pioneering tour takes you through the most beautiful places of
northern India - the former Kingdom of Spiti. Most people in Spiti are
Buddhists. Colorful gompas dominate the villages and village life.
Its Guru Padmasambhava who arrived here in the beginning of 8th century
and introduced and established Mahayana Tantric Buddhism at Gungri
monastery by suppressing the evil forces that opposed Buddhism by his
Tantric prowess and gained a position even higher than Buddha in
Lamaism. Every village has its own monastery and lamas dominate the
social and cultural life of the community. Our tour combines with
visits to some of these monasteries along the route.
The best season for biking is late June – July through to mid – August.
