The Mighty Dhauladhars towering high over rice paddy fields, small villages with cobbled paths sprung up around ancient temples, tea gardens, a reservoir almost like an inland sea, a trail that passes through forests of Chir pine, meandering roads and jeep tracks, curious onlookers, Buddhist enclaves and monks, prayer flags dotting the skyline - Welcome to the Tour of Kangra. A trail like no other!
This is our course for the 4 days of magical cycling through some of the best of Himalayan Landscapes. A 260 kms circuit which winds its way through the meandering roads of the Kangra valley. Well, a mountain bike is ideal and Hybrids won’t fall far back behind. The surface is 70% tarmac with the rest being off road and jeep tracks. The course of the ride is a mix of uphills and downhills with a few flat sections. The downhills are exciting and the grueling uphills would surely challenge your endurance. The average riding altitude is 1300mts (4940 ft).
