    I was lucky enough to go on a mountain biking ride with Urgen Sherpa from Ashmita Trek and Tours and it was an amazing experience! I would recommend Ashmita to anyone who wants to explore the nature around Darjeeling. If and when I’m in Darjeeling, I’m definitely taking that biking trip again!

    We used Ashmita Trek & Tours during our recent visit to Darjeeling. Everything was arranged very well and professionally. From the taxi service from Bagdogra airport to the bike tour and the day trek to Tonglu, our whole experience was great. Special call out to Mr Tenzing our guide and Mr Bhudda our driver who were both very experienced, happy to share their knowledge of the local area, and more importantly trustworthy. Very happy to recommend Ashmita Trek and Tours to anyone travelling to this part of the world.

    The trip I did was 37 km, starting point Darjeeling town. the ride through National park it's was great peace village along the way. with mountain view. Sangay took good care of me and made sure we had some stops to have a nice chai.

    We booked the Darjeeling to Chatakpur mountain Biking day tours My guide, was fantastic. The scenery outside the city was impressive. The ride was not too hard, except for a few parts on the dirt under the unforgiving sun. I highly recommend this company.

    We'd read about an off-road biking trail from Darjeeling in a UK newspaper and booked a guide and bikes hire with Ashmita Trek.
    Subash was an excellent, friendly and enthusiastic guide. Our ride took us through a National Park to Chatakpur where we had a lovely lunch of omelettes, noodle soup and tea. When the fog descended later in the day Subash organised a four-wheel drive to rescue us to avoid having to cycle on the road up to Ghoom.
    Despite the wet weather, we had a great day out. The ride was nearly 50km in total.
    Our only slightly negative comment is that the bikes could do with a bit of maintenance.
