Namaste and welcome from Ashmita Trek & Tours! We are excited to invite you on one of best adventures in Sikkim! Mountain Biking is a rapidly growing activity in Sikkim and the trails are fabulous. This hilly northeast state has some of the best views in India. Throughout the trip, you can see some of the highest peaks in the world looming in the distance. Kanchenjunga (8586 meters/28,169 feet) continually shows its majestic self.
Our Sikkim Mountain Biking Holiday is the perfect combination of nature, culture, and adventure. During the trip, you will gain knowledge about the local culture and heritage of Sikkim. Take rests along the way at elaborate monasteries, lake shores, and verdant forests. This 10-day package is truly the journey of a lifetime. The memories made spending time with the locals in each passing town and village will be just as valuable to you as the time cruising from one village to the next.
The experience begins in Gangtok, the capital and largest city in Sikkim. We have a whole day and a half to discover the beauty and history of this wonderful city. Taste the energizing tea from the tea estates before visiting the elegant, peaceful monasteries, including Rumtek Monastery, the largest and most famous of the bunch. Life in Gangtok moves at a different pace than most cities in India, which you will find very relaxing.
After relaxing in Gangtok, it is time to hit the road. Our first day leads us to Temi Tea Garden. The bright green landscape, with mountain peaks in the background, is breathtaking. Continue pedaling carving up and down the hills. In Tashiding, there is an amazing hilltop gompa (monastery) that we stay near. Spend a night at Khecheopalri Lake, known to fulfill the wishes of those who visit. Next stop is Pemayangtse Monastery, nearby Pelling. The spiritual vibe here is powerful, and the mountain backdrop adds to the beauty. End the trip in Jorethang, a pleasant town on the border of Sikkim and West Bengal.
The Sikkim Mountain Biking Holiday is truly a special adventure! The mountain biking trails of Sikkim are hidden gems. Cruise through the countryside for days at a time breathing in the fresh air, learning about the local culture, and getting stellar mountain views.
