Foothills of the Himalayas
Experience India's broad diversity of landscapes, people and wildlife on this incredible journey.
India offers a broad diversity of landscapes, people and wildlife, with an incredible mix of colourful cultures and fascinating history at every turn. From the most spectacular, serene landscapes to vibrant, bustling villages and towns � India offers an unforgettable experience! This exciting and adventurous challenge takes us to the famed Golden Temple of Amritsar, in Northern India, before heading into the beautiful mountainous state of Himachal Pradesh. Our route follows the contours of the western Himalayas, passing through dense forest, scenic tea plantations, farming terraces, remote villages and historic colonial hill stations, with a spectacular backdrop of snow-capped mountains. There are some demanding climbs and thrilling descents as we ride through this mountainous country. Our route also takes in Mcleod Ganj, the mountain-top home of the exiled Dalai Lama, and ends in Shimla, the former summer capital of British India. We celebrate our achievements with a ride on Shimla�s scenic narrow-gauge railway that winds its way through the mountains.
