Cycling & Biking

Rugged and dusty curves have an unrelentingly lure, as do the green swaying fields, waves lashing on the shoreline and small hamlets along the countryside. This, and much more gives you company on the many cycling and biking trails of India and the neighbouring nations. Steel grey highways and off the beaten path tracks are sure to take a rider on a hypnotic journey.

Sometimes it’s not about seeing the destination, but feeling it. Cycling and biking trips allow travellers to take in the place, slowly, smoothly and at a pace that they can choose. Stopping by small roadside shanties by the road, or not missing a single photo opportunity by being slow are some of the perks of this kind of a trip. And while you take in the surroundings, you can be assured that a backup van is there for any help and able instructors to guide you through the journey.

Be it mountain trails or one through the cultural hotspots of the nation, the cycling and biking tours give a glimpse of India, which no other mode of transportation can. The lure lies in the paced out, indulgent time on the road, where you can stop and take in the beauty of the outdoors or interact with locals as you please.

Cycling in Medikeri

14 Nights & 15 Days

Overview

Coorg, an exquisite hill station of South India, is ideal to discover the coffee-draped hills that it is famous for. Coorg occupies a prominent position in the humid tropical belt of Western Ghats.

The mildly undulating dips and peaks flanked by the lush plantations and a million shades of green that they have within them, is nothing short of cathartic.
