India displays diversity unparalleled to any other country in the world. It is blessed with the highest mountains, the mightiest rivers, vast flatlands, dense forests, sun soaked beaches, a great desert and hundreds of tropical islands.
Combined with a culture and people more diverse than its geography, and fuelled by 3500 years of uninterrupted history, the country makes for a romantic affair for any traveller that wants to go on an India luxury cycling holiday. The romance is best experienced on the quaint country roads, where you witness the simplicities and eccentricities of Indian rural life. It really is the perfect way to explore the countryside in a relaxed fashion, getting under the skin of the country. Cycle with your guide, visiting remote, country villages – each tour is designed just for you!
India luxury cycling makes for the perfect pace to soak in the sights and sounds of this mysterious land. The unique luxury of staying in charming fort-palace hotels or plantation retreats, located at cycling distances, makes for the perfect cycling holiday to experience the enigma that is India. Pedal into Rajasthan to relive the old world charm while you ride atop your two-wheeled steed from one erstwhile fort/palace turned heritage hotel to another.
Experience magnificent views of the Himalayan peaks and the amazing setting of the small villages dotted on the hillsides and charming local cultures in Uttarakhand. Or, ride through tropical forests, coconut and coffee plantations, serene backwaters and lush green hills in southern India. Ladakh offers a truly awe-inspiring ride as you pedal through the cold, high-altitude desert. This is a land of extremes with its brown mountains and blue waters, burning sun and freezing winds, glaciers, and sand dunes – it really is hard to distinguish between reality and fantasy in this mystical land. Also known as ‘Little Tibet’, Ladakh has beautiful monasteries, full of priceless art and antiques, scattered across its arid landscape.
Make time also to experience the forests and tribal villages of central India – ride across the pristine forests before heading deeper into Gondwana land and the tribal countryside of Chhattisgarh, which is inhabited mainly by Baiga hamlets. Absolutely no tourism exists here which undoubtedly makes it a magnificent ride. The final stretch takes you down the Chilpi ghat descending through the Maikal hills, entering the Bhoromdeo Wildlife Sanctuary where you can walk across to explore the 11th century temple complex.
