HIMACHAL PRADESH, the region of eternal snow peaks, encompasses regions of great diversity, both on the cultural and the natural level. In the south, the Himalayan foothills have deep lush valleys, like those of Kullu or Kangra, surrounded by peaks that sometimes go over 6000m of altitude. Habited in majority by Hindus, these valleys are resplendent with temples and natural sanctuaries. In this region, you will also find Shimla, which was in the past the capital of British during summer, and Manali, a hill station adopted by the Hippies for the nonchalance of its inhabitants and its charas (hashish), and especially Dharamshala, where the Tibetan government in exile is installed and where His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama resides and also Manikaran, the holy pilgrimage for Hindus as well as for Sikhs.Though most of the ride covers asphalt roads but given the topography of Himachal Pradesh, we are likely to cross rocky and sandy terrain, so we expect our participants to have a penchant for adventure. We expect the riders to have an experience with biking.
