Me and my sons 19 and 17 years, were desperate to do a cycling tour in India after our Nepal tour with Explore Himalaya.I was nervous doing this kind of trip in India. However, our guide Akshay had planned out the safest tour and he was very safety conscious. It was an enjoyable 8-day trip and though there were some nerve-wracking road rides, most of the trip was awesome with few to no traffic. Would definitely recommend Explore Himalaya to other travelers.

It was more beautiful than I had imagined it. Valley of flowers is simply a delight to the senses. I came to know about this trek through my friend circle. We got in touch with explorehimalaya.org and they arranged the whole trek for us in a jiffy. Uttrakhand is a home to most beautiful mountain peaks and I'm glad I have discovered the cream of it all. Kudos to the team and the support staff.
