  • The maximum capacity of baggage that you should be carrying is 60 liters. Remember that you have to carry the luggage to the backup vehicle and to the accommodation
  • In case of change of permit fees, the difference will be payable by the traveler at the beginning of the trip
  • Be sure to have two nutrition halts during the cycling course every day.
  • Please note that Riders must bring their own mountain (all terrain) cycles. The roads generally are not suitable for bikes fitted with road tyres (slicks), even though some sections are in reasonably good condition. There will be sections higher up that will be in poor condition due to snow/slush from the winter months, possible landslip, and use of the road by heavy vehicles at times. Hybrid bikes with 'chunky' mountain tyres are most suitable. Riders should also bring a range of spare parts which may include; chain links or chains, spare tyres and pump, at least 4 spare tubes and puncture repair kit, cables, pedals and a good tool kit.
  • Though there would be a mechanic accompanying you carrying a good repair kit and spares but it is still necessary for everyone to bring some spares; this also ensures you have parts that will fit your bike. There will be a staff member to assist with running repairs when we are biking and at overnight stops should problems be more complicated. As a general rule, less complex or high-tech bikes are easier to fix and obtain parts for if necessary. If you plan to buy a new bike before the trip, make sure you are completely familiar with it prior to departing.
  • You should fit at least 2 one-liter water bottles to your bike. Water will be available from the back up vehicle.
  • For riders unfamiliar with the Himalayan organization you will be very well catered for. The cycling expedition takes you into remote regions where there are no villages and no hotels. Therefore, during the cycling expedition, you will be camping.
  • Early morning starts and descents at altitude require good quality weather gear.
  • Proper waste disposal and strictly follow the ‘Leave No Trace’ guideline.
  • Respect local cultures and be sensitive towards nature and wildlife.
  • Use local resources and support including provisions and porters to generate local employment.
  • Those suffering from an ailment or heart disease, Diabetes, breathing problems, high altitude sickness or is pregnant cannot participate.
  • Good quality warm apparels are a must.
  • If you wish to travel by road from Delhi to Manali and return, there are regular Volvos from Delhi to Manali. There are frequent Public Transport buses including Volvos available from Delhi to Manali that cost about INR 1300 per person.
