Monal Tourist Home has been enthusiastically pursuing the sport of cycling & mountain biking for the past few years and now we are facilitating our guests to explore the area either on their own or in collaboration with our team. We have identified a few routes that are interesting and offer a wide variety of riding experience to the cycling and mountain biking enthusiasts. So hire a bicycle from Monal in Uttarkashi and pedal off to explore on your own.
Monal - Mahidanda - Monal
Mahidanda is located about 11km up the hill from Monal. The route is a well paved road, through thick Devdaar and Pine forests, and very little traffic. On clear days, you can have a beautiful sight of Mt. Banderpunch Massif from the top. The ascend is steep, so guests are suggested to take the bikes up on a car (contact Dippy), and cycle downhill.
Chaurangi Khal - Uttarkashi
Chaurangi khal is a picturesque pass located at about 2500 mtrs. The road distance is 27km from Uttarkashi. It is advisable to take the bicycle up to Chaurangi Khal on a bus or taxi, and cycle down.
