06 Night and 07 Days Cycling Tour
06 Nights/07 Days
- Cooch Behar
You will be met by our representative at the airport/railway station and begin drive to Siliguri Hotel.
The afternoon is free for you to get accustomed to your bike.
Siliguri – Cooch Bihar
Breakfast at hotel and start our first day of riding with a transfer out of the busy city of Siliguri.
We follow the busy main highway out in the countryside to a point where a smaller back road leads off towards Bangladesh. This is the real starting point of the tour! After setting up we head off south through a landscape of jute fields and rice paddies still farmed by ox-drawn carts. At one point in the ride you'll see a fence off to the right - this is the Bangladeshi border, the first neighbour of India that we will sight on the tour. We plan to ride 69km flat kilometres today.
Before reaching Cooch Bihar we will board our support vehicles to drive into the crazy traffic of this busy little city. Cooch Bihar was once the seat of colonial power in the region and the stunning palace here in a reminder of the city's former glory.
Cooch Bihar - Chalsa
After breakfast start bike ride. Today we enter tea territory which will be your constant companion through the journey. Chalsa is another small that sees few visitors but our hotel in the jungle is an ideal place to unwind the night.
Chalsa - Lava
Today is your chance to ride high up in the clean mountain area - quite a contrast from the humid
lowlands of the last few days. Starting at an elevation of 200m we will finish the day at 2000m - the
highest overnight stop of the tour. The plan for the day is to allow everyone to ride as far
as they like and then transfer up to Lava once they've had enough riding. This means that the
stronger riders can have a crack at completing the ride and those that want to relax can travel straight up to the hotel in Lava. Lava is a small mountain town, again with few visitors but with crisp clean mountain air.
Lava - Kalimpong
After the hard work of yesterday, today is a relatively easy day that tends downhill to Kalimpong. But this is the mountains and we start the day with a small climb out of town. There are plenty of stops along this route, so we will take our time to enjoy the views, temples, and villages.
Kalimpong - Darjeeling
Post breakfast we drive to Darjeeling and the road to Darjeeling from Kalimpong is a busy road.
Arrive in Darjeeling and afternoon is free to explore the town on your own
Darjeeling - Bagdogra
Check out from the hotel after breakfast and drive to Bagdogra airport or New Jalpaiguri Railway Station in time for the onward connection.
