Take rests along the way at elaborate monasteries, lake shores, and verdant forests. This 10-day package is truly the journey of a lifetime. The memories made spending time with the locals in each passing town and village will be just as valuable to you as the time cruising from one village to the next.

DAY 1 : Arrival to Bagdogra Airport and transfer to Gangtok (1,650 meters), 4 hours/120km.

Our assistant will welcome you at Bagdogra Airport near Siliguri and bring you to Gangtok. Pass Assam tea plantations and tiny villages along the way. Cruise through hilly switchbacks above the clouds through the bright green landscape. Situated on top of a ridge, Darjeeling faces the Himalaya and is a popular destination for Westerners and Indians alike. Overnight at a hotel in Darjeeling.

DAY 2 : Explore Gangtok.

Eat breakfast at the hotel and begin sightseeing! Pay homage to the Rumtek Monastery, world renowned amongst Tibetan Buddhists. Originally called the Dharma Chakra Centre, it includes a beautiful shrine temple and a learning center for the monks. Rumtek Monastery, a pilgrimage site, was built by the 16th Karmapa. Then, visit Enchey Monastery, belonging to the Nyingma order of Vajrayana Buddhism. In the evening, explore the rest of Gangtok. Overnight in hotel in Gangtok.

DAY 3 : Ride from Temi Tea Garden to Ravangla (2,133m).

Have a filling breakfast at the hotel and begin today’s journey. Take one last look at the luscious tea garden and hit the road. The laidback ride leads through Damthang. Before we reach Ravangla, we stop at Ralang Monastery, nestled in the beautiful landscape. The monastery was constructed after the pilgrimage of the 4th Chogyal. When he returned, the Karmapa performed the blessing. It is a most sacred monastery with a rich history. Overnight in guest house.

DAY 4 : Ride from Ravangla to Tashiding (1,246m).

Have a tasty breakfast and look forward to another exciting day of biking through the hills of Sikkim.

DAY 5 : Ride from Tashiding to Yuksom (1,780m).

After breakfast, have another visit to Tashiding Monastery if you’d like. It is one of the most cherished monasteries in Sikkim, constructed in 1716 (over 300 years ago!). A yearly festival called Bumchu is celebrated here. If you would like to visit during festival time, let us know and we can arrange that. Over the course of the day, enjoy stunning views, still admiring the snow-capped peaks. Overnight in guest house.
