Travelling by every mode of transport has its own perks, but cycle through Himachal will ensure you have the luxury of getting up, close and personal with some of the most photographed and scenic regions in the world. Remember to slow down especially while you cycle on the old Hindustan – Tibet road, and soak in the beauty. Visit quaint old monasteries and camp at the remotest of places for a surreal experience. the ethereal Chandratal lake.
Temperature during the day on an average is between 20 – 25 degree C and at night it ranges between 10 – 15 degree C and can occasionally drop to below 5-degree C. However, the temperature varies a lot depending on the season and altitude.
First of All, if you’re planning this big, hire a Traveler or any mini Bus that could carry all your Cycling gear and luggage. Also, you need to have a permanent driver who would drive alongside you while you’ll be cycling. Its much needed because in case of emergencies, that would be a help plus you won’t have to carry all your tent gear and backups plus the luggage of course.
If you're a biker gang, then no need for a Traveler, you can just pack your luggage onto your bikes like you may have done on your earlier voyages!
So, its always suggested that you buy a package instead that would cost you between 45k to 55k per person for 12-15 days including the hotel, tent and food along the cycling route. They exclude all other meals when you are at rest so it eventually costs you around 70k per person for the whole trip and that the minimum I calculated by looking at all those packages.
So, if you’re a group of 5-8 people, you can plan all this thing out on your own and that would not even save a lot of money but you can complete the trip on your own terms.
