Ride through uncharted interiors, hike through deep forests, soak in the sun and experience nature all around. Pedal your way through gut wrenching uphills, dangerous downhills, village back roads, beautiful meadows, thick vegetation, jeep tracks and savor real mountain biking as you live through 9 days of adventure racing covering 500 km/380 miles, 3250 mt above sea level and take on the Himalayan Challenge.

This is the only hardcore MTB endurance event of the Himalayas. It is by far the toughest, most action packed and extreme adventure event of India. 9 days of breathtaking speeds, treacherous downhill’s and punishing uphills will once again pump adrenaline this year.

The trail moves through the magnificent mountains of the Himachal. The exquisite vistas, gushing rivers and streams, rolling meadows, verdant forests and golden peaks lend the MTB Himalaya the unique status of being one of the worlds most beautiful rides.

The adventure promises many surprises – the rustic survival course with brutal technical sections pushes each rider to the edge of his/her limit. It is a true test of courage, stamina, endurance, strength and determination for the riders. The sense of sheer triumph and contentment after one has conquered the trail is just amazing. And then there are the finish line battles at all levels of riding ability

The adventure commences in Shimla as the race is flagged off on 29th September and (the registrations / briefings are done the day before). The next 8 days put you through obstacles and test your perseverance. Gear up for an inconceivable journey through the grandiose of the Himalayas.
