East Nepal – Tea Gardens and Mountain Trails
This trail takes us from the heart of the tea estates up to the gateway of Kanchenjunga, down to the raging Tamur River and then up to the charming townships of Gupha Bazaar and Chainpur. The ride is a mix of trails and jeep track with single track options for good riders. Full vehicle support means we can enjoy the down hills and not suffer through the ups. Highlights of the area are the super friendly local people totally unaccustomed to tourists, stunning views of the Eastern Himalaya and experiencing local traditions and delicacies like Tea, Thungba (Hot Fermented Millet), Sukuti (Spicy Dried Meat) and Nepal’s National Flower the Rhododendron.
This is an epic ride that can be tailored to suit your needs. We can make a super challenging touring style ride with big climbs and big descent, or endruo style with full vehicle support for lovers of super technical single track. We can also shorten it to just a tea gardens ride.
