Vehicle Safari in Himachal

01 Himachal Vehicle Safari Activities

By jeep, car or on motorcycle, you can explore the variety Himachal has to offer. By jeep, the Trans Himalayan tracts can steadily unfold their natural and man-made wonders. Along one of the world's highest highways, you can drive out of Manali, cross the Rohtang pass (3980 m), and move through arid Lahaul to Leh and Ladakh. From Shimla, through picturesque Kinnaur, you drive through the haunting landscapes of Spiti - and over the Kunzam Pass (4551 m), enter Lahaul. Himachal has an extensive network of roads and tracks - and apart from the routes mentioned above, there are several others you can traverse on. By car, driving over the more demanding routes may not be possible, but in no way does this curtail the range of experience. And motorcycles may impose some limitations, but are again a wonderful way of sharing the wonders of Himachal.

The trans Himalayan Tracts are something that will really attract the explorer in you to unwind the natural and man made wonders situated within the picturesque landscapes. Take up any of the customised jeep safari tours offered by the tourism board of India to the high altitude destinations of Leh, Ladakh and Kinnaur - Spiti, where the wilderness is still intact from commercialisation.

Ranging from short jeep side tours to long ranging holidays in the wild regions, the experience of driving through the mountainous valleys along winding passes and incredible heights is a journey every adventure seeker would love to have.

02 Mountain Cycling in Himachal

Gear yourself for high adventure with an expedition on cycles. You can pedal your way past high passes or simply, make a day-adventure. Quite literally, the whole of Himachal is your playground. The tour can be coupled with camping and can be carried on for several weeks over diverse terrain. The lower region of the State - Kangra, Una, Hamirpur and Bilaspur - offer gentle routes. Or you can stretch mind, muscle and stamina to reach out to the Trans Himalayan tracts of Lahaul, Spiti and Kinnaur. Milder - but no less interesting - excursions can be done out of any holiday station. For the higher regions, the summer and autumn months are suggested.
