  • 15 km of ride
  • Detailed introduction of each building
  • Trained biking expert/historian


Embraced with some of the finest architectural styles, resting on the hill slopes, Shimla, truly is ‘Queen of Hills’. Discovered in early 1800’s by East Indian company, the town became the summer capital of British India in 1864 and India was ruled from this lovely hill station till the independence of country in 1947.

Still peeping through its colonial buildings with wide panorama of snow-clad Himalaya, a ride through the town unfolds the glory of the bygone era.

I am a native of Shimla and I was educated in the town. My frequent visits to my village brought me closer to the nature, rich culture and the sense of appreciation I have held since my childhood. After completing my academics, I started an an Adventure Consultancy in Shimla, worked for Oberoi Group as an Naturalist/Historian and presently working at a travel and tour agency as Product Manager. This all allows me to guide travellers from all around the globe in North Indian Himalayas.
