Brief Description

Here's introducing cycling to Tirthan Valley. We have carefully drafted an itinerary that lets you get the real feeling of the flora & fauna of the region with the convenience of time. As has been the forte of Bikat Adventures, we have tried to create a weekend option without compromising on the richness of a cycling experience. The highlight of this itinerary is the Tirthan river that guides you through the ride. The region is also famous for Trout fish and sometimes referred as Trout valley as well.
