Idea is to take 100 Girls to the highest motorable road in the world i.e. Khardung La (18,380 ft.). A very first time in the history of Adventurous Sports such a large group of Girls will do the cycling to Khardung La. Girls come on and be a part of this historical event.

Last date of Registration Extended to 30 June. Girls come on register your seat now @  http://www.yhaindia.org/program_bookings/booking/133

The stretch from Kullu-Manali to Ladakh is amazing. The ever changing landscapes and the altitudes of the Himalayas make it an out of the world vacation experience.

Your vacation in India could not get happier or hillier than on the Himalayas. The beauty of the nature can be enjoyed the best while riding on cycle. The pace of the ride, the pollution less environs, the lightly trafficked roads and the ample space promise a great adventure holiday.
The cycling keeps you in contact with the local people in the villages and market place. Even if the idea of pumping pedals throughout the adventure does not sound thrilling it is one of the best ways to explore the Himalayas. The normal cycles are not apt for the expedition. The cycling upwards will not be as relaxing but the downward journey will surely be more of fun and less of effort. The mountain bikes are fitted with the appropriate gears that reduce the effort. No doubt cycling is the most popular ways of hiking the high Himalayas. This will require a high level of physical fitness.
This is an amazing array of less frequented routes in the mountains where traveling by cycle is an entirely joyful experience.
So, get going for the most adventurous vacation of your lifetime in India.

Mountain Biking Benefits

The benefits of mountain biking for beginners are quite numerous. One of the biggest benefits is the added challenge it provides. You won’t be able to get the same workout from going to the gym, walking, running, swimming, or any other cardiovascular activity for that matter. When you see women mountain biking, pay attention to their legs. Mountain biking is a great way to build leg strength without load bearing. Because you’re seated comfortably on a bike, you’re not going to tire as easily. You’ll burn more calories because of the added challenge. Due to the type of physical activity, your heart rate will increase dramatically and you’ll end up losing weight and gaining muscle.

As you become more acquainted with mountain biking, you’ll notice that you start to lose weight in less time, that is because mountain biking requires more effort due to the rough terrain. If you’ve got bad joints, mountain biking for beginners is an ideal activity because all of your weight will be balanced with no added pressure on your knees.

Kullu to Khardung la is a cycling paradise. There is no question about it. The lure of cycling in the mountains with its crisp blue skies and snow capped peaks was too enticing to ignore.
The quiet roads, the friendly locals, the serene landscape and high altitude all combine together to provide you a safe, fun, at times challenging and at all times visually stimulating experience that few other locations in India and indeed in the world could hope to match.

I believe that Kullu to Khardung La route offers something extraordinary for everyone to remember.
Girls Come & experience this cycling adventure with 100 girls across the country.
Only few days left for registration……register yourself now @ http://yhaindia.org/program_bookings/booking/133
