Crossing both Kunzum Pass and Rohtang Pass, this route. There are 145 km between the two passes. Ensure you are prepared with the appropriate clothing and equipment because the terrain can occasionally be difficult. The summer months of mid-May to mid-October would be the best time to travel.
Bomdila to Tawang
The Himalayas on three sides surround nearly the entire state of Arunachal Pradesh. You’ll ride MTB bikes through breathtakingly stunning green landscapes, gushing rivers, snow-capped mountains, and the occasional fog zone. To travel from one place to another it is around 170 kilometers. Until Sela passes, 4025 meters above sea level and the highest point in the area, the partially two-lane roads are steep.
The road then descends in a relatively short distance after that. The best time to travel the less used path is between early October and early December and then again between early March and early May.
Siliguri to Darjeeling
During the monsoon season, the Meghalaya is one of the wettest regions on the planet. Along the roughly 70-kilometer route are the small communities of Kurseong, Sonada, and Ghoom. Winter clothing should be brought with you because the weather is typically chilly throughout the year.
