Mountain cycling is pure love, to be honest, without a doubt. But a cycle will test your patience and stamina as compared to an e-cycle that makes the work a lot easier because it’s a paddle assist cycle.
I would personally recommend trying both and share your experience with other fellow travelers.
But let me again remind you that the mountain has a lot of uphill. Don’t feel underconfident about your strengths that uphill has downhill too. So, it’s a good idea to cycle in the mountains.
Tibetan Monasteries in Bir will be counted among the most looked out things in your Bir trip apart from Paragliding.
Am ‘I right, But why?
Because of the culture and discipline, they exhibit in their words and actions.
Bir Monasteries to visit –
(taking Volvo bus stand as a common point)
If you are going to Bir by taking an overnight Volvo, then Nyingyang Monastery is hardly 1 min walk away from the Volvo bus stand.
Tsering Jong Monastery
This monastery is close to Chaugan Chowk. It’s 5 mins of walk from the Volvo bus stand.
Chokling Monastery is present in the Tibetan market and 10 mins of walking distance from the bus stand.
Palpung Sherabling Monastery
It is 7 km away from the Bir Billing landing site. The monastery has been best traveled on cycle or two-wheeler because of the scenic beauty it surrounds throughout the journey. You can also walk to the monastery, but the time taken would be around 2-3 hrs.
Now, most of you thinking Paragliding and that too in the winter season?
