I am an avid cyclist and nature lover, born and brought up in Dharamshala. Love riding my mountain bike amidst the beautiful views of Dhauladhar ranges and wonderful nature. Have done a ride in almost all kinds of roads here. Also, I post my ride pictures regularly in my Facebook page - "Hilloferry" and Instagram account "hilloferry".

I aspire to share the joy of riding a mountain bike here in Dharamshala and take you through some of the nature close routes, with less traffic and scenic views.

It's one-of-a-kind adventure and gives an opportunity to see the nature closely.

We had a great experience with Kamal - right from selecting the location (Tea Gardens), explaining the mechanism of gears especially for uphill, storytelling on the way, Kamal ensuring everyone's safety and customized experience considering the fitness levels of everyone in the group and ending it with some great suggestions to explore Dharamshala. Kamal was super professional - he had bicycles in good condition and ensured everyone is comfortable in riding them, he chose a convenient pickup point for us as well. He is also a great guide, we learnt so much about the city from him. Along with the ride, he is also super supporting and he takes great pictures too along the way. Overall, a great and a must-have experience.

I’ve tried cycling trips with many but none were able to explain the operation of a geared bike as well as Kamal. He was calm, and informative and made the ride so much special by watching out for our safety and explaining different aspects of the location in detail. I had my doubts about the roads in Dharmashala but he made it a worthwhile experience. It was a damn good workout!

I took the ride with Kamal in March 21. We cycled around the tea gardens. Kamal is a very thoughtful and patient host. The whole experience was well planned and the views were truly spectacular. Kamal left us with a lot of recommendations for other places after the ride, which were totally worth checking out. Would definitely recommend.

i had an amazing time cycling in the mountain roads. i never thought i could do it but kamal made it possible. i took n number of stops and walked most of the times but kamal was very patient and supportive. more than an accomplishment i enjoyed the entire time through the views. visited a historic temple. took lots of photos. tea garden. kamal is a gentleman and very friendly, you can reach out to him for any query. he does not rush to completion. he keeps a constant touch on how you feeling. he is open to your suggestions. he also suggested us various spots. the bikes are in excellent condition suitable for any height. I am not very regular in cycling but that did not affect the ride at all.. i would love to take this ride everytime i am in dharamshaala and would recommend that cyclists or non cyclists should go for this as city life does not give us this experience. kamal keep up the amazing work and attitude!!!

Kamal is a very helpful person. He answered smallest of my queries patiently even before I booked the experience. Things I liked- 1. I was anxious if I can ride the mountain bike as I had never touched a geared cycle before. But he explained the functionalities very lucidly and I felt at ease while riding it. 2. I had to take multiple stops when riding uphill . He was very patient about it and never I felt embarrassed because I was not able to do what other 3 in the group ( we were two couples)were able to do smoothly. 3. Thoughtfully chosen route- scenery wise and also gradient wise for a beginner. 4. He gave a lot of inputs about how to plan rest of our trip. 5. Easy to talk to and welcoming. Has a pleasant demeanor. Don't hesitate to book the experience. You would not regret it. Good VFM and a very memorable experience. Due to paucity of time could not take the nature walk experience with him. Definitely will book with him when I visit Dharamshala again.

Randomly decided to take up this experience on my visit to Dharamshala and it was such a pleasant surprise! Kamal was a great host and the experience was exactly as mentioned in the description. He had so many stories to share. We saw so many stunning spots to gaze at the hills and take numerous pictures. Kamal also customises the experience to the level of expertise you have in cycling so mine was a beginner difficulty level. He also gives a detailed introduction about the bike and tips that will come in handy not only then but anytime you decide to go cycling in future. Looking forward to go cycling with him again! Thanks Kamal :)
