- The people of North Bengal are also a varied lot. The tea gardens brought in Tribals from Bengal and Bihar. The hill stations attracted people from neighboring Nepal, and the partition of 1947 brought in Hordes of Bengalis from Bangladesh.
- The Hills, the jungles and the serene beauty of undulating tea gardens spread to the horizon.

naturebeyond organizes regular mountain bike tours to the entire north-bengal. All mountain biking tours are customized as per guest specification. The most common routes include Dooars, Darjeeling, Kalimpong, West Sikkim etc. Please follow the following link for a suggested tour itinerary for a biking tour to Siliguri - Mirik - Darjeeling - Kalimpong - Lava - Siliguri (app 10 days).
Mountain Biking is the best way to see the most exotic sights of the Himalaya such as ancient trade routes of Trans-Himalayan traders and the mystifying rural life of the hilly towns and villages. Infact, biking and hiking make the best adventure options to witness the timeless cultural celebrations and life styles of the hill people as well as the rich bio-diversity of the Himalayan heritage.
The biking tours we organize are relaxed programs for general tourists with little or no experience. Although good physical fitness is a must, you do not have to be a racing champion to join them. Do give your body some time to acclimatized with the Indian temperature, especially the ones at the higher altitude, where bikers are exposed to ultraviolet rays, dry weather and less oxygen.
The bikes we use are basic Indian Mountain bikes. You can also bring you own bike and join the tour.
You do not require any special permit traveling within North-Bengal. But if you are an International tourist and have plans to move onward to Sikkim or Bhutan, you will need permits for that, naturebeyond also organizes these permits for its guests on request.
