Riding into Zero point at Pindari Glacier is like nothing else we have ridden on earth, with 7000m Himalayan peaks on all sides and a trail that feels that it has been sent from heaven. It’s remote location and lung-busting climbs make this a destination only for those with a real love for the mountains but the rewards just keep coming. It’s tech and its tough, but it has to be our favourite trail.
Pindari Glacier is located in the Himalayas near Kumaon, Uttarakhand. The cycling tour features a fast single track with incredible climbs and descents, technical sections, drop offs and rock gardens. All of this is made jaw-dropping with exquisite views of the mighty Himalayas.
The Pindari trail comes recommended by multiple world champion Tracy Moseley and MTB photographer Dan Milner.

We launched the Himalayan Bike Bar in Manali two years ago and have seen success so far. The idea was born a long time ago, but was able to come to fruition only in 2014 with the evolution of adventure tourism and an increasing number of bikers riding the Manali-Leh trails.
I have always been passionate about biking and rode almost every day. Even an hour on my favourite wheels would help me feel better. I was happy to play a role in changing the mindset of people from looking at biking as a children’s activity to something everyone can do.
The Himalayan Bike Bar has some killer bikes, including Firefox, Trek and Scott, and has always been there to motivate aspiring riders and guide them in enhancing their skills.
