Details

Join Pedal in Tandem's tour of the tranquil Aiyur forest region, nestled in the Melagiri hills of Tamil Nadu. The itinerary combines biking, trekking and camping in a way that'll allow you to immerse yourself in nature and explore this enchanting land.

If you've read Kenneth Anderson's haunting tales of the region, you'll know about its rich biodiversity and intriguing folklore. The elusive Spider Valley, described in his book 'The Tiger Roars', lies in this region - the exact location of the valley still draws debate among nature and trekking enthusiasts.

Our biking routes on this trip weave through hills, forests, farms and several water bodies. It is not mandatory for everyone to ride the entire distance. You could hop into the support vehicle if you wish and still enjoy the rest of the journey.

DAY 1 (17th Mar):
- Arrive at the campsite by 6:30 am
- ~65 km bike ride (moderate difficulty)
- Bonfire, dinner and overnight stay at campsite

DAY 2 (18th Mar):
- ~4 km trek in the forest (moderate difficulty)
- Farm tour
- Depart to Bangalore
