Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike in mountains. Sikkim offers easy as well as challenging terrains, with each part of Sikkim- east, west, north, south and all are vastly different from the other. Best time for Biking in Sikkim is from October to January and from April to June.
Sometimes due to heavy rains in June high altitude areas like Gurudongmar Lake, Zero Point and Nathula Pass are not accessible and permits are not provided by Government officials. But the lush green forests, snow peaks hiding behind clouds, beautiful waterfalls make June a perfect month for Biking in Sikkim.
