All about the The Golden Triangle Bike Tour.

A cycling holiday in Rajasthan is an exquisite and invigorating way to experience the cultural highlights of ancient India. A few destinations including Talabgaon and Dausa are as rural as can be. Locals here live in thatched huts and tend to their livestock for a living. Talabgaon is the perfect way to delve into the rich culture of the Rajasthani region as it showcases the ancient Indian way of life where modernity and opulence is obscure.

Rajasthan has a rich music and dance culture with its own distinct style and plays a major part of the local celebrations. We love this tour for the rich music and dance culture, outstanding palaces, forts and museums, rural villages and stomach loads of lovely Tandoori food !
