112Km trail ride through Pench Tiger Reserve and surrounding areas. The trail goes through dense jungle, tribal villages and dolomite mines.
Pench is in Madhya Pradesh(near nagpur) and has the highest density of tigers in India. It has about 32 tigers.
Pench is also the setting of Rudyard Kipling's Jungle book.
We will have forest rangers accompanying us and a gypsy as a backup vehicle when we go into the jungle.

Do check out videos of BBCs documentary on Pench and also a recce video that we've put up.
This is a non-profit event and the contribution made by everyone would be used to organise the event.
We will organise tents, sleeping bags, rock climbing equipment etc but you have to bring your MTB if you want to join us for the ride. We will have some Indian made bicycles with us for those who can't bring a cycle and can do a shorter route.
