Immerse Yourself into the Journey


We’ll show you the hidden, quaint and scenic side of Mumbai on a mountain bike, a place even most residents of this busy city are completely unaware of. We’ll also ride to one of the largest meditation halls in the world known as the Global Vipassana Pagoda. We begin our adventure with a short boat ride to a disconnected portion of the city that we like to call the adventurous islands of Mumbai. Our rides starts on a narrow road enveloped by widespread lush mangroves that give out the cleanest air you’ll find in the city.
(Mark our words) Soon, we reach the coast and from riding on tarmac we transition to off-road. This is where things begin to get adventurous.
We will be mountain biking to a secret hill-top spot from where the island can truly be appreciated. We then ride up north of the island to visit the light house and the virgin coastline followed by a scrumptious breakfast at The Golden Toff Resort. We sip on chai and enjoy conversations.
After a hearty breakfast, we ride to The Global Vipassana Pagoda which is a meditation dome hall that has a capacity to seat around 8,000 meditators. Later we end our day not with another quick boat ride to the bustling side of the city.
