One of the best bike rides I have had!
Sep 2021 • Solo
I recently had an opportunity to bike with Kamal at Dharamshala. It was such an amazing and breathtaking experience, I literally felt close to the nature and saw Dharamshala from a local’s perspective. Kamal is a great guide and a friend who would help design the tour according to your preferences and physical ability. I would definitely recommend taking the cypress tree route rather biking along the nearby village, which gives a great view of the Dauladhar, and Shivalikh ranges and let’s you touch the soul of a Himachali village.

And like I said Kamal is a great biking companion, who is well trained, knows the ins and outs of the area and is a great company, all this was important to me since I went on a solo ride. So if you are around in Dharamshala, I highly recommend an early morning biking ride with Kamal - Hilloferry!

Thanks again Kamal for an amazing experience!

Cycling in the mountains

The idea of a guided tour on a bicycle was innovative in itself. Kamal took us to various beautiful places in Dharamshala. He also made sure we all were enjoying the ride and were safe. The quality of bicycles offered were spectacular and most appropriate for the terrain.

Cycling among the mountains is surreal
Nov 2019 • Friends
Thanks to kamal for taking us on a beautiful cycle tour among the gorgeous mountains of Dhadamashala.

Cycling gave us an experience which we will remember for the rest of our lives and will keep doing it over and over again whenever we get a chance. Uphill ride is always tough but the downhill makes up for all the hard work. Kamal was with through and through , guiding us to the best of the spots , gave us expert level cycling lessons and needless to mention took some great pics.

If you have the time I highly recommend going for this beautiful experience , you won't regret it.

BIKING with KAMAL
On a cool sunny day, following my guide Kamal, I had a most wonderful and rewarding bike ride under the gaze of the Dhauladhar mountains with its highest peak at 17,000 feet.

First I went to our meeting place at Dharamsala Bazaars area. Like a magician, Kamal set up the portable changing room right there. I was given a nice set of clean biking clothes sealed in plastic bag, protective helmet, a good mountain bike, and was told to practice a little bit in the parking lot. I love biking but had never bike by my most beloved mountains, the Himalayas.

Through villages and orchards, pine tree wood and green valleys, crossing bridges and crawling up the hills, it was one of the most wonderful close to nature experiences I ever had. And this was possible thanks to the professional and caring services provided by Kamal.

Kamal was very mindful of my ability and strength (I intent to collect my retirement pension for many years to come), allowed many stops along the way to take my pictures and shared them with me afterwards, let me zip through the downhills and walk up the uphills. Away from the crowd of McLoedganj, I got to experience the openness and peacefulness of land. Without this HiloFerry tour, I could never give myself such experience.
When we returned to Dharamsala, Kamal got me a taxi and made sure the driver got my address and the fee clearly.

So kind and considerate, so professional and efficient, Kamal is the best guide who will show you the true natural beauty of the land he must have loved dearly. Anyone who ever comes to Dharamsala should at least once enjoy the region majestic and yet peaceful beauty under the guidance of Kamal. If I lived in Dharamsala, this HiloFerry tour would be my monthly fitness routine..

Wow.. I am less of words to say thank you. Thank you so so much Mam for your lovely and valuable feedback for this cycling tour. It means a lot to me and I am very pleased to know that everything went as per expectations and that you enjoyed the ride, route and peace with nature thoroughly.. It was a blessing for me to have you as guest Mam, so kind, so polite and so wonderful person.. You are a gem Mam, an inspiration and may God give you more strength, more power. Take care Mam. I really hope that I see you in future too, will always be a pleasure.. Wish you lots and lots of happiness, good health and joyous life.. Many regards, Kamal
