Meraki : Dehradun - Dhanaulti - Dehradun

We are back with this cycle expedition which was loved by the riders because of the challenging elevation gain in the mountains and the breath-taking views of Dehradun & Dhanaulti. After all, if it doesn't challenge you it doesn't change you. With the success of our Meraki season 1, 2, and 3, we're now launching Meraki Season 4 which will be a ride in the hills again. The ride will be from Dehradun to Dhanaulti and back to Dehradun. Don't limit your challenges but challenge your limits.
During this ride, you will experience the elevations and off-road cycling with a speedy downhill combination. Let's improve our riding skills by riding in the hills again.

Dehradun is made up of two words: 'Dehra' is derived from the word "dera", deriving from "griha" and meaning home. "Dun" or "Doon" is a term for the valley that lies between the Himalayas and the Shivaliks. The district contains Rajaji National Park which is home to several elephants, Benog Wildlife Sanctuary at Mussoorie & Asan Conservation Reserve (Asan Barrage). The Doon Valley has the Terai and Bhabar forests within it as well as the Shivalik hills and Lesser Himalayan Range containing hill stations such as Mussoorie and Dhanaulti.

Dhanaulti is situated at an altitude of 2286m and is known for its quiet environs amidst the alpine forests of Deodar, Rhododendron, and Oak. ECO-Park is the main attraction of Dhanaulti. There are two Eco-parks, "Amber" and "Dhara" about 200 m apart. It has been developed recently by the Forest Department of Uttarakhand with the help of local youth. The adventure sports facility is available for visitors in the form of walking over the flying fox and Burma bridges and riding horses. There is also a facility for visitors to plant a sapling of tree species in the memory of their beloved, which is called as memory sapling plantation.
