Are the e-cycling tours suitable for you ?

    Cycling in the mountains is not an easy game, especially at such high altitude. Nevertheless, e-cycling allows anyone with an average fitness to enjoy cycling in a much easier way. Hence, our e-cycling tours are suitable for those who like to leisurely cycle for 4-6 hours a day. Of course a minimum level of fitness is required as we will be cycling at a high altitude.
