Considered as the highest Enduro Race in Asia and only enduro event of India, this event aims to attract riders from across the globe, thereby reviving the forgotten history of ancient routes, once trodden by the 6th Dalai Lama.
‘Mon’ stands for Land of Monpas, and ‘Duro’ depicts Enduro format of MTB : related to a long-distance race for bicycles or motor vehicles, typically over rough terrain.
Organized by the Tawang Cycling Association (TCA) in collaboration with Arunachal Pradesh’s Department of Tourism, Spokehub Racing, WhackyTalky, GT Adventures.
According to Monduro official website, Tawang has a nascent mountain biking culture. The region has great potential to become known as a bicycling haven. There are numerous trails across the town, which were once used for commuting by local populace. For bike enthusiasts, it’s the ideal destination, due to its geography, history, and climate. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has altered people’ lifestyles, making it more important than ever to promote cycling and, by extension, health.
