Self Guided or Guided

It is your personal preference to which category you wish to choose. Only you can decide what you are best suited too. If you take a read below, you can find some more information to help you decide.

Self Guided

A self-guided holiday is where you will navigate a route (we provide route instructions and maps) by yourself as opposed to a guided tour where you will be escorted by a tour guide. You have the freedom to decide the time at which you leave each day, where to stop and places to visit along the routes provided. Independent cycling holidays give you maximum flexibility as you can cycle at your own pace and take in your surroundings as you go. Here at MTB Kashmir on Cycling, we give you detailed cycling route notes, as well as maps so you can find your way along all the routes.


A guided holiday, on the other hand, means you have the security of a local guide who knows the routes and region and will guide you along the route each day. There will be set times to depart, planned itinerary for the day and as your guide will be local will be able to give you local history and show you any hidden beauty spots that only the locals would know about. You will still receive your tour package that includes guide book, route map etc which you can read if you want to (please check what’s included a section as each tour can be different).
