MONDURO 3.0- "GHOST OF THE MOUNTAINS"
Date: 9th to 14th November 2023
Mon-Duro Tawang is an Enduro Biking event, which is conducted every year in the month of November at Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh. “Mon” stands for Monpas. This event will give birth to a whole new experience of mountain biking wherein the riders will be riding down virgin trails along with the Rhododendron trees and lush green meadows. Every trail has a long-lost history buried underneath the lapse of time.
This edition's theme is dedicated to the elusive Snow Leopard, also known as the 'Ghost of the Mountains'.
Renowned for its stunning beauty, agility, and remarkable adaptability, the snow leopard holds a special place in both our natural world and the cultural heritage of the Mon Valley. Fables of this beast have been passed down many generations in Tawang until it was actually spotted in an area close to the 'Thankaphey Trails' (Mounduro Day 2) by the WWF and the Department of Forest Tawang, Govt of Arunachal Pradesh.
Agility, adaptability, speed, and the ability to thrive in the harshest of environments are common traits that Enduro riders share with the Ghost of the Mountain.
