Nasty Himalayan Cycling Climbs List

So, what are the most challenging cycling trails and peaks in the Himalayas? In this post, you’ll learn about cycling climb difficulty levels.

The first step is to have a formula for gauging cycling climb difficulty levels. The formula was taken from www.climbbybike.com and www.podiumcafe.com were used:

THE FORMULA to  Calculate Diffculty Level

The following formula was used:
(H/D*100)*4 + H²/D + D/1000 + (T-1000)/100

Where:
H = ascent in metres;
D = length of climb in meters;
T =  top of mountain in meters

The last part of the formula only applies to mountains above 1000 meters and adds a fudge factor to approximate the impact of altitude. Also, the formula assumes road bike terrain. Most of these Himalayan routes are not for road bikes, rather Cyclocross, MTB, or Hybrid are more suitable.
