An ideal destination known for its vast stretches of beaches, swaying coconut palms, alluring backwaters and many more amazing destinations, Kerala earlier was not well known for adventure tourism. The prospect of Kerala as one of the favorite spots for adventure tourism has hitherto remained untapped to its fullest. With MTB, a mega-mountain biking event, things are looking brighter than ever before.

An initiative of the State government, MTB aims to invite the attention of tourists, travelers and adventure-seekers across the globe to scale, gauge and explore the prospects of running wild in the backyard of God's Own Country!

MTB Kerala Second Edition

Come February, adventure aficionados across the globe will gear up for an adventure ride in Gods' Own Country. The success of the previous year's Mountain Biking has triggered a great deal of enthusiasm. The second edition of the event is all set to be flagged off on Feb 15, 2014. An initiative of the Department of Tourism, MTB Kerala was the first of its kind in the State when it was announced two years ago. Today, this mountain cycling challenge has proved its stature, marked by loads of thrill and fun. This time, the event is poised to scale new heights and will take the riders to the hills, valleys and mountains of Wayanad - a green paradise in Kerala.
