Package Itinerary

Many mountain bike routes lay claim to the title of the World’s Greatest, but only the Kali Gandaki Valley trails in the Mustang region of Nepal can claim to be surrounded by five-mile-high peaks, where every night you stay in teahouses run by local villagers and stocked with good food and local beverage.

The Kali Gandaki Valley – the deepest valley in the world – marries natural grandeur, local culture and relative luxury in a combination found nowhere else. This mountain biking holiday in Nepal, on the roof of the world, will give you experience of some tough climbs, technical descents, fast, flow singletrack, and the most spectacular views you can imagine.

You’ll also experience an incredible fight in the route as you travel between Pokhara and Jomsom.

Riding the trails of the legendary Annapurna Circuit and the lower Mustang region, at altitudes of between 1,500m and 4,000m, this mountain biking holiday in Nepal will take you to some of the most beautiful and unexplored places on the planet, where you will experience the most emotional mountain biking of your life.

The cycling tour in Mustang region will show you some of the best place you have ever visited and your experience are further enhanced by being exposed to unique local culture, their lifestyle and traditions. Mustang is a great alternative for travelers who want to experience real Tibetan culture as it was in the past. The Loba (Lo Pa) people are ethnic Tibetan and practice a form of Buddhism from the Sakya lineage.
