Sacred Rides

Treasures of the Himalaya

Draped along the great­est heights of the Himalaya, Nepal is where the cold of the moun­tains meets the steamy heat of the Indi­an Plains. It’s a thor­ough­ly colour­ful slice of Asia — a land of yaks and yetis, Stu­pas and Sher­pas, and some of the most epic moun­tain bik­ing on Earth. 

Soar­ing snow-capped moun­tains shim­mer with rain­bows of prayer flags, while the intense streets of Kath­man­du become a cease­less fren­zy of chat­ter­ing ven­dors and gar­ish signs. Nepal’s crag­gy chunk of the Himalayas offers world-class ter­rain, pep­pered with rus­tic moun­tain vil­lages, and hun­dreds of undu­lat­ing trails that have been trod­den upon for centuries.

This Ride is a tale of two val­leys. The first half is spent rid­ing on the breath­tak­ing sin­gle­track of the lush hills sur­round­ing the Kath­man­du Val­ley. At the cen­ter of this val­ley lies Kath­man­du City — a UNESCO world her­itage site that is almost entire­ly an open-air muse­um, with hun­dreds of medieval tem­ples, palaces, shrines and stat­ues dot­ted around the nar­row streets. On the sec­ond half, we trav­el to the con­trast­ing arid Kali Gan­da­ki val­ley in the remote Low­er Mus­tang region. Fol­low­ing an ancient trade route between Nepal and Tibet, we will ride through the world’s deep­est val­ley on the foothills of some of the tallest moun­tains on Earth.  

Is This Ride For You?

You are an expe­ri­enced, skilled moun­tain bik­er with very sol­id moun­tain bike han­dling skills. You have a strong fit­ness lev­el and can han­dle long, stren­u­ous climbs. You have advanced-lev­el tech­ni­cal skills and expe­ri­ence in a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent ter­rain, and you have no prob­lems descend­ing a set of stairs, for exam­ple. You don’t have a fear of fly­ing (there are two flights in small planes on this trip). You are excit­ed to explore what the locals ride on a com­bi­na­tion of sin­gle­track, old mule trails and dirt tracks among some of the most mag­nif­i­cent moun­tain ranges on plan­et earth! You have a sol­id, well-main­tained do-it-all trail bike (with rough­ly 130–160mm of trav­el, drop­per post and beefy tires. Rentals also available).

Wel­come to Nepal!  We will meet you at the Trib­hu­van Inter­na­tion­al Air­port and trans­fer you over to our pic­turesque hotel in Nagarkot, locat­ed about 1.5 hours out­side of Kath­man­du City. We’ll build our bikes in the evening and get to meet our fel­low trav­ellers over some local beer.

Note: We rec­om­mend rid­ers trav­el­ling from any­where out­side of Asia to arrive in Nepal a day or two ear­ly to allow your body to adjust and to ensure you leave some time for any delayed bag­gages / flights. For rid­ers arriv­ing ear­ly, Hotel Ambas­sador is our rec­om­mend­ed hotel in Kath­man­du, and also the meet­ing point on Day 1.

Impor­tant: Our van leaves Kath­man­du at mid-day, so rid­ers should either get on flights land­ing before 12 PM, or arrive a day prior.

After catch­ing up on some need­ed rest after the long flights, we’ll have a relaxed break­fast and pre-trip meeting.

We will start the ride by climb­ing towards the sum­mit of Nagarkot Hill — one of the high­est points in the Kath­man­du Val­ley. From there, we’ll descend to Nala on a fast and flowy for­est trail los­ing about 2,000 feet in elevation.

At the end of the descent, we will be trans­ferred to lunch back at our accom­mo­da­tion before ven­tur­ing out for some more trail fun in the afternoon.

Today we’ll ride on a wide array of vil­lage trails, cross­ing through wood­ed forests and rice pad­dies and end­ing in the walled-city of Bhak­ta­pur (lit­er­al trans­la­tion: city of devo­tees), a medieval town where we’ll find more tem­ples than houses.

A local guide will give us a tour of this breath­tak­ing World Her­itage Site, allow­ing us to explore the beau­ti­ful palaces and tem­ples before enjoy­ing din­ner at a tra­di­tion­al pago­da style restaurant.

We’ll set off ear­ly morn­ing to Kathmandu’s air­port to catch our plane to Pokhara. After the 30-minute flight, we will trans­fer over to our hotel in the Lake­side dis­trict of Pokhara.

While the bikes are being trans­ferred to Mus­tang, you can explore the area as you wish for the rest of the after­noon; you can plan an excur­sion to the near­by hills, go for a ped­al-boat ride on Fewa Lake, get a bird’s eye view of the beau­ti­ful lake city and the gor­geous Mac­cha­puchare moun­tain on a paraglid­er, or sim­ply relax at the hotel while enjoy­ing a well-deserved massage. 

Rise and shine for anoth­er ear­ly morn­ing flight, albeit an incred­i­bly spec­tac­u­lar one. The 20-minute flight from Jom­som is one of the most breath­tak­ing flights in the world, and will take us straight into the heart of the Mus­tang Val­ley — deep in the Himalayas — as we spot the 7th and 10th high­est peaks in the world on either side.

Once we arrive in Jom­som, we’ll unpack our bikes and start rid­ing towards Kag­beni, an ancient vil­lage on the banks of the Kali Gan­da­ki river.

A mas­sive day with over 6,000 feet of descend­ing awaits. We’ll ride along the Muk­ti­nath ridge and climb towards the scenic Lupra Pass before fol­low­ing a trail down towards the vil­lage of Lupra, rid­ing over nar­row and tech­ni­cal singletrack.

Once we arrive in Lupra, we’ll con­tin­ue descend­ing down the Pan­da Kho­la to head back to Kag­beni for lunch. Post-lunch, we will shut­tle back to Muk­ti­nath and climb up to Lupra pass a sec­ond time, to ride anoth­er amaz­ing fast descent down to the Kali Gan­da­ki Valley. 

Today, we’ll reach the high­est point of our entire trip — a mon­strous ele­va­tion of 4,300 meters above sea level.

The air will get thin­ner and the trail will get steep­er as we shut­tle to the holy town of Muk­ti­nath where the bike ascent begins. 

It will be a chal­leng­ing day, but we’ll be reward­ed with a 5,000 feet descent through flowy, high Himalayan land­scape,  breath­tak­ing views and no short­age of pic­ture-per­fect vistas.

Today may be our most epic day yet. We’ll descend from the high alti­tudes of Mus­tang to the pine forests of Kalopani fol­low­ing the old trail along the riv­er, all the while star­ing up at the two 8000 meter peaks of Anna­pur­na and Dhaulagiri.

Anoth­er day of diver­si­ty as we descend from the alpine Kalopani vil­lage to the sub­trop­ic jun­gles of Tatopani on a 15 mile descent.

A quick lunch break at Tatopani, and we’ll con­tin­ue rid­ing towards Beni where our van to Pokhara awaits.

After a leisure­ly break­fast at our hotel in Pokhara, we’ll shut­tle up to the World Peace Pago­da to ride a quick but fun for­est descent fin­ish­ing at our lake­side lunch restaurant.

After break­fast, we’ll make our way to the air­port, catch our return flight to Kath­man­du air­port and shut­tle to our hotel.

The rest of the after­noon will be spent explor­ing and indulging once more in this far­away land and cul­ture. We will con­verge in the evening for a cel­e­bra­to­ry din­ner to mark the end of our epic journey.

We’ll have shut­tles depart­ing all day to take you back to Kath­man­du for your flight home.

The fol­low­ing data rep­re­sents a typ­i­cal itin­er­ary, but adven­ture trav­el can be unpre­dictable and our Guides may need to make last-minute changes to ensure your enjoy­ment. Inclement weath­er, road clo­sures, changes to the itin­er­ary to accom­mo­date requests, and oth­er issues may affect the itin­er­ary. The ride data rep­re­sents an ‘aver­age’ itin­er­ary, and may dif­fer when you actu­al­ly show up to ride. Our guides make every effort to stick to the itin­er­ary as post­ed, but your safe­ty is our #1 priority.

Skill Levels

Black diamond.

The Black Diamond Rides are  suitable for riders looking for that edge. Maybe it’s the edge of a drop, the edge of a cliff, or singletrack requiring focus and fast reactions developed from extensive experience riding “the edge”. You will find yourself on steep trails of varied surfaces. In the Pacific North West that could be slick roots and loam, in Nepal you will find exposed granite in the Mustang Valley and in Guatemala it maybe narrow stairways through cliffside villages. While airtime is rarely required, the ability to find the backside or clean a tabletop should be comfortable or in a state of progress. Obstacles on Black rides are likely to be outside the range of your bikes ability to cover your goofs with its awesome suspension and grip.

Blue Square

In general, Blue trails are narrower than green trails, encounter unavoidable obstacles such as roots, rocks, and drops that are up to 8-inches tall. You will want to have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of mountain biking including body positions, powerful braking, cornering, riding on varied terrain, steep sections and experience riding trails that requires line choice. Airtime is not mandatory, but you will find yourself on trails with alternate lines giving you the option.

Double Black Diamond

A Double Black ride is for those that already know they are looking for a Double Black. It’s going to be very hard and require advanced bike handling skills. You will find yourself on trails with sections most non-riders would look at and say, “that’s totally nuts!”. You will know how to look at a line and contemplate where it will work and where it won’t. Drops of a couple feet should be comfortable and getting your bike off the ground should feel predictable and fun.

Green Circle

Typically, green Rides are safe for beginners. Green Rides may have both avoidable and unavoidable obstacles. Trails are generally low grade, wide, consistent surface texture and have minimal features. You are likely to come across unavoidable obstacles 2-inches or shorter, which is small enough for mountain bike tires to simply roll over. More challenging than tarmac, but in general, a wonderful Ride for those riders new to mountain biking or looking for a casual experience.

Fitness Levels

A Black Fitness ride will test you. Aside from needing to be able to manage up to 6 hours on the bike, day after day, including distance up to 50km/30miles and elevation gains up to 1750m/5000feet of climbing, you will be adding extra challenges along the route like periods of hike-a-bike and the extra effort required by the whole body to safely dance with your bike over technical terrain. Generally, riders who are up for a Black Fitness ride, likely spend time on the bike a couple times each week.

Blue should be considered a good deal more effort than our Green Rides.  You should be able to handle 3 to 5 hours in the saddle covering up to 45km/30miles and be able to pull off a big day of 1000m/3000feet of elevation gain. Managing fuel is important as well.  You should have a good understanding how your body responds to multiple days on the bike. We will help with positive coaching, a manageable pace and plenty of trailside snacks.

A Double Black will be for those with the strength and endurance to get to the top of anything they want and understand the term “turning the screw”. Distance could be quite high on some routes and elevation gain numbers could hit 2000m/6000 feet+ in a day. You are likely riding multiple days a week during the dry periods and have a trainer or belong to a gym for the rest of the year.

You should be ready to spend 2-4 hours per day on the bike. Mileage may be up to 30km/20 miles and elevation gain will be under 500m/1500feet. On e-MTB tours, numbers will be higher, however the approximate effort would be considered similar to a standard Green Circle ride. If you get on your bike once a week, you will be just fine. However, when preparing for a Ride, you will benefit from more rides and time in the saddle.

Awesome! Riding with Friends is the Best!

BREATH-TAKING LANDSCAPES + VIBRANT CULTURE IN THE HIMALAYAS OF NEPAL

“Trip-of-a-lifetime” is an overused phrase these days, however it’s how most of our riders inevitably describe their experience of mountain biking in Nepal.

From the lush valleys and bustling villages of the Kathmandu Valley, to the immense and arid mountainscape of Lower Mustang, every step of this journey is filled with adventure.

Then there’s the culture. Stupas and prayer wheels in Kathmandu. Prayer flags lining the trails and suspension bridges of the Mustang Valley. Local farmers herding yaks through villages, with hens, ducks and children running around their hooves. You’ll quickly see why this is the “Trip-of-a-lifetime”.

Tour itinerary

Many mountain bike routes lay claim to the title of the World’s Greatest, but only on our mountain bike tour Nepal will you be surrounded by five-mile-high peaks, and stay in teahouses run by local villagers stocked with good food and cold beer.

You should arrive in Kathmandu the day before your tour start date, to allow for any travel or baggage delays, and to give yourself time to relax before your adventure begins.

We recommend Hotel Ambassador, which is where your guides will meet you on the morning of day 1.

On the first day of your mountain bike tour Nepal you’ll be met by our guides at Hotel Ambassador and transferred to your accommodation in the beautiful hill-top village of Nagarkot, located 1.5 hour East of Kathmandu at an altitude of 2,000 metres above sea level.

When we arrive you’ll be welcomed with a glass of Sherpa beer and a view to die for. You’ll be introduced to your support crew and will have time to build bikes and get settled into your rooms.

After a delicious breakfast we’ll ride straight from our ridgetop home climbing up towards the summit of Nagarkot Hill. Winding our way up on a paved road and then on a dirt track at a fairly steep gradient, climbing all the way to 2,150m.

Once we’ve caught our breath and taken enough photos, we’ll peel onto a fast and flowy descent through pine forests and houses. A short mid-descent climb later, we will ride through the forest again, all the way down to the valley floor. This will warm up the legs, lungs and brain in anticipation of the rest of the adventure.

Today we pack up and bid farewell to our hill-top home as we ride to the mediaeval city of Bhaktapur.

After a short but steep climb to Nagarkot summit, we set off on a fun forest singletrack descent that continues through villages (watch out for hens and ducks!). There are a couple of rocky sections before we’re dropped out onto the road, and start a 20-minute climb on gorgeous forest singletrack.

Bleary-eyed, we’ll take a very early morning flight to the lake city of Pokhara.

Once in Pokhara, we will get into our 4×4 vehicle and start our journey into the Mustang Valley on one of the most scenic yet challenging drives in the world.

During a day of serious off-roading along the Kali Gandaki River, we travel through the world’s deepest gorge to reach the picturesque town of Kalopani by sundown.

Waking up in one of the most beautiful villages in the Himalayas nestled in the laps of the two mega giant Dhaulagiri (8,167m high) and Annapurna (8,079m high), we will be transported by our trusted 4wd into Jomsom, the starting point of today’s ride.

What follows will be one of the most spectacular and emotional mountain bike rides of your life as we climb to the small town of Kagbeni at 2,900m.

A shuttle ride to Muktinath provides a slightly slower start to the day, but with the ever present nervous anticipation that comes with any day of riding in Nepal.

Today’s first task is the 300m ascent to the breath-taking trail through the Lupra Pass at 4,100m. This starts off on pristine singletrack that will make you wish you had the lungs to ride it hard. Then the gradient really ramps up and for 20 mins makes riding a real challenge.

After a shuttle ride to the 3,800 metre-high holy site of Muktinath, we will spend the morning gaining the last 500 metres to the highest point of the trip at 4,300m.

Having wiped the sweat and dust from our brows and fuelled up, we will be appropriately ‘switched on’ for the unbelievable trail that follows; a stunning singletrack descent that twists and weaves through tight Nepalese villages, past grazing buffalo and workers in their fields.

Today gifts us a beautiful ride, leaving the arid, open landscape of Kagbeni and leading to the lush high alpine forests of Kalopani.

Meandering through ancient villages, alleyways, apple orchards and some of the most pristine forest singletracks in the Himalayas, we follow the mighty Kali Gandaki River all the way to the Thakali village of Tukche. A spot which also happens to be home to the most famous apple crumble in Nepal.

A day of dirt trails today in what are our last few hours on the bike in the Mustang region of Nepal. It may be a dirt road, but in Nepal everything on the bike seems bigger, better, more involved and it is a place where dirt roads are fun!

This is one of the biggest no-shuttle descents most people do in their lives. We will exit the Mustang Valley today and head back to Pokhara. We’re not using planes this time, however, so it’s bikes all the way down!

Our last day of riding is a short one as we give some time for our bikes to be transported by land to Kathmandu.

After a leisurely breakfast, we will drive to the famous World Peace Pagoda, perched on a hill across the lake from Pokhara overlooking the city. One quick ‘kora’ of the Pagoda later and then we’re descending on a fun, flowy, yet tricky forest singletrack back down to the base of the hill. If time permits, we might be able to squeeze in a second lap as well!

After the last morning flight of the tour we make it back to Kathmandu, transfer to our hotel, and make sure all kit and bikes are safely tucked away for our respective return journeys.

The rest of the day revolves around hitting the town for our private dinner, drinks, exchanging stories and cementing new friendships. The ideal way to finish a tour that is so spectacular that only those you shared it with can truly understand its majesty.

Sadly this is your departure day. We will transport you back to the airport and say our goodbyes, as you bid farewell to Nepal.

We want you to have the best experience of mountain biking in Nepal, so it’s important to be sure that this is the perfect mountain bike adventure, with the right level of challenge, for you.

You’re an experienced mountain biker, riding at least twice a week through the season and comfortable on: long climbs on double track; steep, loose singletrack descents; rough, rocky trails, some with exposure; rutted, uneven terrain; and suspension bridges. Read more on our intermediate+ skill level .

Does this sound like you? Your vacation time is precious and we want to be absolutely sure that you’re making the most of it. Be honest with yourself, if this adventure isn’t right for you, we have other MTB tours that may be a better fit for your mountain biking ability.

Please note: The skill level required reflects an overall rating for the trails on the trip but you should expect to find sections and obstacles that push your ability levels.

Skill level: Intermediate+

  • You are generally comfortable riding most types of terrain in different conditions: singletrack, double track, muddy, dry, loose, bedrock…
  • You can brake, use gears and corner instinctively
  • You’ll have a go on moderate technical features, such as small rock gardens, small drops and steeper sections, but may get off and walk certain technical features
  • You mountain bike two or three times a week throughout your biking season
  • And the ‘+’ part of ‘Intermediate+’ means that you will be aiming to tackle more of those moderate technical features

Fitness level: 5/7

  • You have a good level of bike fitness, exercising at least three times every week throughout the year, for an hour at a time
  • You can ride a mountain bike for up to six hours a day at a moderate pace, with snack and photo stops, for three or more consecutive days
  • You can tackle two or three fairly significant climbs a day, up to 600 metres each

Typical trails you’ll be riding

  • Double track: undulating and sometimes steep forest roads made up of hard-packed dirt, and loose double track roads with golf ball- to fist-sized rocks
  • Singletrack: ancient walking paths, at times very loose, with golf ball- to head-sized rocks, some deep ruts, and some sections of sand
  • Forest trails: dirt tracks crossed with roots and sometimes very narrow through the trees
  • Trail surfaces may be dry and sandy, or muddy, depending on the weather, and you will encounter river crossings
  • You may have to carry your bike for 100m or so to reach the summit of climbs
  • Suspension bridges are also typical in Nepal, you can ride or walk these

The ideal bike for the trails in the Himalayas of Nepal is a good quality full-suspension mountain bike with 29” or 27.5” wheels, dropper seat post, and 120mm -140mm of travel front and rear. Enduro style tyres that have robust puncture protection, such as the Maxxis Minion with EXO+ sidewalls are ideal for this adventure.

We recommend travelling with your own bike, and we have some handy tips on how to do this. When travelling with your own bike, you must ensure that it has been properly serviced before the trip.

We only run small group mountain bike tours to ensure that everyone has the best experience possible, and there will be a maximum of 12 people in each group. The minimum number of people we require to run this mountain bike tour in Nepal is six.

Our mountain bike tour in the Himalayas of Nepal caters for a wide age range; typically between 30- and 55-years-old.

Regardless of age, you must have the appropriate level of physical fitness and mountain biking skills [link to skills section] to participate in this adventure. Please refer to clause 14 of our terms and conditions of booking to find more information on rider age.

This mountain bike tour in Nepal is a guided mountain bike vacation, ideal for intermediate+ mountain bikers. The terrain you’ll be riding on consists of double track and singletrack through thick forests, villages and across high plateaux and mountain passes.

You’ll encounter some steep climbs and rooty sections, as well as fabulous, swooping descents. Altitude is a factor in this trip and we have some tips for riding at high altitudes and managing the effects of altitude.

The distances we cover each day range from 15km to 50km, in accordance with the technical difficulty of the trails and height gain/ loss on each stage.

Each evening your guides will chat with you about the following day’s mountain biking and give you an idea of the sorts of trails you can look forward to.

If there’s anything you feel anxious about, your guides will be happy to discuss it with you. 

No, you only need to carry a 20 litre day pack   with you whilst riding. We have a support vehicle and driver who will transfer your luggage to your next accommodation each day, and have it ready and waiting for your arrival.

Your guide will be very happy to give you some bike skills help during your trip to help improve your confidence and your enjoyment of your mountain bike tour in Nepal. If there is a section that you would prefer not to ride, then you can simply hop off your bike and walk.

You won’t be the only one to walk certain sections and it’s not a competition in biking ability; it’s a mountain bike holiday!

Your mountain bike guides are local to Nepal and experienced professionals who have a real passion for mountain biking and for the culture and landscape of Nepal. 

Your safety is their number one priority, closely followed by your enjoyment of your mountain bike tour in the Himalayas. They will always be on-hand to answer any questions or requests you may have throughout your trip. Meet your mountain bike guides in Nepal .

On this mountain biking holiday in the Kathmandu Valley and Lower Mustang regions of Nepal you will be staying in the best quality accommodation available in each area. This ranges from a hill-top cottage outside Kathmandu to local tea houses in the heart of the valley.

Accommodation in the more remote villages up in the mountains is very basic, but you’ll often be staying in family homes, which gives you the chance to get to know the local Nepali people and understand something of their way of life.

All meals starting with dinner on day one, and ending with breakfast on day 12.  

Read the full kit list to find out what you need to pack for your mountain bike tour in the Himalayas of Nepal.

Yes, you will have the chance to do laundry in Pokhara.

Unfortunately not. We are working hard to provide each and every customer who rides with us an unparalleled mountain bike experience in every destination we ride. This takes years of experience, riding and planning to get right, and a drone adds a very real danger to the group’s riding experience and health & safety. 

Riders travelling to Kathmandu from Europe, Africa, and the Atlantic coast of North/South America are advised to travel via Middle East Asian cities (namely Doha, Bahrain, or Abu Dhabi) or Delhi.

Major airlines that fly this route are Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways, and Gulf Air.

Riders travelling to Kathmandu from the Pacific coast of North/South America, and Australia or New Zealand are advised to travel via South East Asian cities (namely Bangkok, Singapore, or Hong Kong).

Major airlines for this route are Thai Airways, Silk Air, and Dragon Air.

Here’s a video showing you how to pack your bike for travel .

Short-term tourist visas can be purchased on arrival at Kathmandu airport and can be purchased with card or USD in cash.

Alternatively, to save time after your long flight, you can purchase your visa online in advance at VisaHQ although this is a slightly more expensive service.

In all circumstances it is your responsibility to ensure that your documents are up-to-date and meet the requirements for travelling into and out of Nepal.

Arrival and departure details 

Your mountain bike tour in Nepal will start and end in Kathmandu. Your driver will meet you outside, just across the road, when you leave the arrivals area of Tribhuvan International Airport, which is the only international airport in Kathmandu, and he will be holding an H+I Adventures sign.

If you’re arriving one or two days before the tour start date, airport transfer to your hotel is included in the tour price.

We recommend staying at Hotel Ambassador in Kathmandu, and we can make your booking for pre-/post-tour nights for you. This will also be our start point on day 1, and if you’re not staying at Hotel Ambassador you will need to make your own way there for pick-up on day 1.

The first and last days of your mountain bike tour Nepal are dedicated travelling days and, we would ask you to arrive no later than 12 noon on day 1, and depart no earlier than 10am on the final day.

However, we recommend arriving in Kathmandu a day or two before the tour start date, to allow for any travel delays and to adjust to local time, and we have put together this handy guide to spending 24 hours in Kathmandu .

Our local mountain bike guides in Nepal are of the very highest standard. They are qualified in first-aid, and have the knowledge and experience to lead a group safely in these very remote, wild and unpredictable parts of Nepal.

Our guides have years of experience in the saddle on the Nepalese trails and will be able to enhance your holiday with facts and fables on local history, flora and fauna. They’re also genuinely nice people and will do their best to make sure that everyone in the group has a great time.

The majority of accommodation that we  use in this mountain bike tour Nepal is . Whilst basic by western standards, these hospitable lodges provide relative luxury in what is possibly one of the most remote areas on the planet.

We have researched these areas extensively to select the most comfortable accommodation in the region, and we have planned the itinerary accordingly.

While we encourage you to eat what the locals eat – organic traditional Nepalese food – there is also the option of ordering from the extensive menu that ranges from Himalayan style lasagne to the good old Yak steak.

All meals are included in the tour price and we will eat as a group at each mealtime.

No specific vaccinations are needed to enter Nepal, but visitors are recommended to be vaccinated against Hepatitis A and B, typhoid fever, rabies and Japanese encephalitis. The most common illnesses suffered by travellers to Nepal are stomach-related due to consumption of contaminated food or water.

You should refrain from consuming water or ice that hasn’t been purified. Bottled mineral water is available almost everywhere.

Altitude sickness is a common ailment above 2,500 metres if you ascend too quickly. Headaches and nausea are the first indications of this malady. It’s easily avoided by taking your time as you gain elevation to let your body acclimatise.

Also, be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, and sunglasses when biking at altitude. The sun in the Himalayas is extremely strong. Drink plenty of water while biking, even if it’s cold and you don’t feel thirsty.

It is wise to carry basic medicines such as paracetamol or aspirin for fever and pain and Pepto-Bismol for stomach upset.

Your health and safety on tour is our top priority and when you travel with us you will be covered by Global Rescue emergency medical and evacuation services .

You should always consult your own doctor or physician before travelling to new countries to seek their advice on matters concerning your health abroad.

The currency in Nepal is Nepali Rupees (NPR). Even though most international currencies such as US Dollars, Pound Sterling, Euros, or Australian Dollars are widely accepted, it is advisable to exchange into the local currency upon arrival at the airport or any bank.

ATMs are only available in Kathmandu and Pokhara, so you will need to carry enough cash for extra expenses through the trip. Note: you can’t exchange money in your home country, it is a closed currency, so you will need to exchange money on arrival. There is an ATM across from Hotel Ambassador.

It is not compulsory to tip your guide team in Nepal, although it will be very much appreciated.

We suggest a tip of 10% of the cost of your tour should be paid to your mountain bike guide at the end of the trip, which will then be divided between all drivers, support staff and fixers, if you feel you have had a good experience on your mountain bike tour Nepal.

You are required as a condition of booking to be insured against medical and personal accident risks. In this policy you must include cover for mountain biking and we recommend that you take out a policy which covers cancellation and baggage, including your bike.

We work with Global Rescue whose policies are specially designed for adventure travel and you can arrange your insurance cover directly with them.

Create your own review

To pull off a bike trip to Mustang Valley there are a number logistical hurdles that need to be cleared. We are blessed to have Mandil Pradhan as our fearless leader. When it comes to the details, explaining Nepalese culture, and finding the right trails to explore, he is extraordinary at pulling everything together in a seamless fashion. And we are fortunate to have RJ Ripper as our guide/mechanic to keep us inspired with his mad skills and exhuberant spirit. He is presently the 6 time National Downhill Champion in Nepal and will hopefully be able to compete on the global circuit in the near future. Both these gentlemen have made our trip one of the most outstanding adventures I could have asked for. Namaste!
A big thank you to the H+I team in Nepal! RJ, Nishma and Ram went above and beyond to make our trip a memorable one. The highlight of this adventure really is the Mustang Valley and it was fantastic to be able to enjoy it whilst somebody else took care of the admin associated with it from the entry permits to looking after the bikes at the end of a long day riding. Additionally, in the weeks before the trip, Mandil and Catherine, needed to make some last-minute changes to the itinerary (due to the state of the Nepali airline industry) and they did so in a timely fashion, making difficult decisions and communicating early and often with us guests. Thank you H+I for a memorable experience! Hopefully we can join you again sometime soon in the future!

To mountain bike in Nepal is on most riders’ bucket lists and there's a reason why. It is home to eight of the world's ten highest mountains; the landscapes are diverse and the views staggering. It is the birthplace of Buddhism and boasts a rich cultural diversity and wonderful people. As a developing country Nepal can be a challenging place to travel in, we've worked diligently over the years to offer the very best Nepal mountain bike trip available. Our guides and support staff are the best; they are hand picked and professional. Our routes have been carefully chosen; we ride as much singletrack as possible and spend three full days on the Annapurna circuit. We avoid long slogs up dusty roads and instead shuttle you so that you can save your energy for the fun stuff. From the moment that you touch down in Kathmandu you'll be transported on an unforgettable mountain bike adventure, a true trip of a lifetime.

*Minimum group size four riders, maximum group size 10 riders.

A current full-suspension enduro bike with 150-160mm travel that’s capable up & down is suggested, or a smaller 130-140mm travel bike would also work on this trip.

Eye protection and knee pads that you can comfortably pedal in are highly recommended. Helmets are mandatory when on your bike. A 20L backpack is recommended.

ACTIVITY LEVEL

The minimum technical ability required for Nepal is Intermediate+. This trip is suitable if you have been riding consistently for three to four years and are confident on most types of singletrack and conditions. This trip is a Level 3/6 for fitness. The altitude adjustment, dry and exposed landscape (second part of the trip) and accumulation of multiple long days of riding will add up, as it is on all of our trips the fitter you are, the more fun you’ll have.

The first three days in the Kathmandu Valley are on lower altitude hiking trails that link villages with compact dirt and roots, narrow sections through rice fields, some eroded ruts, some short steep and slippery sections. In the big mountains rides are a mix of singletrack and doubletrack/dirt roads in open landscapes on dry surfaces with loose and fixed rock. Highest point is 4,577m/15,016ft, most rides take place between 2,000m/7,000ft and 3,000m/10,000ft or lower. There are many suspension bridges that can be ridden or walked.

LODGING AND CUISINE

We specifically use better accommodation than our competitors on this trip. We will be staying in comfortable hotels and guest-houses that are unique, well-located, simple at times and always memorable. You’ll always have a private bathroom and a hot shower. The food is better than most might imagine, enjoying local fare in the smaller communities, while Kathmandu has the choices one might get at home. Please let us know if you have any dietary requests as we always do our best to accommodate everyone.

Since we’ll be travelling amongst very big mountains and in a wide va- riety of climatic regions, the weather changes can be dramatic and we need to be prepared for everything that Mother Nature can send our way. Kathmandu is quite warm (t-shirt and shorts for riding) while Kag- beni is cold at night (bennie and light down jacket at night). We’ll send you a detailed list of what to bring, and we always send you a link to the weather forecast just before you depart.

YOUR SAFETY

Our trips take place in remote regions with limited evacuation options available. Our guides have basic first aid training, if a serious injury is suspected they will call helicopter search and rescue at the cost of the participant. Personal medical travel insurance is mandatory for all riders. If you choose to participate in our trips it is up to you to ride well within your limits, to ride conservatively, to walk sections if needed and to be safe as mountain biking is a dangerous sport. There are always risks and hazards on all trails that we ride. It is your responsibility to inspect your bike or rental bike daily and keep it in excellent condition. Helmets are mandatory and alcohol and drugs are not permitted while riding your bike.

THE NEXT STEPS

Please read and understand our Terms and Conditions and our Waiver. Then, email or call us to make sure that your desired departure is confirmed and there’s still space available. We’ll then send you a short Rider Questionnaire to learn about your riding experience and ensure that you are suitable for the trip. The last step is to complete our secure online Registration Form and pay your 25% deposit, and we’ll send you detailed Trip Preparation Guide that includes steps on preparing for your adventure.

A Travel Protection Plan protects your travel investment, your belongings, and most importantly, you. We strongly advise travelers to enroll in a Travel Protection Plan in case an unexpected event causes you to cancel or leave your trip. Please review Big Mountain Bike Adventures’ Cancellation Policy:

A Travel Protection Plan should be purchased once a deposit or any payment is made for a trip. Insurance must provide coverage for personal accident, death, emergency remote evacuation including helicopter evacuation, medical expenses and emergency repatriation. We advise travellers to confirm that it covers trip cancellation, curtailment, personal liability and loss of luggage and personal effects. You will be asked for proof of insurance in lead up to your trip; you will not be able to join the trip without it. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance coverage, Big Mountain will not be liable for any losses howsoever arising, in respect to insurance coverage that would have otherwise have been available.

Nepal mountain bike tours

Nepal was once a forbidden kingdom, hidden from the world, all her mysteries and secrets kept inside her mystical landlocked boarders. In the 1950’s when the curtain fell and her borders opened to a rapidly changing world looking for adventure and adrenaline, intrepid travelers thronged here by the thousands to the trek in the lap of the mighty Himalaya’s, home to eight of world’s ten highest mountains. They came to lose themselves in the mystery of the fabled Shangri-La… and perhaps a cloud of Ganja. As the years went by many people only saw Nepal as a place to trek or as an abode of the hippy, but as the twenty-first century dawned so did the age of adventure tourism.

To many it became apparent that the Jaw Dropping Mountains of the Himalaya boasted so much more than trudging one foot in front of the other. Now, Mountain biking has become a key part of our life as in terms of sport, for health benefits and for some of us it is more of a lifestyle.

Our Lead Guide/Founder, Bimal Gurung is an avid mountain biker and a passionate musician, hails originally from Pokhara, resides in Lalitpur, Nepal. He is the first mountain biker ever to riding through Dolpa Region, he rode through Beni-Dhorpatan-Rukum-Lower Dolpa-Upper Dolpa-Mustang in 21 days.

He has ridden and operate mountain bike trips to most of the existing high mountain trails than any other riders or tour agencies in the Himalayas of Nepal, including Manaslu Circuit, Tsum Valley, Tilicho Lake, Mesokanto pass, Upper Mustang, Annapurna Circuit and the Dolpa Region… He is a frequent visitor in Europe to several countries for the love and learning about mountain biking. He has ridden the trails in the Alps in Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, and mountain bike parks in the Czech Republic and as well in Norway. He’s been active in racing in Asian Enduro Series, International Chiang Mai Enduro as part of Asian Enduro Series of Thailand segment and in in Nagarkot, Nepal for last 4 years.

Happy Riders

Nosotros hicimos un viaje de tres semanas con Bimal Gurung de HimalayanDirt. Concretamente recorrimos los treckings del Manaslu y del Annapurna con nuestras MTB. Quedamos muy satisfechos por la experiencia y los servicios ofrecidos por la agencia. Desde el primer momento en que contactamos con Bimal, nos ofreció información clara y precisa, y muy buen asesoramiento sobre el terreno y las rutas. También nos dio muchas facilidades en la preparación de nuestro viaje, estando siempre muy receptivo a las ideas que teníamos. Una vez en Nepal el viaje fue fantástico. Bimal es un gran conocedor de su país ademas de un estupendo ciclista. Todo los preparativos estuvieron muy bien organizados y los imprevistos (normales en este tipo de viajes) fueron solucionados con eficacia. En definitiva, nuestro viaje fue una experiencia genial y recomendamos esta agencia al 100%.

Med Norsk Nepaleseren  Bimal Gurung  fra himalayandirt , Nepal, som lokal guide, sykkelekspert, veiviser, høydeekspert, tolk, historiker mm ble turen vår helt konge, Bimal er helt fra forberedelsene hjemme i Norge, med sykkelvalg, med anbefalinger av hva man bør ha med på reisen til Nepal, under turen og i ettertid. Bimal var helt avgjørende for opplevelsen i Nepal.  Fra storslått mottagelse på flyplassen i Katmandu, opplevelsen av utelivet i Katmandu og på hele Annapurna Circuit.

Takk til Bimal Gurung for en uforglemmelig eventyrtur i Nepal…”

We were three Czechs for a mountain bike adventure in Annapurna circuit with Tilicho lake in a so called off-season, Monsoon! and that was my first time in Asia. Even it was hot and raining on the lower parts but in the mountains it was dry and perfect weather for riding. We experienced mountains, visited historical heritage sites and cities and its’ night life in pokhara and Kathmandu, we had amazing three weeks in Nepal…”

“I’ve been living and riding in Asia for a long time now and my experience in Nepal was simply far different from what I had and what anyone can possibly have out there! I like to ride super trails, and I got what I was looking for, I did Mesokanto Pass with Tilicho lake…”

Mountain Biking Tour of Mustang Overview

A 10-day mountain biking tour to Mustang allows you to explore the natural fantasies of Nepal around Pokhara and Jomsom, Muktinath, via a biking adventure.

Nepal is a country stacked with many natural sites, and mountain biking is a nature sport that introduces you to these different areas. Exploring people, their day-to-day lives, roads, ravines, fantastic mountain views, etc. against the backdrop of beautiful scenery is one of the most fruitful trips in Nepal one can ever have.

The mountain biking tour of Mustang starts from the urban town of Pokhara and traverses several landscapes, including Jomsom and Kagbeni, then to quaint and pristine sites like Muktinath, Tukuche, Tatopani, and Beni.

Pokhara is a picturesque city that sits in the lap of the Himalayas. The lush hills, verdant forests, and pristine environment are the attractions of the valley. The mountains around the city have some incredible viewpoints that offer magnificent views of the mountains. Among them, Sarangkot is a stunning viewpoint that lies just above the town and offers some panoramic views of mountains in the Annapurna range.

And Jomsom, which lies north of Pokhara, uncovers Nepal’s astounding decent variety. The profound valleys and high mountains grasp a broad scope of people, groups, and territory, from subtropical wilderness to a top-dry scene at the one end of the Annapurna Circuit trail . It’s worth visiting on a mountain bike.

Mustang Mountain Biking Trail (Kathmandu–Pokhara–Jomsom)

A sightseeing trip to Kathmandu is what the mountain biking holiday in Nepal begins with. The city exhibits the rich culture, tradition, and religion of the people. Everyone would love to explore the grand palaces, temples, stupas, and monasteries.

During the mountain bike tour in Kathmandu, we visit the UNESCO-listed heritage sites , including Kathmandu Durbar Square , Swayambhunath Stupa , Pashupatinath Temple , and Boudhanath Stupa . The sightseeing tour covers the ancient history of Nepal, along with some insights into Hinduism and Buddhism.

From Kathmandu, we take a drive along scenic rural terrain along the Trishuli River to Pokhara city, the center of Nepal’s tourism. As soon as we reach downtown, we will have an excursion around the lakeside and bless our eyes with the magnificent views of Mt. Machhapuchhre. The vibrancy of the city and the pristine air make the trip very appealing. Besides the late-night wonder, live music, and excellent food, one can never get enough of Pokhara.

As we proceed with the Mustang Mountain Biking Tour Package , we take a scenic flight to Jomsom. In just 25–30 minutes, we will land at the airport in Jomsom.

Jomsom differs from Pokhara in terms of terrain and landscape. The area is dry and secluded. As a biker, the tough tracks of the place will immediately catch your eye.

Moving forward with our veritable Mustang mountain biking tour , we assemble our gear and ride through the streets of Jomsom. We follow a pedaling trail along the Kaligandaki gorge, enjoying the scenic views of mountains and rocky terrain and experiencing authentic Tibetan culture.

A mountain bike ride to Muktinath ( 3710 m) and back

Further, the mountain biking tour in Mustang will get more exciting and adventurous. The trail is tough and rocky, but biking is fun if the path is not challenging.

Admiring the awe-inspiring views of mountains in the desert-like rocky terrain, we make our way up to Muktinath . There is a famous and holy temple of Lord Vishnu in Muktinath. The site is promising for both Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims and is also famous for its religious significance and the picturesque views of the mountains.

After a beautiful ride to Muktinath, we drop the trail and ride through some fantastic landscapes. We pass beautiful villages like Marpha and make our way to Tukuche. It’s an incredible experience to ride along one of the best mountain biking trails in the world and also to treat yourself to the warm hospitality of local people in those areas’ authentic communities.

While Marpha is famous for its apple orchard and local brandy, Thakali (a popular Nepali cuisine ) is the memory of Tukuche. Further, we continue our mountain biking tour in Mustang with a drive to Tatopani and then to Beni. At Tatopani, you can enjoy a hot water bath in the natural hot water springs. You can relax and soothe your tired nerves with a hot water bath. It acts as an ailment for your tiresome mountain biking tour in Nepal.

At Beni, we will pick you up in a vehicle. The vehicle will drive us to Pokhara.

End the Mustang Biking Tour in Sarangkot.

From Pokhara, we drive up to Sarangkot, an excellent vantage point just above Pokhara city. At Sarangkot, we can enjoy the sunrise and sunset views amidst the mountains in the Annapurna range. After a long, tiring day, a visit to Sarangkot will improve your mood and make you feel peaceful.

If interested, you can also enjoy sightseeing around Pokhara after the biking tour. There are many things to do such as visit Lakeside, David Falls, Gupteshwor Temple, the International Mountaineering Museum, the White Peace Pagoda, Begnas Lake, etc.

So, are you ready for a fantastic mountain bike ride around Mustang ?

The stunning landscapes and mountains are ready to welcome you with their natural splendor. The Nepalese people’s friendly gestures, great hospitality, and homely behavior will add to your memory of a mountain biking tour in Nepal.

Would you prefer trekking instead of a mountain bike ride in the Mustang?

We also have several travel packages to the region, such as the Upper Mustang Trek , the Upper Mustang Jeep Tour , the Jomsom Muktinath Trek , and the Tiji Festival Trek .

March to May and September to November is the perfect time to explore Nepal’s fantasies and the Nepalese mountains in the Annapurna region. The views are unlimited; the weather is dry and accurate during this time.

Monsoon is a big no for this tour because the mountain biking trails get muddy and slippery because of excessive rain.

Also, winter is impossible for mountain biking as the path is full of snow.

Bike tour in himalayas

mtb tour himalaya

What is a Bike Tour in Himalayan Mountains?

A bike or hike in the  mountains of Nepal  is not a wilderness experience. It is rather a cultural and nature experience. It is a journey through various ethnic cultures, religion and geographical diversity of this Himalayan kingdom. There are rich varieties of flora and fauna within a limited area and horizontal distance of 70 km from the lowest elevation of 150 meters to 8848m above sea level. The hills are dotted by numerous villages, which are linked by footpath. You use these networks of footpath made by local people to visit several destinations.

The people in the villages are friendly and hospitable.  This is the nature of our people and smiling faces and amicability is what you will find in the villages. Depending upon the season you come across local people in their distinctive ethnic dress and cultural festivals. On major trade route like in Annapurna area you are likely to meet traders from Tibet with caravan of mules, porters carrying construction materials and soldiers at certain junction along the route.  The awe-inspiring Himalayan peaks will always remain with you giving fresh air and nostalgic feeling. You will be amazed to find a great contrast about hard life in the mountains and, happy and smiling face of the people. A bike tour in himalayas of Nepal always gives you time to reflect and think about your own lifestyle and may even change the way you look at life.

You will be riding on an absolutely beautiful terrain. Mountain biking in Nepal is more than pristine countryside and wilderness. You will be doing it physically amidst the exotic culture. Experience bikers say that “ mountain biking in Nepal is about riding on off-road trails,  great climbs, exhilarating and within that context it is about being able to arrive in an unexpected festivals” . You come across trails with goats, cows, and buffaloes grazing in the fields, farmers carrying plough and yaks up in the mountains

A SHORT BIKING TOUR

A short biking tour in the mountains can be a day trip on the ridge or a maximum of 7 days biking up and down the hills get a closer view of the spectacular Himalayan range that tends to extend wherever you go. Close view of the mighty Himalayan peaks is the highlight of your biking tour in Nepal. Bike or walk in the mountains is always up to the ridge and down the valley. Except while biking and walking through river valleys and along the ridge most of the day is spent biking several up and down terrain. A day bike ride in the mountains is usually a steep 3-4 hours ride and another 3-5 hours downhill. Riding pace is easy and gradual.

How high you go

Of course the mountains in Nepal are very high compared to other parts of the world. However, a day bike ride is never more than 2000 meter unless you take a flight o remote place, like Everest region, high among the Himalayas. There you will be at an altitude of 3000 meters. A bike tour of 7 days would not exceed 4000 meters.

In the scale of 1 to 4, that is Easy, Moderate, Hard, Strenuous, short rides in Nepal falls under 1 and 2 categories. Any physically fit person would be able to take this trip. Most bike tour around Kathmandu valley falls into this category. However, a long ride on the Tibetan plateau is strenuous. Though the terrain on the roof of the world is flat yet tough because of the high elevation and several passes above 5000 meters riding your mountain bike is taxing.

When to take a short bike tour

Except From July to September, all seasons are good on the foothills of the Annapurna and around the rim of Kathmandu valley. You can take any number of days to ride around the rim of Kathmandu valley. You can take any number of days to ride in the rim of  Kathmandu valley . If priority is the question, Autumn comes first, second is Spring. Winter is cold, and ice in the mountains makes it dangerous and slippery. Statistics show that Autumn season has more tourists than in Spring and Winter respectively. But to ride around Kathmandu and Pokhara valley is good all season. In case of Tibet, it is best in summer-monsoon season, in July and September, which falls under the rain shadow area.

Road Condition:

Mostly you will be biking on the dusty and unpaved jeep road. The trails are uneven; therefore, it is technical biking trail. You travel on pitched road on some section of the programs. In Kathmandu valley you will be biking on cross-country trails. It has been said the foothill and the valley rim is the perfect size and height for challenging rides.

Bike Itinerary:

The itinerary is suggested guideline only. It may change due to weather, physical condition and other unforeseen circumstances that are beyond our control.

TRAVELLING IN TIBET

Trip to Tibet is a fantastic and special experience. It is adventurous. It is ancient Tibet and modern China in the process of blending together. Tibet is enchanting. It is one of the most remote parts of the world. Most of Tibet, including Lhasa, is an elevation of more than 3658 meters (12000 ft). The sight of pilgrims prostrating themselves in front of Jhokang must be seen to be comprehended. Tibetans from remote parts of the country make their pilgrimage to Lhasa. It is pilgrimage of their lifetime. As you go around Jokhang temple, Lhasa’s cathedral, you come across with pilgrims prostrating themselves, tall Khampas with red braids in their hair, Chinese tourists, and traders selling goods that you cannot imagine.

The flight over the Himalaya makes spectacular crossing rarely seen anywhere in the world. The lush green colour in Nepal slowly fades away, and arid and dull grey plateau appears which in turns into blue sky as you land at Lhasa. The highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest, and another 8000-meter peak of Mt. Makalu dominates the breathtaking view.

The distance in Tibet is very wide, and the road is rough and dusty. So schedules are often disrupted by mechanical problems, floods, and landslides. To tackle the problems that arise out of these unforeseen circumstances, you will certainly need high spirit of adventure and patience. In fact your journey to Tibet would be a rewarding and unforgettable experience like the one Tibetan pilgrims get once they are in Lhasa.

The trip to Tibet is in high altitude region. The road is at an elevation above 3600 meters (12000 ft ) above sea level most of the time and goes as high as 5300 meters if you go to base camp of Everest or Kailash in a short period. In case of altitude problem with a member of the group it is always priority of the group to attend the sick person for his/her safety. There are medical facilities at Zangmu, Xigar, Xigaze, and Lhasa but not in other places. Medical facilities are limited, and possibility of medical evacuation is negligible.

WHAT BIKING IS LIKE IN NEPAL & TIBET

Life on the bike:  You may have lunch or tea before you start to bike; it depends upon when you arrive at the bike start point. On a long bike tour, your duffel baggage and camping equipment will be loaded on a support vehicle to carry. The support vehicle carries food and all necessary equipment.

Bike tour around the rim of Kathmandu valley and in places where lodging facilities are available you will eat and sleep in the best available lodges. Usually, a packed lunch is provided during your bike in the daytime. For a group size of up to 10 members a guide is assigned. Above ten members two guides accompany the group. The guide will ensure that you are on right trail.

After you arrive at the camp, tea will be served. Drink a lot of fluid. Dinner will be served around 6 p.m. After dinner usually most bikers retire. Candles are provided in the tent and lodges wherever electricity is not available. Make sure to extinguish the candle before you go to sleep or go out of the tent.

The usual pattern is to wake up at 6am, pack your duffel bag and have breakfast at 6.30am. By 7am everyone is ready to start biking. When weather is cold and the day is short this schedule may be delayed. Your guide will inform you about this.

Lunch stop depends upon a suitable spot. In camping arrangement it depends upon availability of water. Usually you will stop for lunch around 11am. Meals are served in the open.

In average you will be biking about 7 to 8 hours a day. If you are at a higher elevation you will be doing less. It is important to bike slowly and steadily. Because of mountain terrain which is up and down it is difficult to measure distance covered in each day. Usually you will be biking about 15 to 20 km a day. Your day to day schedule is arranged in such a way that you can easily cover the distance without taxing your body. Anyone in good health and sound physical condition can complete any bike tour that we organize. But you should be prepared to steep bike hills.

What you should know?

In the event of illness or injury, either the guide will arrange to send someone for assistance or transport the ill person to a nearest hospital, airstrip, or road head for evacuation to Kathmandu. The tour leader has complete authority and responsibility in such a situation. It is up to the individual member to decide whether his assistance is required or continue the journey depending upon the situation. The only guideline in such condition is common sense.

High Altitude Sickness

If you have not experienced walking in high altitude region before you may feel uncomfortable with headache, nausea, and lethargy. Even if you have previous experience it is not a guarantee that you are immune. Even if you are in good physical shape you should slow down your walking pace as you trek above 4000 meters. Experience and statistics have shown that this measure has reduced the likelihood of getting altitude sickness. This is neither assurance nor a guarantee but caution to ask you to be prepared emotionally. In case you get altitude sickness you should be prepared to retreat to lower camp.

Most fatal cases of  altitude sickness  (pulmonary edema) resulted from people pushing themselves beyond their capabilities when they were severally affected by the altitude problem. Usually altitude problem does not occur below 3600 meters, however at least one extra day should be allowed if you have flown directly to that altitude.

Kailash Himalaya programme includes extra days in the high altitude area to allow for proper acclimatisation of your body. Despite this some people still are affected by high altitude sickness.

We strongly recommend that you be insured against accident, emergency evacuation, loss of or damage to baggage and personal effect, and trip cancellation due to personal or family health/illness, etc.

Do not take valuable and travellers check on the trip. Leave it behind at the safe deposit box. It is available in most hotels.

You need money for bottled mineral water, soft drink, beer etc and tips to porters and trip staffs. In a short tour Nepalese rupees worth US$50 to $100 is sufficient, and on longer trip $150 to $200 in rupees of the smaller denomination would be alright unless you want to buy some souvenirs.

It is one of the major sources of stomach problem. While in Kathmandu you have choice to drink bottled mineral water but on the bike tour, you should bring small bottle of iodine crystal to treat your drinking water. Or check with your chemist the best method to treat water. At camp or lodge you will have plenty of tea or coffee to supplement your water requirement, this is safe. Generally water provided in the hotels is safe. But we suggest you  not to drink  water from the tap and pitcher kept in your bedroom. Foods in the camping tour are treated with potassium permanganate (pink water), and water is boiled.

We advise you should drink only boiled water and eat freshly cooked food. Maintain basic hygiene while eating food. Do not get nervous if you get mild diarrhoea. Because of change in diet your system takes time to adapt.

This great variety of topography of the country creates diversity of weather as well as climate. The country experience tropical, mesothermal, microthermal, taiga and tundra types of climate.

The seasonal wind “Monsoon” is caused by the differential heating between land and sea. Monsoon rain normally arrives over eastern Nepal during the first week of Jun. 60 to 80 per cent of rainfall falls during the monsoon season (June to Sept).

In winter the major weather affecting, is the “Western Disturbances”. Due to this, northwestern part of the country receives rainfall greater than that of the east. At higher altitudes, most of the precipitation falls in the form of snow.

Note: Above average temperature is for guideline only.

Autumn :  Monsoon rain normally ends by middle of September. Sometimes it drags on to first week of October. The weather in October and November is cold and dry. The sky is clear, and views of the mountain are fantastic. Major festivals happen during this season. In the beginning or middle of November weather changes with snowfall in the mountain above 2500 meter and rain in the lower region; this last for a week only and it improves. The temperature in later part of November much colder than in October. This sort of weather continues until middle of December.

Spring :  It is the time when wildflowers are in full bloom. Rhododendron of varieties of colours covers forest on the mountain slopes. Early March is cold with lots of snow on higher elevation above 4000 meters; there would be no snow on lower elevation. Morning and evening are clear with blue sky. Daytime is cloudy. As the season approaches end of April the weather becomes warmer and hot as it gets into May.

View of the Himalayan range is visible though it is cloudy during the day. This condition remains until end of June. Rain starts pouring from the beginning of July and remain until middle of September.

Travel Insurance:

Travel insurance is important before traveling to a new place especially when you are traveling for adventure. Travel insurance covers risks such as loss of personal belongings, and any unexpected expenses. Travel insurance also covers sudden medical emergencies such as accidents. It also covers high-altitude emergency evacuation in case of trekking. Travel insurance is not compulsory but highly recommended.

Medical Emergency:

If you face any serious medical emergency during your Mountain Biking tour/trip you will immediately evacuate the place through Helicopter Rescue which the traveler’s insurance company will cover. While trekking to the highlands of Nepal you may face minor health issues such as scratches, headaches, etc. For such a situation, your guide carries a well-equipped first aid kit, ensuring nothing happens to you.

High-Altitude Sickness:

During the Upper Mustang Mountain Biking Tour, you will walk through gorgeous valleys, traditional villages, and thrilling highlands above 3,000m elevation. Altitude sickness is unpredictable; it can happen to anyone despite being physically and mentally fit. As you gain altitude, the chances of getting altitude sickness also slightly increase. To avoid getting altitude sickness you should drink 5-6 lt water per/day and food with high carbohydrates. Walking slowly and acclimatizing decreases the chances of getting altitude sickness. Focus on your breathing and maintain your walking pace.

Packing List Suggestions:

Having a good backpack and necessary gear makes trekking easier. It becomes more important if you are trekking at higher elevations. If you are wondering about what to pack for trekking to the Annapurna region, then you can check our complete guide on the Nepal Trekking Gear Checklist . While making a backpack, it is important to include clothing, essential items, and a first aid kit. In difficult times, a good backpack can be life-saving.

Do’s and Don’t:

Select the ideal time to travel. 

Select a reputed trekking/ travel organization. 

Training and getting ready for any kind of situation are necessary.

Efficient packing is the key. ( Nepal trekking gear checklist )

Carry all the necessary paperwork (ACAP, Restricted area permit , and TIM card).

Maintaining body hydration is important while traveling to high elevations.

Having the proper personal gear makes your journey more enjoyable.

Ask for permission before taking pictures and videos of the locals. 

Respect the culture and people of the area.

Travel for experience and not for the sake of traveling.

Don’t litter, put trash in its place.

Frequently Asked Questions

The tour starts in Kathmandu, Nepal, but the Upper Mustang Mountain Biking Tour actually begins from Jomsom. You will begin your journey by taking a flight until Jomsom. From there, you will have the convenience of driving to your destination. Once you reach Jomsom, you will switch to mountain bikes and continue your journey to Upper Mustang.

The Tour in Nepal is known for its challenging mountain biking routes, featuring mostly rough and rugged roads. To participate in the Upper Mustang Mountain Biking Tour, it is essential to have prior experience riding mountain bikes on rough and off-road trails. This is because the majority of the roads on this tour are rugged and present challenging conditions.

The tour is renowned for its challenging terrain, as it traverses the rugged high mountain desert. The participants in this activity will be riding mountain bikes on a challenging trail that is rough and rugged. They will be covering distances that vary from 12 to 25 kilometers per day. To successfully complete the Upper Mustang Mountain Biking Tour, it is necessary to engage in cycling activities for a duration of 4 to 8 hours per day.

During your stay in Kathmandu and Pokhara, you will be accommodated in highly comfortable hotels situated in convenient locations near the markets. During your tour of the upper mountain, there are limited options available as the upper region is quite remote. However, you will have the opportunity to spend your nights at comfortable local lodges and eat at houses run by the locals. This will provide you with the opportunity to experience the minimalist lifestyle of the area, offering basic amenities such as comfortable bedding, delicious food, and clean washrooms.

For your specific needs, we recommend using mountain bikes that are designed for rough and offbeat trails. These bikes are equipped with full suspension to provide optimal comfort and control while riding. The professional bikes provided are specifically designed to offer a hassle-free experience during your tour in the Upper Mustang region.

The Upper Mustang mountain biking tour is an exciting adventure that will take you to rugged and thrilling locations. To navigate the challenging terrain, it is recommended to use bikes specifically designed for rough roads. Traveling to these places with regular bikes can significantly increase the risk of damaging the bikes and sustaining severe injuries.

The upper Mustang region is situated at an altitude exceeding 3000m above sea level. During the trek, there is a potential risk of experiencing high altitude sickness. Altitude sickness becomes more likely above 2500m, but by taking necessary precautions, you can ensure a safe and enjoyable trip to Upper Mustang.

There are a few things you need to keep in mind while traveling to the highlands. The Upper Mustang is located at a high elevation, so it's important to maintain a steady pace, drink plenty of water to avoid altitude sickness, and be prepared for the challenges posed by the rough trail. One must be cautious of loose stones as they may be a danger when traveling on off-road terrain.

Upper Mustang Mountain Biking Tour

Upper Mustang Mountain Biking with Himalayan Single Track

A Journey into the Himalayan Wilderness to the Forbidden Kingdom of Lo Mantang, Upper Mustang.

Mountain Bike Upper Mustang is fast becoming one of the most popular cycling destinations in Nepal. It’s not just about the challenging ascents and endless single track descents, it’s about a journey of discovery of the nomadic horse culture, breathtaking scenery and friendly heart-warming people that inhabit the region. If you love both culture and mountain biking, a particularly good time to go is in May to coincide with the Tiji Festival.

Venture into a land where Nomads herd yaks in the high pastures, ponies carry your luggage, rosy cheeked locals toil the arid soil to earn a living, where Tibetan culture is almost untouched by civilization and add to this some of the BEST and most Challenging mountain biking terrain in the world and you have an unforgettable journey.

Each Upper Mustang Trip is guided by one of our experienced guides and supported by local Porters, Drivers and Horsemen which means some of the income goes directly into the local communities. Relying on our local support team means we also get up to date trail and weather condition information. Our intimate local knowledge means we can take you to trails others do not travel and you can immerse yourself in local culture and hospitality. We pride ourselves on our local connections which means we can deliver to you a safe and unforgeable trip into the heart and soul of the Mustang Region.

For most of our guides, this is our favorite ride in Nepal, especially now we have added in new single tracks out in the remote regions of Yara, Luri Ghumpa and Tangye. Put simply this trip showcases the very best Mountain Biking that the Himalaya has to offer!

We also offer an exciting Enduro trip in this region. Check it out – Kingdom of Enduro.

A Journey of mystical cities, culture and incredible riding

Trips Highlights

  • Exploring the Lost Kingdom of Lo
  • The Stunning Panoramas along the way
  • Exploring the Unquie Culture of the Region
  • Journeying through the Deepest Gorge in the World
  • Discovering anceint caves and Monasteries

Upon your arrival in Nepal, a member of our team will meet you at the Airport and transfer you to the Hotel. We have a meet and greet with the Guide team for a trip briefing and gear check. In the evening we will go our for some traditional Nepalese food and explore Thamel.

Today we drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The road is scenic and travels along the river valley. The drive takes us 6 to 7 hours and we stop along the way for lunch. Take some time to stretch your legs once we arrive in Pokhara with a nice walk around the scenic lakeside.

Wake up for sunrise and hopefully catch a glimpse of the mountains before we head to the airport. It’s about a 22 min flight to Jomsom, above the Pokhara valley and deep into the heart of the Himalaya, take a peek out of the window for fantastic views of Dhaulagiri and beyond. The flight is simply breathtaking as the plane’s wing tip almost touches the snow capped peaks, fly right between the Himalayan giants and you feel your adventure has really begun as the small plane banks left and touches down in Jomsom. In Jomsom, we have breakfast and spend some time getting the bikes ready for the journey. Enjoy an easy acclimatization ride of 14 km to the beautiful Tibetan village of Kagbeni. Along the way, we can make a side trip to the isolated village of Phlayk across the river. The road is mostly flat and traces the Kaligandaki River right up to the boundary of Upper Mustang. Stay overnight in Kagbeni and explore this authentic village and its many alleyways and old buildings.

Today we enter the restricted region of Upper Mustang. We drive up to Muktinath. From here it’s an uphill stretch through Chhyonggur and up to the Gyu La Pass at 4077 meters and is 80% rideable. Here there are panoramic views of the snow capped mountains. After a short section of steep downhill we follow an undulating ridge trail down to Tetang at 3040 meters, more than a 1000 meter descent on superb single track. Pass an ancient Mani Wall and cycle on down to Chhuksang. From here there is a slight climb and river crossing to reach Chele. Chele is nestled on the hillside and has nice views back down the valley we came from.

A  hard day of riding, leaving behind the river bed we climb into the hills. Four passes lay between us and Ghami, so yeah there will be a few ups and downs today as we cross Nyila La at 4010 meters, Dajori La 3735 meters, Bhena La 3860 meters and finally Yamda La at 3860 meters. Nyila is one of the most scenic passes on the trip with stunning views of the entire Mustang Region and the Annapurna and Nilgiri Mountain Ranges. After the pass we head down a secret trail, known only to our guides that takes us to the Ghami where we will stop for the night. Ghami is one of the most beautiful villages, situated on the river side with fertile land ripe for growing Phapar (A local Wheat). Nearby the village is an old Monastery that you can visit as well as the local hospital which is supported with aid from Japan.

meters, there is some really nice single-track downhill riding along a little-known trail used by local people and their livestock. . The ride is a welcome change from the days of climbing and crossing passes. The scenery opens up and there are fields of mustard and barley in the right season which makes for lush pockets of greenery and grazing Yaks. It is also one of the most scenic days with the ever-changing colors of the landscape from yellow and browns to reds, grays and blues as the sun moves across the Himalayan sky. Charang is a nice village with a really beautiful 400 year old Gulpa Sect Monastery filled with friendly Monks who like to play football. The Monastery is also home to the oldest library in the region of Lo. Charang is a great village to hang out in and snap some photos.

From Charang we have to cross Lo La Pass at 3810 meters, just before Lo- Manthang. This pass is also known as “Windy Pass” and from here you can view the walled city of Lo-Manthang, your first tantalizing view of this kingdom lost in time and your penultimate destination. In June and July, the time when the crops are almost ready to harvest makes for the most dramatic scenery. The barren brown landscape is scattered with fields of vibrant green and gold rolling with the wind under the vivid blue sky of the Himalayas, a truly memorable scene. The ride is easy if a bit of a long climb, about 25 km total riding distance. You will enjoy the open jeep track trail and should arrive in Lo-Manthang by lunchtime. Lo-Manthang is perhaps one of the most interesting places in the Himalayas and a couple of days spent here sightseeing is well worth it. Visit the Royal Palace where you have the privilege of having tea or perhaps dinner with the King of Lo himself, what an experience! In the afternoon there are three interesting Monasteries to visit, one of them is over 900 years old and displays some of the most beautiful Thangka paintings found in Nepal. The intricate details and vivid colors of these paintings is a stark contrast to the wide-open spaces of the region.

If you are looking for more single tracks and a bit more of a challenge, there is a back way into Lo Manthang as well, up and over a small pass, this is a nice alternative.

Today we ride up to Garphu. Follow the upper reaches of the Kali Gandaki River, crossing over several of its tributaries. Here you will find Ghom, a cave tunneling into the mountainside which is the historical site of a Monastery and the cave of one thousand windows. The beautiful scenery and isolated Tibetan culture make this day trip a worthy experience. The way back from Ghom is a beautiful single track through traditional villages. This truly is a place to lose yourself in history, rustic architecture and mind-blowing landscapes, one could easily roll back in time 100 years or more here.

Today there is a super nice single track with mountain views and really steep and sandy single tracks. The ride takes us uphill through a canyon to Yara where we will have lunch. After lunch we ride loop out to Luri Ghumba and then return to Yara. The round trip is 50% uphill and 50% down, around 2 hours return, but Luri Ghumba is worth a visit, this tiny Monastery is nestled high into the cliff face. This is a challenging route for good riders with skill in loose trails with some exposure.

The starts with some really nice single track and beautiful landscape. There is a long climb of about an hour and a half after crossing the river where you might have to push some. We finish our day as we roll into Tangbe, which is a simple and remote village. Tangbe is a tiny village with very simple accommodation. You can enjoy the feeling of being really remote and isolated.

To start the day we have to push and carry for about 2 hours 3 hours  1000m uphill to Pha totally pushing or carrying, followed by 2 to 3  hours of single track which undulates along the ridge line, before an EPIC descent down to Chhuksang. The scenery on this day is also Epic. It’s a ridgeline descent, with some short climbs, and amazing views. Some of the best views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri can be had on this day. Once we reach Chhuksang, we take a jeep to Muktinath.

This valley that we will be riding today snakes between the Nilgiri and Dhauligiri Mountains making it the deepest gorge in the world. From Muktinath we head to Lubra Pass and an alternative Lubra Valley Trail, there are many trail options here and they are well ridden, so the surface is hardpack and fun. Make sure you take time to enjoy the views. We head to Dhumba Lake and cycle along the valley walls to Marphai. This region is the home of Apples and Apple Brandy. Kick off your biking shoes and enjoy a cold beer or warm Apple Brandy. If we have time we can also cycle the Jomsom Tower trail which is super fun. We stay overnight in Marpha.

A fun day of fast downhill, all the way through Tatopani and on the Ghaleshowr where our ride ends. We meet the jeep and drive to Pokhara.

Today we transfer you to the Pokhara airport for the short 23min flight to Kathmandu. Take some time for last-minute shopping or exploring this vibrant city.

Today we say farewell and transfer from the hotel to the airport for your outbound flight.

"We did the annapurna circuit with Ananpurna MTB Adventures in October and that was an adventure of our lifetime. We were well taken of and guided by Sishir who has been in the region for more than a year. The itinerary is well designed with every day 4-5 hours of ride everyday. Acclimatization was key to the smooth final push over the Thorung Pass, and Shishir made the process very enjoyable. Some of the trekking trails were unavailable when we were there, but the roads were surprisingly challenging. Riding was much better after we crested the Pass and required expert level skills to fully enjoy."
