This has to be one of the best mountain biking trips going for all it has to offer & within 12 days. Dropped by plane amidst 7000meter peaks and the historic Annapurna’s, the 1st peak ever climbed in Nepal and Tibet just to the north and some 5000meters descent into Pokhara Valley over 7 days.

We fly you in from Pokhara directly to Jomson at 2720m alt. (for the half-circuit of the Annapurna route) and ride to the edge of the Thorung La pass, at about 5416m alt. Over the next 7 days we take you to holy lakes, razor ridgetop trails, single trail descents over 100’s of meters deep, heart pumping climbs through mystic Mustang border villages and ultimately descend through the jaws of the deepest canyon in the world! Finally you’ll catch a couple of days rest in Pokhara lazing around Phewa Tal Lake to return to reality & have time for this accomplished to sink in, in the luxury of your exclusive Himalayan Residence, The Retreat.

This exceptional trip offers intermediate and above bikers a rare opportunity to hone their skills and test their talents with climbs and downhills that let it all hang out. Monasteries that few would ever chance to pass and villages with local produce the envy of Nepal, like mouth watering apple cider and landscapes unique only to this region as you transit rugged mountain passes and descend shady forest trails to the terraced valleys of lakeside Pokhara.

You’ll pass through small mountain villages en-route and still have time in the bustling historic city of Kathmandu, there is plenty of opportunity to meet the incredibly friendly people of this country and absorb their rich culture all within 15 days and you’ll be delighted with the result.

For those of you who prefer off-road, single-track riding, this is the opportunity to get off the roads and take advantage of one of Nepals most popular treks but by bike! These trails will challenge even the most avid downhiller.

One of the highlights of this Bike Nepal journey is undoubtedly the spine-tingling descents down through the World’s Deepest Gorge of the Kali Gandaki. This continuous descent amidst some of the most famous Himalayan peaks has been described by many as the high point of their mountain biking lives. Read More
