This incredible adventure takes you to some of Nepal's most beautiful and unusual bike roads.

We explore a variety of towns, meet indigenous hill tribes, and take in stunning vistas of gigantic Himalayan peaks such as the Annapurnas and Manaslu. We pass through lowland settlements, dense oak forests, deep gorges, and picturesque isolated hamlets on our way to the Tilicho Lake, one of the highest altitude fresh water lakes in the world.

ITINERARY

Day 01 :Arrival in Kathmandu (Kathmandu).Our airport representative will meet you outside the airport terminal at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, holding a Nepal Mountain Bike signboard. Our private tourist van will then transport you to your chosen accommodation. Overnight stay at the hotel.  

Day 2: Kathmandu's Back Roads and Trails. Join us for a warm-up ride around the Kathmandu Valley's greatest trails; test your bikes and kit to ensure everything is in working order for the road ahead. We will travel roughly 40km at a steady pace in 3 to 4 hours of riding, touring the rural portions of the valley, single trails, and sightseeing at several temples, before returning to Thamel for last-minute lunch.  

Day 3: Vehicle from Kathmandu to Besisahar.We meet for tea at our office early in the morning and then load up the bikes for the 5-hour drive to Besishar. We take a break along the route to soak in the scenery and have some lunch. When we arrive in Besishar, we spend some time exploring the town before meeting our porters and finalizing our travel plans. Overnight stay at the hotel.  

Day 4: Besishar to Tal (760m) ( 1700m) Distance:-37.4km.Today we ride a little over 1000 meters uphill that takes us along the river; it's a lovely stretch of the trip that is completely rideable along the Marsyandi River. Tal has some beautiful landscapes, including steep-sided valleys terraced with farms and tiny communities.Tal is located in a steep gorge with numerous flowing waterfalls to be seen along the journey. Overnight stay at the hotel.  

Day 05:From Tal (1700m) to Chame (2000m) (2670m) 22.6 kilometers. This is one of the longest and most difficult sections of the trekking trail due to a difficult climb. The terrain is challenging but enjoyable. This stage has beautiful jungle and river scenery, so take it easy and enjoy the ride. Overnight stay at the hotel.  

Day 06:Chame (2670m) to Manang (3540m) 29.7 kilometers.The trail continues to climb, but when it widens back into a jeep track, it becomes more rideable. As you ride through the jungle and into the parched alpine region, you'll enjoy amazing views of the Himalaya. It's a good idea to go slow and steady at first to allow your body to adjust. Overnight stay at the hotel,Manang.  

Day 07 Rest, exploration, and acclimitization are all good things to do.Allow yourself a day to acclimate and prepare for the upcoming challenges. Short treks can be taken to explore the surrounding area, visit high altitude lakes, and relax and unwind in Manang; you may not want to leave! You'll be heading into actual mountain wilderness from here.Manang is the home of the Manangi people, and you can occasionally see archery and pony racing here. Overnight stay at the hotel.  

Day 08: Throng Phedi to Manang (3540m) (4450m) 19 kilometers. Today's ascent from Manang to Yak Kharka is short and easy; take your time to observe the scenery. There are a few sections where you'll have to carry your bike, but the trail is otherwise rideable. Overnight stay at the hotel.  

Day 9: Muktinath to Throng Phedi (4450m) (3760m) Throng La Throng La Throng La Throng La Throng (5416m) 22 kilometers. Early in the morning, you'll have to carry and push your bike up more than 1300 meters to Throng La, one of the most difficult aspects of the trip that will test any mountain biker's true character and enthusiasm as you battle the altitude and the cold. However, you will not only be gasping for air, but also gasping in awe as this section of the journey rewards you with magnificent views of the snow-capped mountains from Throng La and superb technical downhill on the other side that will have you grinning from ear to ear, or if you're a little nervous, possibly browning your trousers! You will, however, be greeted with a warm welcome and rest in Muktinath.  

Day 10: Muktinath (3760m) to Tukuche. (2590m) via Lupra Valley route 32 kilometeres. Leaving Muktinath behind, we traverse the hillside along a small, little-used trekking trail, with a small section of push as we reach Dhangladanda, which offers spectacular views of the Himalaya. Following that is a fantastic section of switchback single tracks that will take you down to the river bed in Lupra Valley. Return to the main trail and make your way to Jomsom for lunch. This can be a difficult ride in the wind, but stop and enjoy the scenery along the way. Tukuche, a lovely old riverside village, is reached by the trail. Spend some time exploring the cobbled lanes and learning about the Thakali culture around village.We spend the night in the well-equipped German Bakery. Apple Brandy is a local product that works well as a nightcap to unwind your mind and body after a long day of riding. Overnight stay at a hotel.  

Day 11:Tukuche (2590m) to Tatopani  (1190m) 42 kilometers. The trail begins gently and flat, meandering in and out of valley sides, passing through pine forests and small villages. The views of the snow-capped peaks are spectacular as you follow the river. Lunch will be served at the impressive waterfalls of Rukse Chaahara. After this point, the trail picks up speed as it drops 1000 meters with sweeping curves and plunges, rocky sections and bumps that you will enjoy. Arrive in Tatopani, a cobblestone-lined village known for its revitalizing Hot Springs.Once in Tatopani, take a relaxing bath in the Hot Springs, and perhaps a local massage or a cold beer won't go amiss! Overnight stay at a hotel.  

Day 12:Tatapani (1190m) to Beni and then back to Pokhara(790m). A 25-kilometer ride on open jeep track, mostly flat with a few up and down hills as we leave the Annapurna Region behind. From Beni, we take a jeep back to Pokhara for a well-deserved rest and possibly a beer, a good meal, and some fun out and about. Overnight stay at a hotel.  

 Day 13:Transfer to Kathmandu(1350m). The bus travels from Pokhara to Kathmandu. Check into the hotel, go shopping in the afternoon, and then get ready for your last night in Nepal.
