Overview

Upper Mustang is one of the Mustang district's two major divisions in northwestern Nepal (the other division is Lower Mustang). On the Chinese side, it borders the Tibetan plateau, and on the Nepalese side, it borders the Dolpo and Manang. Muktinath, a popular Buddhist and Hindu pilgrimage site, is located in Mustang.

Upper Mustang is known for its desert-like terrain. As a result, cycling in this area can be an exciting experience. This mountain biking tour is designed so that you can enjoy biking while taking in the breathtaking scenery.

The tour will take you from Kathmandu to Pokhara and then to Muktinath in Jomsom. The main biking routes will then be followed, such as Chele, Syangboche, Charang, Lo-Manthang, and Kagbeni, to name a few. This incredible tour includes sightseeing, mountain biking, pilgrimage, adventure, and fun activities.
