Nepal Mountain Bike Tour

Surrounded by spectacular vistas and rhododendron forests, which give way to bamboo groves, you will encounter the marvellous culture of the people, with a mix of Aryan and Mongoloid people. The Annapurna Himal lies between the Kali Gandaki and Marsyangdi river valley, forming a solid, mountain bastion. It spans a total of 40 miles and incorporates twelve peaks that are higher than 7000m

Nepal Mountain Bike Tour Detailed Itinerary

Day-1: Kathmandu
Arrival transfer, included dinner, overnight at Thamel Eco Resort

Day-2: Nagarkot, cycle to Nagarkot, overnight hotel (B-L) After breakfast, transfer by road to Bhaktapur to avoid traffic, then cycle to Nagarkot on nice backroads and through pine forest. As we pedal along the rim of the valley we pass terraced farmland and houses that seem to cling to the hillside. When we reach the top of the hill we are rewarded with the our first glimpses of the snowy peaks of the Himalayas.

Day-3: Cycle and visit Bhaktapur
After an early morning breakfast we ride west to the medieval town of Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur is an ancient city, with beautiful Newari art and a wonderful cultural heritage. There are many lovely temples and palace squares to explore.

Day-4: Drive to Pokhara
Free morning in Kathmandu. In the early afternoon we drive to Pokara. On a clear day the views from here over the lake are breathtaking. There is plenty of time to enjoy this city and make some last minute preparations for our ride up in the Himalayas.

Day-5: Fly to Jomsom, ride to Kagbeni, overnight guesthouse (B-L-D)
A spectacular morning flight will bring us to Jomsom, a lovely village nestled in the Annapurna mountain range at 2800m. We then cycle to Kagbeni, only two hours away. This is perfect way to get acclimatised to the higher altitudes. In the afternoon we will go out on foot and explore the valley. This was one of the major trading routes between Tibet and India. The traders brought salt from Tibet and barley, spices and cloth from India. We stay overnight in Kagbeni.

Day-6:Cycle to Muktinath (B-L-D), guesthouse
We set off early for a strenuous ride uphill to the spiritual hub of Muktinath. A jeep can be used for those who can't make the strenuous uphill.

Day-7-8: Cycle Annapurna circuit (B-L-D), guesthouse
From today our ride is mostly downhill until we get back towards Pokara. Don't be deceived though, the adventure is far from downhill with the legendary mountain views! We cycle along the parts of the Annapurna Circuit and we stop overnight in lovely authentic local villages.

Day-9:Cycle Annapurna Circuit (B-L-D), transfer to Pokara,
The last day of cycling is just few hours, finishing at Beni. Our bus will be waiting for us. We load up the gear and prepare for the bus journey back to Pokhara.
