Coming from the lush, green valleys of Nepal, you will be blown away by this starkly beautiful high altitude desert, bordered to the south by some of the Himalaya’s highest mountains.
The Mustang region is characterized by incredibly sculpted canyons; ancient fortress-villages which offer oases of green fields in the arid landscape of the ‘Tibetan’ Plateau; high passes and stark ridge-lines, all set against the backdrop of the soaring snow-peaks of the Himalayas.
You will ride through the southern part of the ancient Kingdom of Lo, which is tucked away at the headwaters of the ‘deepest gorge in the world’, the Kali Gandaki river. While the northern part is a restricted area, we are free to ride and explore the trails here in Lower Mustang, to enjoy the hospitality of our friendly hosts and to experience the incredible diversity of Nepal. In just 10 days we can immerse ourselves in the cultural melting pot of the Kathmandu Valley and spend time in the ancient trading communities which lie on our trail, which happens to be along the ancient trade route to Tibet.
The area has amazing single trails that will appeal to All Mountain and Enduro riders as well as jeep trails and less dramatic single trails which will bring a smile to the face of any mountains biker.
This ride links in well with some time relaxing in the charming lakeside town of Pokhara, or take a trek in the incredible Annapurnas, enjoy some time in a village or homestay, or simply continue on down to the Terai for some time in the jungle.
Customize your ride
Your ride can be customized in a number of ways, we can stick to the single trail pretty much every day and have some amazing uplifts for those who like gravity assisted riding. This ride, however, can also be customized to suit those who like bigger less technical trails and big climbs, just let us know what tickles your fancy and we will design the perfect ride for you.
