- Trip Outline
A Classic Mountain Biking Trip around Nepal’s Iconic Annapurna Circuit.
By far and away this is one of our most popular trips. It has a lot more to offer other than just psychical challenges and high altitude trails. It’s a journey along one river valley and down another between some of the biggest mountains in the world! The scenery is stunning and along the way you will pass through many authentic villages, experience the warm hearted hospitality of the Nepalese people and enjoy the delicious food and warm hospitality. Now days the trails are predominantly rugged jeep tracks, but the scenery is still breathtaking and the riding Epic.
While our classic program is 14 days we can also offer custom options to this itinerary. You can link to Tilicho Lake or Naar Phu or even make and extended trip into Upper Mustang. Just drop us a line and will custom a program for you.
You will be riding through the highest mountain range in the world, the Himalayas and cross the mighty Throng La at 5464 meters. There is nothing like this!
