Some of our Suggestions
Crush the Himalaya
This one day blast form Phedi, high up towards Throng La hits the trails all the way to Kalopani over about 60km of descending, epic single tracks and a few short steep climbs. Its pure Enduro with the help of a Helicopter, we are sure that once will not be enough. Trail can be run in either direction, from Josmom side or from Manang side. Don’t worry about the altitude, you’ll be hitting the trails so hard and fast you won’t be up there for long! But for safety reason our sensible side says get some acclimatization days in Nepal before doing this ride.
High Flyer – 7 Days
This ultimate seven day Heli biking package has it all, five star hotels, Heli drops to some of the most panoramic sites in Nepal and of course five star trails! We traverse the mid Himalaya dropping in at Manakamana and then head up to Muktinath and Lubra Valley for some spectacular Heli assisted biking! Each day ends with cold beers and incredible sunsets.
Straight to the Top – Pikey Peak – 6 Days
From Kathmandu all the way to the top of Pikey Peak in just an hour and a half, no traffic, no horns, no long bumpy jeep ride, no hefty hike a bike! Complete the epic descent in one day and then spend a few days ripping up the local community forest trails around the area before flying back to Kathmandu.
Tsum Valley – 6 Days
Without a doubt the Manasulu region offers some epic biking, but who wants to hike a bike for days at a time when you can fly in? This trip drops us in Tsum Valley where we have endless options for riding in this diverse Himalayan play ground. This one is for serious bikers only!

Heli biking is limited to 4 riders per chopper and a load limit of 500kg, so pack light and get ready to ride hard.
