- Trip Outline
Enduro into the Heart and Soul of the Himalayan Wilderness
The new road development has brought us access into one of the most remote wilderness in the Nepal Himalayas, giving us unlimited access to some of the very best hidden trails on this desert like tundra of jagged cliffs, rolling plains, moraines and river valleys. Our team at Himalayan Single Track is super excited to bring this special first time in Nepal itinerary to you…”Upper Mustang — Kingdom of Enduro”. Right from the far reaches of the barren Chinese border all the way down to the rich and fertile Deepest Gorge in the World. Along trails which have for centuries only been trodden by Yaks and Nomads. Not only will some of these trails blow your mind and have you shouting “Yahoo” at the top of your lungs, they will also take you into the heart and soul of the nomadic and little explored lifestyle and culture of the Mustangi people.
This, by no means is not a luxury (read lazy) Enduro trip. The tour is pure, old school Enduro in every sense. Meaning, while you will have some of the sections shuttled, there is still plenty of grunt and grind uphill and some even tougher sections of push and carry. These sections are there because the downhill is epic and worth your sweat, curse words and effort. We stay overnight in authentic Tea houses and enjoy local food, music, culture and people.
This ride is a MUST on the bucket list of every hardcore Enduro purest, as it surely is a lifetime experience. The beauty of this trip is the trail options, while what’s written below is our standard program, if you’re the adventurous type, then let our guides take your exploring on many of the other options. Who knows you could find your own un-ridden trails.
Who’s it for? Enduro lovers and adventure seekers who don’t mind the rough and tough remote area environments.
