Mountain Biking in Everest is Epic. This trip is for skilled enduro riders. The trails can be steep, rocky and exposed. You should also have some fitness and an open attitude about having to push/carry your bike for short periods. (In some cases we can also employ the assistance of local porters). Keep in mind the trail altitude varies from 4100m to 2300m so you will feel the effects of altitude on the ups. Our program is designed to allow for as much acclimatization as possible.
Pikey Peak is a 4100 meter “hill” summit which commands stunning panoramic views of the Everest Range. We don’t call them mountains (Himal in Nepali) unless they have snow on them! The area is Solukhumbhu and it lies about 180 km North East of Kathmandu.
Not only does this trip offer by far some of the best pure enduro and downhill trails in Nepal, with the most rideability of any other area, it also offers a rare insight into the charming, industrious and friendly Sherpa people and their himalayan lifestyle as well as the chance to immerse yourself in Buddhism by visiting some monasteries.
Add to that the chance to get up close and personal with the local culture and hospitality and ride on trails traveled by few tourists, well away from the heavily trodden trails of Annapurna and Mustang. Here you stay in simple tea houses owned and managed by local people, eat local food and enjoy the warmth of the kitchen fire and conversations of people who seem to come from an era long passed.
We are working in conjunction with Ratnangi Trail center and Phaplu Mountain Bike Club to maintain the trails and make them better every year.
Note: You will be riding in a remote area. Should you have an accident or fall, the evacuation process is harder than other areas due to dense forest cover and limited road access. Riders should enjoy the trails with care and listen to the guide at all times.
Your Guide: – Your trail expert for this trip is our Co-Founder Santosh Rai, one of the pioneers of mountain biking from Pikey Peak and Phaplu or our most experienced guide Mane Tamang.
