Mountain Biking in Lubra Valley

One of the best short Mountain  Bike Trips in the Himalaya, mountain biking Lubra Valley is for riders seeking the thrills of high altitude Enduro and have limited time.  The trip starts and ends in the lovely lakeside town of Pokhara.  We fly you into the small mountain airstrip at Jomsom, the heart and soul of the Lower Mustang Region and meet our shuttle driver. We have some breakfast while assembling the bikes and From here the single track riding fun begins! 

The trails are wild and  this is all part of the unique adventure of enduro mountain biking in Nepal. The trails are all raw and natural, varying from loose sand and rocks to fast flowing forest sections, technical steep stone steps and switchbacks. The legendary trails of Lubra Valley will test every part of your riding skill and a good measure of your fitness. 

This trip is fully jeep supported. Our experienced drivers are an essential part of our team and will get you as close to the top of the trails as possible and getting there is also part of the adventure!

Itinerary

Wake up for sunrise and hopefully catch a glimpse of the mountains before we head to the airport. It’s about a 22 min flight to Jomsom, above the Pokhara valley and deep into the heart of the Himalaya, take a peek out of the window for fantastic views of Dhaulagiri and beyond. The flight is simply breathtaking as the plane’s wing tips  almost touch the snow capped peaks before landing on the tiny airstrip at Jomsom. We take some time for breakfast and getting the bikes ready for the journey. We drive up towards the isolated village of Phylak and head to the trail above the village (around 3100m). Today it’s important to ride slowly and take the time to acclimatize to the altitude. Our final destination is the lovely village of Kagbeni, where we will spend the night. Kagbeni will be our base for the next few nights.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This is what most riders come to the Mustang Valley for, smashing lines on the trails of Lubra Valley. Each descent takes us almost 2000m down into the vast Kali Gandaki River basin with seemingly endless flow, challenging switchbacks and trails that are loose enough to keep you on the edge of your seat! 

We shuttle from our base in Kagbeni and hit the ridge line twice throughout the day. You will love the fast flow and the feeling of the high altitude of this epic trail. Make sure you take time to enjoy the views. Our journey ends in Khinga where we stay in a quiet, local teahouse. 

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast we head again towards Lubra, this time taking a slightly higher trail towards Gangapurna and swinging around onto the next ridge. It takes about 1.5 hours of steady riding and some pushing. From here it can feel like we are truly in the lap of the mountains. Our descent is around 7 km of single track all the way to Lubra Village. After this we have a section of jeep track, before another short climb to Dhumba Lake. A cliff side single track trail takes us to Tinigoan from where we drive to the Jomsom Tower and ride the trail here. The Jomsom Tower trail is super fun.  We then pedal along the river to Marpha  where we spend the night. Some of the trails today are certainly not for the faint of heart and have plenty of exposure. 

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

From Marpha we cross the river on a suspension bridge and pedal up around 3km to Titi Lake, an awesome trail takes us back down to Kalopani with a smooth, twisting single track through the Pine Trees. From here we join the rugged Jeep track for a 1200m descent to Tatopani. For seriously good riders there is an extreme switchbacking stone staircase to ride instead of the jeep tracks. This trail is not for the faint of heart. From Tatopani we drive back to Pokhara, arriving in the evening for some chilled beers and BBQ at Silk Road.
