An unforgettable journey into the hidden valleys of Naar & Phu and over the challenging Mesokanto La.
An unforgettable journey into the hidden valleys of Naar and Phu and over the challenging Mesokanto La.
The spectacular and remote Naar Phu Valley only opened up to tourists in 2002. This Valley, tucked away between Annapurna and Manasulu offers a rare glimpse into an unchanged culture and scenery, well off the beaten tourist path. The trails are rarely ridden by bikers and offer a unique challenge. The trip has the feel of a remote expedition, with simple, yet welcoming facilities on the way. The scenery is stunning and the rideable trails are super fun. There are some hard sections of carrying, but they are duly rewarded with fantastic downhills.
After crossing the Kang La, the ride crosses the Annapurna Trail at Manang before heading onto the Tilicho trail. Here you must cross the foreboding Mesokanto La, high above the aqua blue waters of Tilicho lake. Here you will feel like you are in the remote Himalayan wilderness.
This trip has many alternatives in length and can be ridden as Naar Phu only, Tilicho only or combined with a longer trip around Annapurna and into Upper Mustang. Let us know if you need further information about the options.
This journey has its moments of hair raising cliff side trails, tough bike carrying sections and simply unforgettable downhills. Off the bike, the local culture is authentic.
