NEPAL MOUNTAIN BIKE TOUR

 

Nepal Mountain Bike itinerary

 

Day 01: Kathmandu

Arrival transfer, included dinner, overnight at Thamel ER (D)

 

Day 02: Nagarkot, cycle to Nagarkot, overnight hotel (B-L)

After breakfast, get transferred to Bhaktapur to avoid traffic, then cycle to Nagarkot on nice backroads and through pine forest. As we pedal along the rim of the valley we pass terraced farmland and houses that seem to cling to the hillside. When we reach the top of the hill we are rewarded with the our first glimpses of the snowy peaks of the Himalayas.

 

Day 03: Cycle and visit Bhaktapur, overnight at Thamel ER (B-L)

After an early morning breakfast we ride west to the medieval town of Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur is an ancient city, with beautiful Newari art and a wonderful cultural heritage. There are many lovely temples and palace squares here for us to explore.

 

Day 04: Drive to Pokara, (including bikes), overnight in Four Seasons Hotel (B)

Free morning in Kathmandu. In the afternoon we fly to Pokara. On a clear day the views from here over the lake are breathtaking. There is plenty of time to enjoy this city and make some last minute preparations for our ride high up in the Himalayas.

 

Day 05: Fly to Jomsom, ride to Kagbeni, overnight guesthouse (B-L-D)

A spectacular morning flight will bring us to Jomsom, a lovely village nestled in the Annapurna mountains range of the Himalayas located at 2800m. Then we will ride to Kagbeni, only two hours away. This is perfect way to get acclimatised to the higher altitudes. In the afternoon we will go out on foot and explore the valley. This was one of the major trading routes between Tibet and India. The traders brought salt from Tibet and barley, spices and cloth from India where they traded it in a lively market. It is one of the most beautiful villages in the whole Annapurna region. We stay overnight in Kagbeni.

 

Day 06: Cycle to Muktinath (B-L-D), guesthouse

We set off early for a strenuous ride uphill to the spiritual hub of Muktinath making it feel like a true pilgrimage. While there we take in all of the most beautiful and sacred sights. A jeep can be used for those who can't make the strenuous uphill.

 

Day 07-08: Cycle Annapurna circuit (B-L-D), guesthouse

From today our ride is mostly downhill until we get back towards Pokara. Don't be deceived though, the adventure is far from downhill with the legendary mountain views! We cycle along the backside of the Annapurna Circuit and we stop overnight in lovely authentic local villages.

 

Day 09  Cycle Annapurna Circuit (B-L-D), transfer to Pokara, overnight Four Seasons Hotel

The last day ride is just few hours, finishing at Beni. Our bus will be waiting for us. We load up the gear and prepare for the bus journey back to Pokhara.

Day 11  Fly to Kathmandu, afternoon city tour, overnight Thamel ER (bikes go on the van)
