Mountain Biking Tours in Nepal
Nepal is a mecca for trekking and cycling enthusiasts from all over the world for good reason – what awaits people are some of the most breathtaking views on the planet and a seemingly never ending array of trails to suit all tastes and experience. Asiaguide Adventures provides tailored mountain biking tours, specifically designed to accommodate the needs of each individual. The guides are certified from the DIMB (German mountain biking club) and the BDR (German bike association) and Asiaguide Adventures have been offering cycling tours in Asia for several years. The guides not only have in-depth experience catering towards mountain biking enthusiasts, but they also have experience with ice climbing, rock climbing, ski-mountaineering and more.
Since 2005, Asiaguide Adventures have been offering mountain biking tours in Nepal, focusing on spectacular regions such as the Upper Mustang, considered Nepal’s hidden ‘Shangri La’ and dubbed the Lost Kingdom. The Mustang valley features remote and desolate plains, mysterious villages and Tibetan culture unchanged for hundreds of years. Breathtaking views await guests to the area, with panoramic views of the Annapurna range. Closed up until 1992, the Mustang valley has since seen a trickle of tourists explore this enigmatic region, the majority of which being trekkers. The isolation from the outside world has ensured the customs and beliefs of each village has remained unchanged and will ensure a memorable experience.
Other mountain biking tours in Nepal include the Annapurna tour, one of the greatest mountain biking trails in the world with dramatic scenery and stunning trails with a huge variety of terrain to test even the most skilled rider. Hiking with the bike at altitude is required, as the cycling tour reaches the highest point at the Thorong La pass at 5,416m, pushing each rider to the limit and from here an unforgettable downhill awaits. As well as the Tibetan influence, there is also Hindu cultures, combining to make this area unique.
