Many mountain bike routes lay claim to the title of the World's Greatest, only the Kali Gandaki Valley trails, in the Mustang region of Nepal, can claim to be surrounded by five-mile-high peaks. Every night you'll stay in teahouses run by local villagers and stocked with good food and local beverages.
The Kali Gandaki Valley – the deepest valley in the world – marries natural grandeur, local culture and relative luxury in a combination found nowhere else. This mountain biking holiday in Nepal, on the roof of the world, offers a delightful variety of riding experiences: tough climbs, technical descents, fast, flowing singletrack, and the most spectacular views you can imagine.
You'll also experience an incredible flight on the route between Pokhara and Jomsom.
Riding the trails of the legendary Annapurna Circuit and the lower Mustang region, at altitudes from 1,500m to 4,000m (4,900ft to 13,000ft), this mountain biking holiday in Nepal will take you to some of the most beautiful and unexplored places on the planet, where you will experience the most emotional mountain biking of your life.
