Winter is winding down now in Kathmandu and HST is out and about gearing up for the spring season. We have some great long tours on the go, check them out, better still join one! If you are just in town for a day or two join one of our guides on a day tour or downhill trip exploring some of the best trails in the Kathmandu Valley.

Hike, Bike and Paddle the Himalaya – 17th April
Join in this ultimate adventure around the Annapurna Circuit. The Annapurna trek is one of the most well know treks in Nepal and this tour allows you to take advantage of three of Nepal’s top adventure activities, Trekking, Mountain Biking and White Water Rafting. Trek along the Marasyandi River and the lush valley scenery up to Manang and then over the challenging snow covered Throng La at 5600 meters. From the holy temples of Muktinath it’s a wild downhill mountain bike ride all the way along the Kaligandaki Valley to Tataopani for a splash in the hot springs and then on to Maldhunga for a fun filled two and a half days of white water rafting on one of the most beautiful rivers in Nepal. This trip is certainly one of the best ways to spend your time in Nepal!

Annapurna Circuit – 5th March/ 7th April
For as long as Nepal has been open to tourism, The Annapurna circuit has been one of the most popular trekking trails. The gentle inclines and well maintained trails make this one of the best ways to get into the heart of the Himalayas on a Mountain Bike. This journey is a combination of biking and trekking, but as progression develops the trail to bring amenities to the remote villages, the way is becoming more and more bike friendly and will certainly offer you the experience of a life time. The route takes you around the massive Annapurna range and back into the Pokhara Valley, passing between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna massifs. The ride is technical and highly challenging and is a journey that you will never forget.

Jomsom Muktinath – Every Monday
Jomsom is in the heart of the Himalaya and offers some spectacular trails for mountain bikers. Peddle up between the Nilgiri Massifs to one of the holiest temples in Nepal, Muktinath at the foot of the mighty Throng Pass on route from the Annapurna Circuit. From here there are many options for some amazing single track and downhill riding along the beautiful Kaligandaki River, one of the deepest gorges in the world, past ancient monasteries and traditional villages. Bump along on cobble paths and get your feet wet in ice fed streams. This is surely one of the most spectacular short mountain biking holidays in the gotta do it once in your life!

  1. Hi,
    Thank you so much for posting, It is a rain drop post. But I would like to share with you my real life experience of Bike Trekking In The Himalayas.
    Trekking in Nepal is fantastic, but the ability to mountain bike can offer an even richer experience of mountain biking in Nepal. Lest you think that mountain biking in Nepal is only for hard-core cyclists, new low-altitude trails have been opened up for advanced beginner and intermediate mountain bikers. You do need to be in good shape because nothing is flat in Nepal, but with a support van and expert coaches and guides, Nepal can be the perfect place to develop your mountain biking skills.
    If you like Trekking Himalayas please go for it.
