A monumental bikepacking adventure around the Annapurna Circuit featuring all the best singletrack and side trips along the way. Settle in for the long haul as you ride amongst the world’s biggest mountains and through its deepest river gorge. Climb over the highest mountain pass on earth and shred down the longest continuous mtb descent on the planet! This is the ride to end all other rides!
The journey begins in Kathmandu where your senses will spring to life the moment you get off the plane. After a quick introduction to Nepali culture, navigate out of the city and travel deep into the Himalayas. Discover the allure of bikepacking: the simple joy of travelling by bike while living with only your most necessary belongings. Enjoy warm meals and comfortable accommodations in local tea houses along the way - pack only your riding gear, warm clothes, and a small sleeping bag. Visit the historic District of Manang and the sacred Mustang Valley. Ride local trails and relax in tropical Pokhara before flying back to Kathmandu in a small aircraft, with views of the entire Himalayan Range.
As an added bonus, we’ll provide you with bikepacking bags from Revelate Designs and a water bladder filtration system from GeigerRig for use during the trip.
