Himalaya Heights

Mountain Biking in Nepal

Nepal is on most of our bucket lists and there's a reason why. It is home to eight of the world's ten highest mountains; the landscapes are diverse and the views staggering. It is the birthplace of Buddhism and boasts a rich cultural diversity and wonderful people. As a developing country Nepal can be a challenging place to travel in, we've worked diligently over the years to offer the very best Nepal mountain bike trip available. Our guides and support staff are the best; they are hand picked and professional. Our routes have been carefully chosen; we ride as much singletrack as possible and spend three full days on the Annapurna circuit. We avoid long slogs up dusty roads and instead shuttle you so that you can save your energy for the fun stuff. From the moment that you touch down in Kathmandu you'll be transported on an unforgettable mountain bike adventure, a true trip of a lifetime.
