Nepal Mountain Biking » Annapurna Round Mountain Biking

Round Annapurna Biking. photo by Thagendra
Annapurna Round Mountain Biking One of Nepal's most famous routes lies close to the Marsyangdi and Kali Gandaki Rivers, near Tibet, and within the Annapurna Conservation area.This is not easy trek, as the route rises to an altitude of 5416m at the Thorong-La Pass, but it is an exciting and beautiful one, and one well suited to mountain biking for those with good bike skills. We first explored the route by bike in 1992 and are now very familiar with it. It is very technical, particularly the downhill section from the Thorong-La, and we do not recommend it for beginners, but with views of peaks at over 8000m and a variety of landscapes, plants and animals, it is well worth the effort. At night we stay in village lodges. More Pictures >>>>
