Muktinath Biking Tour

MUKTINATH TO POKHARA BIKING TOUR

Muktinath is a pilgrimage centre for Buddhists and Hindus; you will see Tibetan traders as well as Sadhus from the far south of India. The shrines, in a grove of trees, include a Buddhist monastery and the Vishnu temple of Jiwala Mayi. An old temple nearby shelters a spring and natural gas jets, which provides Muktinath’s famous eternal flame. The earth-water-fire combination accounts for Muktinath’s great religious significance. Spectacular views of the Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Tukuche peak and several other 8,000m peaks are visible

Jomson is a modern town is the ‘Thakali’ homeland. Thakali people are of Tibetan origin but have their own language and customs. We fly to Jomsom from Kathmandu and initially we ride through a popular trekking trail, which leads us to many different wonderful villages rich in cultural and architectural point of view. Riding on the rocky wide and small track from Jomsom, we descend slowly to meet the paved road which takes to the beautiful Pokhara city lying on the foothill of Annapurna Mountain Range. Unlike the rest of the Nepalese Himalayas, the Annapurna mountain range does not form the border between Nepal and Tibet.

  • 02 Pre-trip meeting and sightseeing in Kathmandu

    After the pre-trip meeting, your sightseeing trip will start at morning. You will have a private vehicle and a professional tour guide at your disposal. We visit Boudhanath Stupa, one of the biggest Buddhist shrines in the world, where we observe Buddhist monks praying in the monasteries surrounding the stupa. After Boudhanath Stupa we visit Pashupatinath, the most famous Hindu temple in the country, located on the banks of the holy Bagmati River. Here we see Hindu holy men (sadhus) meditating, pilgrims bathing and occasionally funeral pyres burning on the ghats. We then head towards Swayambhunath – also called the Monkey Temple - a Buddhist stupa perched atop a hillock on the western side. You get a magnificent view of the valley from here. The rest of our day in Kathmandu is free for further exploration and some shopping in Thamel. Overnight at a hotel.

  • 03 Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara (820m) by tourist bus, 7 hrs.

    Our staff will pick you up at the hotel at 6:30am and escort you to the bus station. The bus to Pokhara leaves at around 7:30am, and the drive is 6 hours including lunch on the way. A beautiful valley set on the banks of the Phewa Lake, Pokhara is also known for its panoramic views of Annapurna, Machapuchare (shape of fish tail) in the north, Dhaulagiri in the west, Lamjung Himal and Manaslu in the east. It is smaller and much less hectic than Kathmandu, hence providing the perfect place to relax in the evening. Overnight at a hotel.

  • 04 Fly to Jomsom (2,700m), assemble the bikes, and ride to Kagbeni (2,900m)

    There are numerous flights that service the Jomsom airstrip early each day before the Kali Gandaki wind picks up by mid-morning. To get used with the altitude and the weather condition, we assemble the bikes as soon as we land in Jomsom and ride the relatively flat river trail to Kagbeni, the border-town of the recently forbidden Mustang Kingdom. Overnight at a hotel.

  • 05 Ride from Kagbeni to Muktinath (3,800m)

    After breakfast early in the morning, we ride up hill, gaining almost 1,000m in elevation, as we head towards Muktinath. This is the highest point of this trip. The landscape is extremely dry and desert-like. You may come across a handful of trekkers and pilgrims, mainly from India, on their way to the holy temple with the eternal flame in Muktinath that burns from a natural gas source. Reaching the culturally and religiously site with stunning mountain views is quite an achievement. Overnight at a hotel

  • 06 Ride from Muktinath to Marpha (2,670m)

    With thrilling views of the Dhaulagiri and several other 8,000m peaks on our sight we begin our descent. On the way we pass yak herds and experience the centuries-old lifestyle of the local people. We ride through Lupra where black magic and human sacrifices are a part of the community rituals. We call it a day in Marpha - a picturesque community known for its apple orchards. The flagstone-lined village of Marpha is popular for apple farming. Don’t forget to try some local apply wine and brandy. Overnight at a guesthouse.

  • 07 Ride form Marpha to Tatopani (1,190m)

    With a fantastic downhill ahead of us, we begin our descent towards Tato Pani (hot water), which in the local language means hot water. At the end of the ride, you can pamper yourself in the natural hot spring, which is located besides the Kali Gandaki River, hence giving you the time and space to loosen up your muscles and chill to the natural sound of the wilderness. Overnight at a hotel

  • 08 Ride from Tato Pani to Sarangkot

    We carry on descending further down towards Beni following the Kali Gandaki River, before finally reaching the Baglung highway. We follow the highway up to Nau Danda and then take the dirt road to Sarangkot, which also happens to be the number one viewpoint in Pokhara to enjoy the views of the Himalayas along with the sunrise and sunset. Overnight at a hotel..

  • 09 Sarangkot to Pokhara (830m)

    Today we ride through a steep and narrow trail to Pokhara. Make sure you check your brakes before you start a 90% downhill. Pokhara is the starting or finishing point for some of Nepal's most popular treks. The lakes with the magnificent Fishtail dominate the mountain ranges. Overnight at a hotel.

  • 10 Drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu (1,345m)- 7 hrs

    We return back to Kathmandu on a tourist bus. A pleasant stroll and a last-minute shopping spree in Thamel and Basantapur in Kathmandu. We host a farewell dinner in a typical Nepali-style restaurant with cultural performances (dancing and singing with costumes) tonight to celebrate our hard work and achievement in the biking trip.

    You have the option to extend your trip to continue onto Chitwan jungle safari, rafting and bungee, Kathmandu valley shopping tour, scenic Everest flight, and other activities. Overnight at a hotel.
