Annapurna Circuit Mountain Bike Ride is a mountain biking adventure in Annapurna Circuit Himalayan Wilderness with paragliding in Pokhara, rafting Seti River Gorge and to conclude the adventure, a total relaxation with Jungle Safari in Chitwan National Park.
It is a technical and physically very challenging ride on high altitude 3000-5200m. It requires bike push from Manang to Shree Kharka, from Tilicho basecamp to the shores of Tilicho lake and through Mosekanto La pass. The ride down from the Mosekanto La to Jomson is a 10km long single trek difficult technical ride. This ride requires both good technical riding skills as well as high level of fitness.
We will spend 2 nights camping at Tilicho Lake, visit Tibetan style Buddhist villages, monasteries and Hindu temples and immerse ourselves in Buddhist culture and philosophy. Finally we stop in Tatopani to enjoy hot springs and well-deserved massage session.
