To Mountain Bike Annapurna is on the bucket-list of many avid cyclists. This challenging high pass route through the Himalaya’s certainly has its appeal to mountain bikers.
Our guides keep telling us to take out the first day of this brutal climb up to Manang, but we keep saying to them, no matter where you start to Mountain Bike Annapurna, the first day is tough! Not to put you off, but this circuit is exactly that. It’s essentially five days of climbing to the heights of Throng La (5416m). Sometimes the way up is rough and rocky, sometimes covered in Ice and Snow, it is nothing short of Brutal! That’s why it’s also the route chosen by Yak Attack, the toughest bike race in the world.
BUT as the saying goes, what goes up must come down and indeed coming down is what we do best! Our route does not go straight down to Jomsom like many others do. We take you on some epic single tracks down through the famed Lubra Valley and beyond. After all, you did just spend five days climbing and humping your bike over a frozen mountain pass, so at the very least we want you to enjoy the downhill.
By far and away, to mountain bike Annapurna is one of our most popular trips offered by Himalayan Single Track. Of course it has a lot more to offer other than the psychical challenges and the trails. It’s a journey along one river valley and down another between some of the biggest mountains in the world! The scenery is stunning and along the way you will pass through many authentic villages, experience the warm hospitality of the Nepalese people and enjoy the delicious food and mind boggling views.
