The Jomsom Muktinath Trail
Image supplied by Himalayan Single Track
The Best Short MTB Trip in Nepal
By far and away the most ridden trail in Nepal, this short mountain biking adventure takes you into the heart of the Himalaya and rips down some of the best trails in the Lower Mustang region, including the famous Lubra Valley Trail. The route follows the raging Kaligandaki (Black River), famed as being part of the deepest gorge in the world, splitting the massive peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri.
The upper part of the gorge is also called Thak Khola after the local Thakhali people who became prosperous from trans-Himalayan trade and are famed for their delicious food, apple growing and the making of local Apple Brandy.
Our trail climbs up to Muktinath at the foot of the mighty Throng Pass on route from the Annapurna Circuit. From here there are many options for some amazing single track and downhill riding, past ancient monasteries and traditional villages. Bump along on cobble paths and get your feet wet in ice fed streams. This is surely one of the most spectacular short mountain biking holidays in the world. If you ride with the HST Team we will take you on trails other companies don’t know to hidden lakes, villages and single track descents.
You have to try it once in your life.
Who’s it for? Intermediate fun loving mountain bikers, mountain biking families and people who might be doing their first multi day trip. Trails are also adaptable for serious bikers with a short amount of time in Nepal. Great for Expats looking for a short getaway.
