Trip Introduction

Round Annapurna Mountain Biking Tour takes you to one of the most beautiful mountain biking route in the world. We bike through a wonderful variety of landscapes and culture, from the subtropical lower Marsyangdi Valley where Gurung and Thakali people dominate to the northern arid Buddhist areas.

Biking in Annapurna Circuit follow along the Marsyangdi River, on easy trail, crossing over suspension bridge, rice terraces, and beautiful forest. After Pisang we will get stunning up-close views of snowy and glaciated high peaks including Annapurna II, III and IV. This remote area lies in a rain shadow forilmed by the Annapurnas and the landscape supports little in the way of forest apart from pine, juniper and scrub rhododendron.

Huge glacial moraines abound, etched deeply by wind erosion into fantastic pillars. The Thorong pass (5416 m) wilderness is one of the highlight of this tour. After the pass, we reach Muktinath and then Jomsom. We continue our bike tour to Tatopni then to Beni where we catch bus then drive to Pokhara.
