If you came to Nepal to see mountains, this is the tour for you! Ride up to a huge 4000m to the sacred Hindu city of Muktinath where century old temples are carved into the hillside, eagles soar overhead, and glacial rivers wind their way through snow-capped peaks.
This tour is not for the faint hearted as we ride through a variety of terrains. You will experience water crossings, rocky ascents, suspension bridges, and the occasional bit of sand. If the sound of that makes you excited - then this is the tour for you!
We run this tour on both the Royal Enfield Himalayan and the 250cc enduro. We don't typically mix bikes and therefore run separate tours. Both tours follow the same overall route, but on the enduros we are able to take more remote and difficult trails as compared to the Himalayan.
Into Thin Air - Enduro
Into Thin Air - Royal Enfield Himalayan
Day 1 - Welcome to Pokhara!
Relax by the lake and take in the beautiful surrounds by day. Meet your riding team, your trusty steed, and tour briefing by night. Tomorrow we ride!
Day 2 - Pokhara to Baglung via Sarangkot
Ride up to the paragliding launching sight which boasts Pokhara's premier views of the Annapurna Range. Ride across Nepal's longest suspension bridge for lunch at Kusma, and visit Baglung's sacred Hindu temple.
Day 3 - Baglung to Lete
Today we start our vertical climb into the Himalayas. Ride from 1000m up to nearly 3000m and see the landscape change as we bid farewell to the jungles below and enter the land of 8000+ peaks.
Day 4 - Lete to Kagbeni
Today we enter the moonscape - a region where little vegetation grows, the rivers run more wild, and glaciers line your riding vista. We sleep in Kagbeni - an incredible Tibetan village where mountain goats are herded through cobblestone streets.
Day 5 - Kagbeni to Marpha via Muktinath
Today we reach our highest point - Muktinath, 4000m! We take the back route via an ancient Buddhist monastery and as the air thins we reach our destination. Enjoy a yak-steak for lunch before descending down to Marpha - a incredibly beautiful Thakali village.
Day 6 - Marpha to Tatopani
Visit the local monastery in the morning and then we start our descent back to the warmer climate below. It's the final night of the tour so to celebrate we stop at Tatopani - home of Nepal's famous hot springs!!
Day 7 - Tatopani to Pokhara
Today we hit paved roads again and wind our way back to civilisation. You will be amazed at how much you have experienced in such a short time on the road. Needless to say, it's a fun night back in town!
