Mountain biking around Annapurna
The Annapurna Circuit is one of the best Himalayan trails for biking and hiking in Nepal. The beautiful scenery, landscape, valleys and mountain views are really incredible. The gentle inclines and well maintained trails make this one of the best ways to get into the heart of the Himalayas on a Mountain Bike. This journey is a combination of biking and trekking, but as progression develops the trail has helped to bring amenities to the remote villages, the way is becoming more and more bike friendly and will certainly offer you the experience of a life time. The route takes you completely around the Annapurna Massif and back into the Pokhara Valley, passing between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges. The ride is technical and highly challenging but very rewarding.
