Description of Down hill mountain biking tour in Nepal

Exhilarating biking and unforgettable Himalayan scenery combine on this downhill mountain biking tour in Nepal. Descend 3,000m on high Alpine single tracks and fast-flowing dirt trails in the highest mountains in the world, on a trip that combines adventure, adrenaline and amazing mountain views.

The trip starts in the capital Kathmandu, where you spend your first night and have time to explore, before heading to Pokhara in the shadow of the Himalaya range. From here, take a Twin Otter plane through the mountains to Jomsom and then board a 4x4 Jeep to travel even higher, ready for your mountain biking adventure to begin.

Over the next three days, descend from the high Alpine landscape through the foothills of the Himalaya. You’ll be riding on spectacular trails with panoramic mountain vistas, pausing in remote villages for a chance to learn a little about the local Mustang culture. The route takes you across the deepest gorge on earth in the shadow of Annapurna Massif and Dhaulagiri and you’ll see eight of the 8,000m peaks in the region, including Mount Everest.

After each exciting day’s biking, relax in friendly teahouses along the route with an ice-cold beer or some of the fiery local apple brandy. This trip is fully supported, with porters and a fully qualified guide, and all bikes and helmets supplied. This is an amazing mountain biking experience, riding the slopes of the world’s 7th and 10th highest mountains, with the chance to experience Himalayan culture and the friendly people of the Mustang region, too.

To make your eight-day trip easy and time efficient, all airport transfers are included. You will spend four nights in hotel accommodation in Kathmandu and Pokhara, and three nights in teahouses while cycling. All breakfasts in Kathmandu are included, all meals whilst cycling, and there is a welcome and farewell dinner to enjoy, too.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Down hill mountain biking tour in Nepal


Leave Nothing But Footprints…
We stand by the adage of “leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but photos” and encourage clients to do the same. This trek travels through remote, fragile eco-systems and their preservation is of the utmost importance.

Take in What You Take Out
We always dispose of our rubbish in an eco-friendly manner and ‘take out, what we put in’. We encourage our clients to take batteries back to the UK to dispose of properly.

Bottled Water
Bottled water has an immensely negative impact on the areas we visit, as they are not recyclable. We recommend purchasing water-purifying tablets or a water filter to treat your drinking water whilst in Nepal and to bring a reusable water bottle. Many of the places we stay also offer boiled/treated/filtered water - perfect for refilling your bottle!

Bio-friendly & Biodegradable Detergents, Soaps & Shampoos
Our guides only use detergents that are environmentally friendly and biodegradable. This practice is also recommended to our clients whilst on holiday and before their trip departs. We recognise that it is difficult to find some of these products whilst in the countries we visit, which is why we communicate to our clients before departure the importance of minimizing our environmental impact.

K.E.E.P. (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project) – Nepal
We support K.E.E.P.

K.E.E.P. is a not-for profit, non-governmental organization based in Kathmandu, Nepal. The mission of K.E.E.P. is to ensure the future ecological and cultural prosperity of Nepal and its people by maximizing the benefits and reducing the negative impacts associated with tourism.

Their objectives are to:
- Promote sustainable tourism and provide environmental and cultural education to travelers and the tourism industry through free, impartial information and training programs
- Enable sustainable development through outreach projects, training and resources in order to seek a more equitable distribution of the economic benefits of tourism for the people of Nepal
- Conduct research and development activities on environmental and associated social issues

We keep our clients informed and encourage a visit to their Visitor’s Centre in Kathmandu whilst on tour. The Visitor’s Centre provides unbiased and invaluable local knowledge of the areas we visit and is an excellent resource for information and insight into the environmental and ecological issues in Nepal.

At Work in the UK
- We only use energy efficient light bulbs in our offices
- All paper, cardboard, plastics, and tins are recycled
- Our employees are encouraged to only print what is absolutely necessary and reduce/reuse materials whenever possible
- We do not have any printed brochures and aim to keep printing of paper materials to a minimum. We encourage our clients to do the same.
- Our office printer has a 3* energy rating and is energy efficient
- Our staff walk or cycle to work
- Paper is sourced from sustainable forests and is 100% recycled
- Ink used in all of our materials are eco-friendly, vegetable based inks.


Our Foundation
After seeing first hand the poor treatment and conditions porters often work in, we decided to create our own foundation dedicated to providing proper clothing and equipment for porters, their families and the remote mountain communities we visit. On all of our Nepal trips, clients are encouraged to donate/bring useful goods and equipment with them on their holidays. We ensure that all goods are distributed fairly.

Our not-for-profit foundation also supports a local school and community in Beluwa, a remote village in the Ghurka region and is the hometown of one of our local guides. We have supplied the school with much needed materials like pencils and writing books and the students with warm jumpers.

Our current project is to raise the funds needed for a water pump to be installed in the village. At the moment villagers must walk for over 2 hours each way to collect water.

Local Guides and Suppliers
- We employ local suppliers and guides.
- We only use reputable suppliers that adhere to the same high standards as ourselves.
- We use suppliers that train and educate younger employees to international standards, gaining international certifications thus raising the standards of the respective industries.

We stay in small family run guesthouses and at home-stays (the homes of local families), thus ensuring that money is driven back into local communities. At all other times we aim to stay in independently owned hotels.

Small Group Sizes
Small group sizes equals more interaction with locals, less intrusion, and potential for more adventure, as well as allowing for the spontaneous and magical moments that occur while traveling, all while making less of an impact on the places we visit. We keep group sizes to a maximum of 12 people.

Food, Drink and Local Products
- On this tour some but not all food is included with your holiday. When the opportunity arises, we encourage you to explore local options whilst eating, and to eat in independent and family run establishments. Not only does this assist in spreading out income for a variety of different families/businesses it encourages our clients to experience new/local cuisine and provides a genuine experience
- In circumstances where we do provide food, produce is locally sourced and we employ local cooks and cook assistants
- We encourage our guests to buy local, shop at local markets and purchase souvenirs/handicrafts and authentic goods that are produced within the region we are exploring.
