Trip Description - Manaslu MTB Adventures

Manaslu MTB Adventures tour is the best biking tour in Nepal. Most cyclists will enjoy this trek and love it forever. Manaslu MTB Adventures biking tour is for those avid cyclists who love to test their stamina, strength and endurance. You will follow the main trekking and biking trail on your bicycle riding period and enjoy some breathtaking views of beautiful mountains and surrounding nature. This mountain biking ride covers about 50% of the bride and takes you through amazing mountains and beautiful nature.

The trekking and biking path runs spectacularly along a jungle river with occasional steep rock walls. At the top we find large Buddhist villages and monasteries. The most challenging part is the two-thirds of the trek where we cross “Larkya La”, the top of the rock and ice mountain at an altitude of 5,106 meters. Technical biking and trekking path make for a wonderful ride. The villages are authentic and the paths are carved through the sometimes straight rock walls along the wild river.  In the large village of Samagaon we have a rest day to acclimatize to the altitude.

So we have time to visit the Manaslu Base Camp. After Samagaon we head to the hilly, rarely remote land on the way to Larkya La (5,106 m). After crossing Larkya, we come through the forest area of Marshyangdi valley. For a few days, we will be biking and walking in the opposite direction to reach Besishahar in the main Annapurna circuit trail. From here a private vehicle will take us through the big highway road to Kathmandu. Please share your travel ideas and budget per day or total travel budget to help us plan the perfect trip for you.

Accommodation offered during the trip

The accommodation we use may vary depending on our package travel and the range of travel destinations. Before or after the trip you can book comfortable hotels in cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara for your stay. If you book a tea house trekking trip, we will provide a small two-bed room for sharing in the hill lodges which is a basic facility but very clean.

Now, better-equipped lodges are also available in Annapurna and Everest areas but we recommend trekkers to use accommodation above 3500 meters where clean rooms and clean food are readily available. Sometimes a level of flexibility may be required when trekking in remote mountain areas. We believe that you will complete your vacation without any problems and have the trip of a lifetime. If you book camping/trekking, our camping team will manage a comfortable camping site by the river where possible.

There will usually be a dedicated support team on the trip to move luggage and equipment, set up camp, and prepare your food. You will find more detailed information about travel accommodation which is mentioned separately in the lodging section of each vacation package page.

However, you can expect excellent service and high quality in any budget range you choose. You can learn more about different types of travel and their features and the proposed travel price by contacting us directly where we will be very pleased to answer your questions. We always try to choose comfortable accommodation with local character reflecting the best value based on twin share accommodation.

When you book a trip, unless you request a private single room, we will arrange for you to share a twin bed room with a person of the same gender. If you request a private single room, you will need to pay a single room supplementary fee. Please note that during the trek, if the destination is 4000 meters above sea level, only dormitory accommodation with private beds will be available. On trekking trips we try our best but do not promise guaranteed room options. For most of our camping trips, we supply branded two-person tents, including groundsheets.

Mess tent, kitchen tent, toilet tent, service plates, bowls, and all necessities are provided. Members of the mountaineering travel group are requested to manage according to the options given on the website.
