We offer you the opportunity to choose the experience that suits you best in this well-preserved region of Nepal. Our bike tour starts and ends in Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, which offers numerous routes to discover Nepal's hidden treasures, ancient culture, and remarkable art and architecture. To begin the Upper Mustang bike tour, you can either take a tourist coach or a flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, the gateway to the region, where you will spend a night before embarking on the journey to Upper Mustang.

After departing from Pokhara City, your journey on the Upper Mustang Tour will commence as you cycle along the Beni Baglung Highway.

Take a break and indulge in the natural hot springs at Tatopani Village for a rejuvenating overnight stay. Continuing onwards, you will make your way to Jomsom, passing through the awe-inspiring Kalopani and Marpha, with the majestic Dhaulagiri ranges serving as a breathtaking backdrop.

Embark on an uninterrupted expedition aboard a timeless Enfield 500 cc or a 411 Enfield Himalayan bike as we venture towards Kagbeni from Jomsom, traversing a path characterized by sand, dust, and gusty winds. Leaving behind the verdant and fertile valley, we make our way towards the arid rain-shadow zone of the Himalayas.

Difficulty factors of the Upper Mustang Trek:

The Upper Mustang Bike Tour is not considered a challenging trek. The majority of the tour takes place on flat terrain, although the trail itself is dusty and unpaved. It is essential to be well-prepared for the dusty conditions, intense sun, and strong Himalayan dry winds. Once you enter Jomsom, you will be walking in a desert-like environment on mostly flat terrain, occasionally encountering narrow paths and high passes. The Upper Mustang Trek is classified as a moderate-level trek, but it does require a certain level of physical fitness and good health conditions.

The trek begins in Pokhara (823m) with a picturesque flight to Jomsom (2750m), continuing on to Lo-Manthang with passes exceeding 4000 m, and resting at 3500m in Lo-Mangthang. Due to the altitude gain, some individuals may experience altitude sickness. To avoid this, follow these tips throughout your journey.

  • Hydrate yourself adequately by consuming approximately 4 to 5 liters of purified water every day.
  • Refrain from consuming any food items that may potentially disrupt your digestive system.
  • It is advisable to abstain from alcohol consumption throughout the trekking journey.
  • Ensure that you carry a few first aid kits containing medications such as Dioria, Vhometing, Feaver, Stomached, and Diamox for altitude sickness.

There are various options to access clean water during your expedition, including using filters or purification tablets for spring water. Alternatively, you can buy bottled water or boil water for consumption. If you desire hot water, remember to bring appropriate containers. The price of a one-liter bottle can vary from Rs 150 to Rs 350, depending on the altitude.
  • Hot Shower: It's important to get a good night's sleep to recharge after a long day of hiking, and a refreshing shower can help with that. Unfortunately, hot showers are not part of the package, but they are available at most teahouses and homestays nearby for an additional fee. These showers are powered by either gas or solar energy. As you begin your Manaslu Circuit Trek, you can enjoy a hot shower at a reasonable cost. The price per person per shower typically ranges from Rs. 200 to Rs. 400. It's a good idea to have some Nepali currency on hand to cover the cost of this service.
  • WiFi and reception: While embarking on the Upper Mustang tour, you will have access to wifi at all teahouses. In locations with good reception, you can opt for a local SIM card with data, except for specific areas. Nevertheless, if you choose to utilize the teahouse wifi, there will be a charge of Rs. 200 to Rs. 300 per teahouse. It is important to note that internet service may not be available during unfavorable weather conditions.
  • Laundry Service: When embarking on a lengthy journey, utilizing the laundry service can be an excellent way to reduce the number of belongings you have to pack. In areas with mountains, there are laundry services offered at a reasonable cost, but you also have the choice to wash your clothes yourself. To do this, make sure to bring washing powder or soap and clean your daily-use items. Afterwards, hang them near a wood fire or on the balcony of the tea house, utilizing the wind to ensure they dry quickly overnight.

Tipping Culture:

Tipping is a common practice in the tourism industry in Nepal. When utilizing airport transportation services, it is customary to leave a tip for the driver. Similarly, when dining for lunch or dinner, it is expected to show appreciation by leaving a tip for the staff. This practice also applies to trekking guides, tour guides, climbing guides, and porters. The amount of the tip is discretionary and should reflect your satisfaction with the service received.
