The Annapurna Mountain Bike tour starts and ends in Kathmandu. The Annapurna Mountain Bike is a Mountain Biking tour that takes 16 days taking you through Kathmandu, Nepal and other destinations in Nepal.

A unique mountain bike traverse from Jomsom to Gorkha. The Annapurna Circuit for many years has been considered one of the finest and most complete treks in the world. The recent development of single lane roads into this stunning mountain range have not only brought progress to some of Nepal's communities but for adventurous cyclists, new and exciting routes. The Kali Gandaki Valley has now become an ideal region to mountain bike in Nepal. Few trails on earth can compare with the grandeur of the deepest gorge in the world, set between the two 8000m peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. Flying into Jomsom, we explore the trails of this spectacular region before descending to Pokhara via wonderful villages that are home to Buddhist mani walls and prayer wheels, apple orchards and even hot springs. After a well earned rest in Pokhara we continue our ride along the southern section of the Annapurna Circuit passing by terraced fields to the mighty Marsyandi River. Here we leave the majestic Annapurna behind as we head cross country to the ancient town of Gorkha, where we transfer back to the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu.
You will be met by a representative of World Expeditions and transferred to the Radisson hotel. Remainder of the afternoon is at leisure. A pre-trek briefing will be given around 5pm where arrangements will be made for the distribution of your kit bag, sleeping bag and down/fibrefill jacket. Evening drinks are held in the hotel for all World Expeditions clients arriving today. Drinks and snacks will generally be served from 6:30 pm until 7:15pm, and this is a great opportunity to get acquainted with your fellow group members before heading out to dinner.
This morning we take a bike tour of Kathmandu and in the afternoon transfer to Nagarkot. Nagarkot is a village located approx. 32 km east of Kathmandu in the Bhaktapur District, and is renowned for its sunrise views of the Himalaya. On a clear day we may gain views of Mount Everest as well as other snow-capped peaks of the Himalayan range to the east. Nagarkot also offers a panoramic view of the Kathmandu Valley.
