The Kali Gandaki Attack

Downhill Mountain Biking - The World's Deepest Valley - Varied landscapes - Annapurna & Dhaulagiri - Mustang

 

With the 8000m peaks of Annapurna on one side and Dhaulagiri on the other, the Kali Gandaki is the deepest valley gorge in the world. Spectacular and dramatic. Since a dirt road was forged up this valley and into Upper Mustang it is now possible to enjoy this awesome place on a mountain bike and with vehicle support too. From the highest point at Muktinath (3900m) to the end of the ride at Galeshowr at around 1200m, there's a whopping 2700m of descent to enjoy in just a couple of days. The riding is bumpy and rough, but not particularly technical. But, above all this is a journey to savour as you bike down through the Himalaya from the arid, Tibetan plateau beneath the towering spires of the Nilgiri peaks and down through ever changing climatic zones to a more sub-tropical affair. This itinerary could easily be extended by adding some extra days biking the fantastic trails of the Kathmandu Valley. Alternatively, at the end of the biking you could complete a Kali Gandaki epic and continue down river by raft for a couple of days.

Sleeping bags (3 season) will be required for the one night spent in a trekkers lodge. We can arrange sleeping bag rental if required.
