One of the most popular and amazing  biking trail in Nepal is Jomsom-Pokhara Biking trials. Jomsom lies north of Pokhara in Mustang district between Annapurna and Dhaulatiri Mountain Valley.Mostly “THAKALI” peoples live in MUSTANG and they are originally origin from TIBETAN.

We fly to jomsom from Pokhara and we start ride from jomsom,which is very popular trial and leads us to many different wonderful villages rich in cultural and architectural point of view. The getway of Upper Mustang Kegbeni and famous pilgrimage attraction Muktinath impressed you so much. The rocky wide and small track slowly descends to meet a paved road which takes to the beautiful Pokhara city on the day. Unlike the rest of the Nepalese Himalayas, the Annapurna mountain range does not form the border between Nepal and Tibet. On the way you will ride your mountain bike along the world deepest gorge and natural hot spring bath are the most highlighted of this mountain bike trip in Nepal.

You are advised to consider the following equipment as essentials while packing. Please use this list as a guideline. Adjustments to the list can be managed according to our requirements, interests, duration of the trip, and season of the trip. We can find a variety of these gears to hire or buy in Kathmandu. The majority of the gears which are for sale in Kathmandu are locally manufactured (hence a lot cheaper) and some gears found here are imported from China and are obviously of better quality. We can find very high quality branded gears too in some famous stores in Kathmandu.

Many of the personal climbing gears can be hired in the base camp as well, however, the quality of equipment at base camp can be not as high as those found in Kathmandu to hire. Further, it will be better to remember that at the start of the trek, apart from our day pack, our luggage that will be carried by porters. Since luggage has weight limitation of approximately 33 pounds or 15 kg.
