NEPAL-THE MUSTANG CERCUIT
NEPAL-THE MUSTANG CERCUIT
14 NIGHTS –15 DAYS –RIDING 10 DAYS
Nestled in the centre of the country, bordering Tibet is one of the earth’s most special creations; the mountainous cold desert of the Upper Mustang. Only a few locations across the globe can compare to this; the Upper Mustang is one of the least visited by outsiders.
It’s a raw experience where the riding is challenging, the altitude physical and the scenery is unlike anything else you have ever had the joy of experiencing. It’s a Motorcycle Adventure paradise. This tour is not for inexperienced riders as we ride through a variety of tough terrains, so you will need a good general condition and offroad riding skills. You will experience water crossings, rocky ascents, and some dusty gravel roads.
Imagine yourself in a 500 cc Enfield motorcycle riding along the dusty gravel road in the barren treeless landscape of the Tibetan Plateau, small settlements of people resembling the ancient Tibetan culture and lifestyles, all in the backyard of Annapurna and Dhawalagiri massif. It may not sound cozy but it is a sheer adventure that may be tattooed in your memory for eternity.
