World Ride has been working in Nepal for 5 years and is doing Annapurna Circuit trips, Enduro Jomsom Muktinath trips and will be making its first ever Upper Mustang trip from May 8-25, 2023. Upper Mustang is a region incredible that limits tourism to retain the cultural richness of the region. It is a land where nomads herd yaks in the high pastures, ponies carry your luggage, rosy-cheeked locals toil the arid ground for a living, where Tibetan culture is almost untouched by civilization and adds to it some of the BEST mountain biking terrain in the world. Simply put, this trip showcases the best mountain biking the Himalayas have to offer! On this trip, you will visit during the Tiji festival to experience this culture, while cycling through incredible landscapes.
