  • Motorbike Tour- Upper Mustang Lo-Manthang- 11 days
  • (#9590)

The journey to Nepal’s one of the most stunning destinations will keep you enchanted by the picturesque scenes of traditional villages, mountains, rivers, Kali Gandaki Gorge (the world’s deepest gorge), Rupse Waterfall (One of the longest waterfalls), countless rows of hills, and even extreme challenges when the terrain is difficult and the mountain air is thin.
The Upper Mustang Motorbike Tour is one of the most adventurous and exciting experiences to seek through the two-wheelers across Nepal’s deserted region and the forbidden kingdom.
Upper Mustang is a highly deserving, eye-catching, and out-of-the-ordinary destination for off-road motorbike trips, risk-takers, and adventure seekers. The original Upper Mustang begins from Kagbeni where the track winds its way up and down the edge of the valley. The view and adventure improve as you ascend and ascend to a higher height with the refreshing mountain air.

Furthermore, the cultural mash-up, friendly hearts, and bright smiles of the Tibetan and Thakali inhabitants make the entire biking experience worthwhile.
