 Program

Witness ethnic cultures of the Thakali people surrounded by spectacular mountain views. You kick-start with a ride to Pokhara, Nepal’s most chilled out lakeside city nestled in the lap of Annapurna mountains. Chill out at the Pokhara’s laid-back lakeside town or go boating on the calm waters of Fewa Lake. The ride passes through some jaw-dropping scenic countryside roads along Kusma and Baglung before hitting the dirt road built recently along the most popular Annapurna trekking trail. You stay in Lete for overnight at the Kalopani Guest House. Spectacular view of Nilgiri South from the guest house compounds. There is great food with the availability of Wi-Fi.

The ride continues through the scenic dirt road and the world’s deepest gorge along the raging Kali Gandaki river all the way to Muktinath (3,800 meters). Riding through the narrow alleys of Marpha offers insight into the lifestyle of Thakali people. You stop for lunch in Jomsom, a small town with a seasonal airport and awesome view of the Nilgiri mountains and get your permits stamped. The last lapse to Muktinath is a sheer climb from 2,400 to 3,800 meters. As you ascend to the height of Muktinath, the spectacular desert-like landscape unfolds.

Mountain views here are jaw-dropping. Villages are highly influenced by Tibetan culture and lifestyle. Explore the Muktinath and the surrounding areas on foot. Visit the holy temple of salvation with 108 water spouts where Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims come from all over the world in order to cleanse their sins.
