Are you an avid biker? Are you the type of person who wants to travel the world riding your bike? If you are then you are in the right place. We have come up with this unique Biking around Annapurna package especially for people like you. With this package, we want to provide the thrill and adrenaline rush of Nepal's Annapurna Region while riding a bike.

Annapurna Circuit is one of the most popular trekking routes in Nepal with thousands of people from all over the world coming to Nepal just to trek there. However, throughout the years, the route has become quite normal and stereotypical. So, to bring back the spark and excitement back in the Annapurna region, our experts designed this Biking around Annapurna package.

As you arrive in Nepal, you will spend the night in Kathmandu and the next day, you will head towards Besisahar. After staying overnight in Besisahar, your biking journey begins the very next day, your very first destination being Chame. For the following few days, you will ride to different popular locations of the Annapurna region like Manang, Thorong Phedi, Muktinath, and even ride higher to Tatopani. Moreover, while you enjoy the pulsation in your legs after riding for hours every day, you will also get mesmerized by the gorgeous scenery of the Annapurna region including the soaring mountains, the forests and much more. You will also feel refreshed after tasting the popular juicy apples of the Mustang region and other apple products like wine and apple pie. On the other hand, all your fatigue from biking for hours will vanish as you take a dip in the natural hot springs of Tatopani. This 14-days guided biking trip is indeed very unique and perfect for an adventure junkie or even a nature lover. However, this is quite a strenuous trip, so you will need to be fit for this journey.

Despite the toughness and hard work, the trip is totally worth it. So, what are you waiting for? Hurry up and book this trip for yourself and ride into the wilderness of Nepal's infamous Annapurna Region.

The rooms are typically small with twin beds, clean blanket, pillow and bed sheet. Normally people tend to carry their own sleeping bags for sanitary reasons. The only area, that is usually heated is the dining area, so be ready to face some cold night. Toilets in teahouses are typical squat-style and are very small but clean.
