Lofty Himalayan ranges stand tall in the north, towering layers of mountain ranges extending to the valley of Pokhara. The mid-hill fields surrounding Pokhara valley are the gold mine for enduro riders, providing ideal conditions for the perfect enduro-style rides.
The hilltops are easily accessible by 4×4 trucks delivering easy uplifts. Uninterrupted downward rides from the top of the hills to the valley floor stretch for up to 4 kilometres. A band of trail builders built fast, flowy, and technical trails to conduct an International Enduro Race in Pokhara in the Autumn of 2023.
We explore and ride the trails prepared for the race in a more relaxed touring format. You can look forward to the fast, flowy, rocky, bermy and loamy trails. Take your pick on the kind of trails based on your riding abilities. The guides accompanying you on this tour are the same people who help build the trails, so you know you are in good hands. Explore this fantastic god-gifted riding heaven on your bicycle.
Day 1 – Arrival in Kathmandu + Check into Hotel + Introductory ride in the northern hills of Kathmandu.
Day 2 – Take a short 25 minutes flight to Pokhara + Vehicle pickup from the airport and hit the trails immediately without wasting any time. Return to the hotel and check in—a free and easy evening to explore hundreds of bars and eateries along the lake of Pokhara.
Day 3 – Early sunrise uplift to see the magnificent Annapurna mountains and shred the trails the whole day. Vehicle uplift will be provided if the riders want to continue riding the #POE trails at Arba and Bijayapur hills.
Day 4 – More exploration of the singletracks in the dense forest side of the mountain. Some trails stretch for up to 4 kilometres to the valley’s floor.
Day 5 – Change of riding location towards Tamagi. This part of the Pokhara offers mind-blowing gravity-led trails and a hawkeye view of the valley. For a more adventurous lot, we offer paragliding down the valley floor as an optional activity. Those who do not wish to paraglide will continue riding to the lake—finally ending the day on the side of the lake, where we conclude the Pokhara riding adventure.
Day 6 – An adventurous 200km drive back to Kathmandu on a 4×4 Mahendra truck gives you the true feeling of travelling in Nepal—farewell dinner in one of the many watering holes of Kathmandu for a night of music and booze.
Day 7 – Return flight home.
