Upper Mustang Bike Tour

 

With the Tibetan influenced culture, thousands of mysterious human-made caves and its exceptional landscape, Mustang has its own identity. Mostly dominated by an endless expanse of otherworldly landscape on the northernpart of Nepal towards Tibetan plateau, Mustang carries isolated and mystical vibes.The last forbidden kingdom is rich in its hidden gems and pristine native tradition where still polyandry system exists. The origin culture and Himalayan Buddhism still virgin and will let you to feel century back.

 

Biking in such religious and amazed places makes your trip wonderful. Here instantly makes you a local celebrity as children with scary wind-blown hair and apple red cheeks surround to greet you. We bike mostly along jeep tracks to reach the walled city of Lo Manthang, the crown jewel of Upper Mustang. Ride on arid landscape through immaculate Sherpa villages, meet friendly locals, admire giant Himalayan Mountains in the horizon and get on a horse when you feel like taking a break. Upper Mustang biking trip will indeed make for quite a humbling experience and a holiday of a lifetime.

 

Another attraction in the Mustang region is the Tiji Festival influenced by Tibetan Buddhism, which is celebrated every year during the end of the dry season. The Mustang people have their own way of family life, which is quite surprising for many foreigners. All the brothers in the family are married to a single girl, what you may call a practice of polyandry.
