Unique programme of Yoga Biking Adventure among the landscapes of Nepal combining daily yoga and stretching with bike adventure in the area of Jomsom Muktinath – a bikers’ paradise among the Himalayan mountain range – offering a good mixture of challenging uphill, thrilling downhill, technical single tracks as well as plenty of culture and tradition.
The Jomsom-Muktinath trail leads through the world’s deepest river gorge of Kali Gandaki splitting the massive peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. The trail crosses through local settlements and hanging bridges, passing through wide riverbeds as well as some narrow paths of the Lubra Pass. This is a trail with spectacular vistas of the valley, hills, raging mountain river, waterfalls, rugged landscapes and of course snow capped mountains. Muktinath is a place equally sacred for both Hindus and Buddhists with its temple also called ‘Mukti Kshetra’, meaning ‘place of salvation’. Jomsom and Kagbeni are renowned as the entry point for the restricted area of Upper Mustang. From the vicinity of Jomsom the Tibetan Plateau like landscapes around the former Kingdom of Upper Mustang give a taste of the Tibetan culture and traditions in this Trans-Himalayan region, protected from the monsoon by the high passes and mountains to the south. A dramatic change in scenery comes north of the great Himalayan divide into the vicinity of Tibetan Plateau witnessing a stark and rugged landscape with predominant Buddhist culture.
