Trip Overview

Mustang Valley, located north of the Annapurna Region and situated between Nepal and Tibet, is a remote, mysterious place with winding mountain roads. With its rocky tracks, high passes, and mountainous gorges, the road to Lower Mustang motorbike tour will provide you with the ride to remember for your lifetime. Outsiders were not allowed into the old kingdom until 1992, but now you can have a Mustang motorbike ride in Nepal that you will never regret. You will discover a hidden kingdom, breathtaking sunsets, jagged mountains, and a trip into the world's deepest valley. We'll ride magnificent elephants, tour an elephant breeding facility and learn about Nepali delicacies.

We will begin our 15-day motorcycle journey in Nepal on the route to Mustang in Kathmandu, which is located in the Himalayan foothills in the heart of a large valley. The first day of our tour will begin with a briefing, followed by a ride to the 2600 meters Kulekhani Pass to see one of Nepal's many spectacular views. The next day, we will leave Kathmandu to reach our next destination Chitwan.

We'll stop in Chitwan National Park to see some animals before continuing on to the lovely village of Bandipur and Pokhara, Nepal's most beautiful city. From there, we'll travel across the Himalayan mountains to the wild province of Mustang, which is the tour's centerpiece. There will be challenges ahead! Our drive from Kathmandu to Mustang will take us via the world's deepest gorge, Thak Khola Gorge, which connects the beautiful Annapurna (8091 meters) and Dhaulagiri (8167 meters) mountains.

We'll descend through the jungle from Muktinath Vishnu temple to Begnas Lake, where we'll relax at a resort in lakeside before returning to Pokhara and Kathmandu, where our trip concludes. This journey has it all, from rainforests to soaring Himalayan peaks, including a relaxing bath in hot springs after a day of riding through difficult rough terrain. 

Lower Mustang tour is not like your normal Himalayan adventure, your riding skill and endurance will be thoroughly tested here. In this strange land, you will feel as if you are from another planet. There are different valleys to ride through, glacier lakes to see and the proximity to the Himalayan Mountains will amaze you. The mountain people's kind souls and bright smiles will make it all worthwhile. Their friendly greetings will make you feel at ease, causing you to want to stay there for more. For any motorcycle enthusiast, the Mustang ride on the bike will be one of the best trips they've ever taken.


Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu

With a Firante Bike Adventures sign, our man in Kathmandu will be waiting for you at the airport gate. We'll then travel through a comfortable bus from Kathmandu Airport to Mugling, where we'll check into our hotel. We'll have some free time while our guide exchanges money for us, unless you prefer to do it yourself. Following that, we'll meet for a quick briefing. Our first day of Mustang Nepal Motorcycle Tour, will end with a welcome dinner, providing you the taste of local delicacies.

Day 2: Ride from Mugling – Bandipur

It's time to acquire our Royal Enfield motorcycles and familiarize ourselves with them after an early breakfast. We'll spend some time getting used to the bikes and practicing riding on it. As a warm-up, we'll drive to Bandipur, which is a small town in central Nepal's Himalayas. The route to Bandipur is a winding road as well as very quiet regarding traffic.  We'll enjoy a magnificent view of the gorgeous summits if the clouds are clear. We'll take a stroll through the old village in the evening and spend the night in the Bandipur.

Day 3: Ride from Bandipur – Sauraha - Chitwan National Park 

Today will be a day of windy roads and deep valleys. Unfortunately, there will also be heavy traffic because this route is used to transport all of Nepal's imports from India. We'll arrive in Sauraha and then take a journey to Chitwan National Park, where we'll have a full day ahead of us.

Day 4: Exploration of Chitwan National Park

Chitwan National Park was established in 1973 as Nepal's first national park. It's famous for its biodiversity, as well as for being home to Bengal tigers and rhinoceros. We'll begin our day with an elephant ride to see the wild rhinos. We will also visit the elephant breeding station of the national park. We can also take a canoe ride to the crocodile banks, if you're keen. After our dinner in the evening, we'll see a short slide show about Nepal's wildlife and enjoy the sunset over the river. A nightcap beside the campfire will help you relax.

Day 5: Ride from Sauraha – Tansen

We'll travel up to the western side of the Annapurna Massif via a 200-kilometer ride on a new as well as little used mountain road. This path offers stunning views of some of the world's most beautiful mountains. We'll go on to Tansen from there. In the afternoon, we'll eat Nepalese cuisines in the Naglo West beer garden's historic atmosphere. We'll be staying at Hotel Srinagar, which is located above Tansen and has a spectacular view of the 8000-meter Dhaulagiri Mountain.

Day 6: Ride from Tansen – Pokhara

Today we ride on the Siddhartha Highway, named after the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautam. It is a 130 kilometers journey of continuously winding and lonely mountain roadways. Our hotel will be near the lake side, making it very convenient to get to Phewa Lake in Pokhara.  We can spend our afternoon in Pokhara by relaxing at the lake or boating around Phewa Lake looking at the mesmerizing view of Annapurna Massif.  In addition to that, we can also take a short ride to a Tibetan refugee camp to visit Buddhist Monastery.

Day 7: Ride from Pokhara – Tatopani

Our Road to Mustang tour departs from Pokhara and travels to Beni today. The road is not difficult to navigate. Even ordinary public buses can transport you to Beni at ease.   Depending on the weather, the section from Beni to Tatopani may become a little more adventurous. It's not a problem as long as everything is dry. When it rains, the road becomes a mud mess. We can relax in the evening by taking a long soak in the hot springs. We'll stay in a guest house for the night.

Day 8: Ride from Tatopani – Kalopani

We'll be riding through a landslide zone today. There are a few spots that could be difficult, particularly five kilometers before Ghasa. This path has it all including steep hills, large rocks and sand. If you like this, you'll love everything else on this tour. We'll be back on safe route just before Kobang. We'll get our first look at Annapurna, one of the world's most challenging Mountain. We'll just ride between two big Mountains and cross a river on a large suspension bridge. We'll have a magnificent view of the snow-capped mountains on several occasions and we'll enjoy them.

Day 9: Ride from Kalopani – Kagbeni

Our first section of the trip from Tukuche to Jomsom should be reasonably easy, with no really steep or difficult parts. We'll cross tiny streams and then reach Jomsom, the largest town in Mustang. We depart Jomsom and navigate our way through a network of canals. Our surroundings will become harsher and more unfriendly but the sights will just get better and breathtaking. The Kali Gandaki, one of Nepal's four longest rivers, passes through the gorge and will follow us on our journey to Kagbeni.

Day 10: Ride from Kagbeni – Muktinath 

Today we'll take a ride from Kagbeni to Muktinath, where we'll see the famous Vishnu temple. Throughout the village, we will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of Dhaulagiri and the other snow mountains. We'll witness the famous continuously burning fire from natural gas as well as 108 water taps where pilgrims take a shower. It is undoubtedly a location which will be worth visiting.

Day 11: Ride from Muktinath – Kalopani

We'll return the same way today, with plenty of time to soak in the gorgeous scenery. A pleasant guesthouse will await us. It is a huge, well-run establishment with a new stone annex. What more could we want for than to relax, eat burgers, and gaze out at some of the world's most spectacular mountains?

Day 12: Ride from Kalopani – Pokhara

Today will demand the uttermost from us and our trusty Royal Enfield once more. We'll leave the cool mountain wind behind and be engulfed by the sweltering heat of the forest. We will ride down one of those fun roads on the route to Begnas Lake that could have been built with motorbikes in mind. We'll arrive in Begnas Lake in the afternoon, just in time for a sunset beverage on the lakeshore.

Day 13: Ride from Pokhara – Kathmandu

Out of our motorcycle journey through Nepal, today, it will be a short day. We'll drive through a route with busy traffic for a short distance. Extra caution and defensive riding are required here until we reach Mugling, where we'll take our van to Kathmandu to avoid the worst traffic.

Day 14: Exploration of Kathmandu

We'll begin the day with a tour of Kathmandu city bazaar, which features a unique mix of Asian marketplaces, charming temples, and narrow alleys.   A visit to Swayambhunath, the world-famous Monkey Temple perched on a hill overlooking the capital, will also be worthwhile.  Later I n the evening, we'll gather in the resort's garden for our departing meal. You will be able to enjoy the true flavors of Nepalese cuisines.

Day 15: Final Departure

After eating breakfast at the hotel, you will be taken to the airport individually based on your flight schedule. Have a safe return flight! If you want to prolong your stay in Nepal or enjoy several days in Kathmandu even before tour, we can arrange that for you.
