Annapurna Jomsom biking, starts with a 35-minute early morning flight to Jomsom from Pokhara, the important business center in lower Mustang. And next day we head north to an ancient fortress settlement on the boarder of Upper Mustang called Kagbeni. The following day is an interesting ascends through arid country up to the temple of Muktinath. The terrain here gradually looks like the Tibetan plateau providing some fascinating rock formations on route. Rather than spending overnight at Muktinath we bike back down to Jarkot village, a sample village. The following few days are spent biking back along Kali Gandaki gorge via many exciting lower Mustang and Thakali villages with a sip of apple brandy made in Marpha. On from Marpha the scenery changes into more alpine and into Tatopani where we rest for a day and relax in the hot spring pool and bike towards Pokhara.
