Biking on the Valley Rim

Biking on the Valley Rim

Posted Mar 19th, 2012 under Company News, Special Events,

The Weekend Hikers from Explore Himalaya have hiked the length and breadth of almost all the hiking trails in the Valley's rim. So the last weekend, they decided to try out something different – they decided to do some mountain biking instead of hiking. For their biking adventure the group chose a 45 km route stretching from Thamel – Teenpipli – Jitpur Phedi – Kavresthali- Jhor- Tokha – Gongabu and back to Thamel, along pitched and rough gravel road. Though tiring and back breaking, according to them the adrenaline rush was worth the sweat.

Happy Explorers

Dolpo requires some extra logsistics and Pemba made all necessary arrangements. We also benefited. Both treks were wonderful! from having a local guide- Baba –in Mustang- as this is more of a cultural trek-his personal knowledge was useful.
