Yoga Bike Adventure - 13 Days

Join us for this unique program of Yoga Biking Adventure among the Himalayan landscapes of Nepal. This program is suitable for organized groups of 10-14 pax and it combines a daily practice of yoga and stretching with a biking adventure in the area of Jomsom Muktinath – a biker’s paradise among the Himalayan mountain ranges. This biking trail offers a good mixture of challenging uphill, thrilling downhill and technical single track as well as plenty of local culture and tradition.

During this tour we begin our days with a gentle practice of morning yoga to stretch our muscles as well as gain flexibility and balance before we start the day of cycling through breathtaking landscapes and traditional villages steeped in local culture and history. Yoga helps to stretch our muscles, maintain stamina and prevent muscle tightness and soreness. We also gain focus, clarity and mindfulness to enjoy our adventure to the fullest.

Jomsom-Muktinath trail leads through the world’s deepest river gorge – the Kali Gandaki gorge, which splits 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.

This is a Trans-Himalayan region, protected from the monsoon by the high passes and mountains to the south. There is a dramatic change in scenery as we move north of the great Himalayan divide and we are now in the vicinity of Tibetan Plateau to witness a stark and rugged landscape. The culture here is predominantly Buddhist and we get to visit several Buddhist monasteries on this trail, one of which is a modern monastery in Marpha and one very old monastery from the 15th century, in Kagbeni.

Muktinath is the highest point of this trail at 3,710m /12,170ft and it is a place equally sacred for both Hindus and Buddhists alike. The temple in Muktinath is often called as Mukti Kshetra, which literally means the “place of salvation”. The outer courtyard of the temple has 108 bull faced taps, where the devotees take sacred baths for purification and salvation.

Lower Mustang area is a land where 8,000m/26,250ft high mountains cast a shadow over the world’s deepest river gorge. The charm of this natural beauty is enhanced by the addition of picturesque stone villages dotted along the way, Buddhist monasteries and prayer walls. This trail provides many spectacular views of the two Himalayan giants –Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri mountains with a flavor of the Tibetan like country side.
