Nepal, into the wild
Nepal, the birthplace of Buddha, the land of the Gurkha, and home to eight of the world’s highest mountains. It’s a country of breath taking beauty and diversity of cultures like no other place on earth. It boasts the highest valley in the world (Arun) as well as the deepest gorge (Kaligandaki) and with altitudes ranging from a mere 59 feet to Everest’s world topping 29,028 feet. They call her Sagarmatha, meaning the Forehead of the Sky.
Traveling from the south to the north, in a span of only 100 kms, you can go from hot tropical conditions to snowclad mountain peaks. It’s a land of unrivalled beauty but extreme hardship. In spite of this, the Nepali people are friendly, warm and welcoming. They are fiercely proud of their traditions, religion, music and culture and have huge respect for visitors to their country.
We start our motorcycle tour in the hot, dusty and fabled city of Kathmandu that has been forever on the wish list of every traveller.
From the smooth flat highways of the Rhino and Tiger inhabited lowlands of Chitwan and to the stunning and challenging forest trails that ascend the foothills of the Himalayas, it’s epic all the way.
Kathmandu, Nagarkot Hill Station, Chitwan National Park, Pokhara and the Mustang Valley. You’re going to see a lot of Nepal.
We ride alongside glacier fed rivers and past centuries old temples. As we enter the Kingdom of the Mustang Valley, we pass through remote and forgotten villages as we navigate ancient pathways. The trails seem to extend endlessly northward and toward the immaculate white peaks of the breath taking Annapurna mountain range.
When you add to this the excitement of the unknown, you’ll suddenly find yourself in the middle of an irresistible motorcycle adventure.
These are the moments we live for.
