Kathmandu Arrival | HotelAirport reception and transfer to Hotel.
Day in Kathmandu | HotelWe complete the permit process before the noon. So while we are working on that, there is time for you to make a leisurely start to the day and a stroll down to Kathmandu Durbar Square. Spend seeing the old architectures and see how overcrowded the Old town of Ason gets from the locals. By lunchtime, we check the motorcycles ad if you are up to it we can go for an afternoon ride exploring some of the trails in the north of the Kathmandu Valley.
Ride to Pokhara | HotelHave your breakfast and get ready to begin your adventure. We drive for 30 min and leave the valley from Thankot or Nagdhunga- the southern exit point. Right after Nagdhunga, it starts the hill side of Nepal where the highway bends like a snake, but not that long. Sometime this section gets notoriously busy by big trucks and public buses, but we will be OK with the motorcycles! Ride for about 45min and we reach to the valley floor where we will have better riding. On the way we can break for washrooms or have tea/coffee or even for fuel. Mungling is about 3-4hrs ride from Nagdhunga. Pokhara about 3 hrs from here with very pleasant ride!
Ride from Pokhara to Tatopani | HotelPassing Pokhara valley is amazing experience where we can have coolest sights of snow mountains such as Annapurna South, Fishtail, Hiunchuli etc. Some 6 to 7 hrs ride today brings you to Tatopani where beautiful natural hot spring pools for your dipping probably waiting for.
Ride to Jomsom & on to Kagbeni | HotelThe distance is not much; but ride slow enjoying the tranquil and even stopping for photos as it is one of the most scenic days.

Ride to Chele | LodgeAgain today, the distance is not much but wonderfully scenic day, so you might stop and take photos in several places. Another reason we are keeping short distance is considering the elevation we are gaining! But unto here we're perfect! Beyond Kagbeni, its controlled area where special entry permit is required. In the beginning at Kagbeni we complete all the registration procedures. After check lodge check in , we might hang around by the village and share how was our experience!
Ride to Ghami | HotelAgain a memorable day! Several highlighted things to see or visit. Old monasteries, long Maniwals, sweeping deserted valleys etc. Every in an interval, amidst of the desert you will encounter beautiful greenery and settlement area like an oasis in desert even that makes you pretty amazed!
Ride to Lo Manthang | HotelIt's our 3rd day in the controlled area of Upper Mustang. Ride under the blue sky and vastly open area. Hills appear but pretty dwarf, don't block the horizontal views.

Lo Manthang; a traditional walled city which once was called Kingdom inside Kingdom. There used to be a King living in the walled city. Even these days, we can the royal place and royal family with royal fame. Nothing fancy, but locals' topnotch respect. The walled city is a home of ages old several monasteries and masterpiece of wall painting, wonderful collection of old books and colophons. We spend lots of time to visit here after check in at hotel nearby.
