Reviews for Down hill mountain biking tour in Nepal


review 10 Nov 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Spectacular flight from Pokhara to Jomsom through the mountains, followed the next few days with biking through some quite stunning scenery in close view of the Annapurna range.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Pay attention carefully to the (comprehensive) kit list supplied up front. The range of climate and temperatures over the trip was drastic, with very cold weather indeed for the first day at altitude(Muktinath) - daytime was an unusually cold for the time of year at minus 5 C on the morning of the first biking day. Once dropping altitude however it does warm up considerably.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I think so, We used local guides extensively. The Chitwan Sapana Lodge (optional excursion) seemed to be well integrated into a local co-operative funding the village (they do however promote tourist elephant bathing etc which I chose personally to avoid).

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Very good indeed. The UK guide for the trip was super helpful at all times. With optional extra excursions offered by our tour operator if it was possible to make a well tailored and varied itinerary over my 2 weeks visit. The optional extra trips particularly to Chitwan and Nagarkot/Bhaktapur were very good. To make any criticism, some of the info supplied up front was a little misleading (The Chitwan trip I booked appeared to have included a day tour that was not in fact included in the price, plus wrong contact number for my local guide in the pre-departure info), however given the overall quality of the vacation I would consider these very minor points. I would happily recommend this trip to others.
