You have not experienced the adventure and the rush of adrenaline if you haven’t gone motor biking in the mountains of Nepal. For all the thrill junkies, Manang is one of the best places to experience the ultimate biking adventure. Manang Motorbike Tour takes you to the beautiful Manang valley with its many waterfalls and natural hot springs to ultimately reach the beautiful Tilicho Lake. With off roads that are some of the most dangerous in the world and with views to die for, Manang Motorbike Tour is not for the faint-hearted.

This motorbike tour will begin in Kathmandu and take you through the valleys and deep gorges offering majestic views of snowy mountains. Wild, rugged, and beautiful, surrounded by the Annapurna and Manaslu Massif, the valley of Manang is home to the Manangi, many of whom are prominent traders and hoteliers. The Manangi follow a semi-nomadic life and horse riding and archery are the famous activities in this region. Mostly Tibeto-Burman, the Buddhist tradition, and cultural richness can be seen in the many monasteries and through the innumerous prayer flags spread all across the region. Harsh terrain and quite a distance from the nearest town is the reason behind the preservation of these cultures and the pristine natural beauty. Uphill and downhill alongside rivers, waterfalls, and streams, you make your way to Tilicho Lake, which is one of the most beautiful lakes situated in the lap of the Annapurna (8091m). Brief stops at the villages like Manang, Pisang, Chame, Timang, and so on are bound to make riding through the tough terrain a worthwhile experience.
