Mustang: the Legendary Expedition

Your motorcycle tour in Nepal14 stages - 814 miles

temples kathmandu nepal
1/14 • Arrive in Kathmandu - Patan
You’re met at the airport according to your flight schedules and transferred to Patan. Your room is available from midday. This "City of Beauty", as the Nepalese call it, is authentic and full of life, the perfect place to spend your first day acclimatising.
meeting young locals nepal
2/14 • Patan - Chitwan
We head southwest from Kathmandu, where we truly begin to appreciate rural Nepal. The landscape changes from one valley to another as we navigate roads that wind through traditional villages and terraced fields until we reach the Terai. In the afternoon, we take a walk through Chitwan National Park’s jungle, where the abundant flora and fauna contrast nicely with the mountainous Himalayan landscapes.
river narayani nepal
3/14 • Chitwan
Today, we spend the day in the depths of lush nature. A guided safari will offer sightings of one-horned rhinos, monkeys, crocodiles, and if we’re lucky, an unforgettable encounter with a Royal Bengal tiger, leopard or bear. In the afternoon, we venture into the dense jungle and take a boat ride along the Narayani River to watch Asian crocodiles in their natural habitat.

4/14 • Chitwan - Tansen
We head northwest, making our way out of the jungle up winding mountain roads to Tansen. These roads are a real playground for our Royal Enfields! We visit a remote village, off the beaten track, perched on the mountainside where the quaint streets and locals’ nonchalance make for a relaxing setting for a stroll around after a long day’s ride.

5/14 • Tansen - Pokhara
The leg to Pokhara is beautiful. The road is good and climbs up through the lush Aadhikhola river’s valley. We arrive near Phewa Lake in the afternoon and can enjoy some free time.

6/14 • Pokhara - Tatopani
The ride to Mustang begins! After around 50 miles, we pass through Beni, where we leave the tarmacked roads behind us and the real fun begins! The track follows the Kali Gandaki river, where the valley gradually narrows and we finally catch a glimpse of the snow-capped Annapurnas, towering at more than 8,000 m altitude!

7/14 • Tatopani - Marpha
This short 30-mile leg proves that Mustang is worth it! The first stretch to Ghasa (11 miles) is the most difficult, for both man and machine: the track is rock-strewn and very steep in places, with many water crossings. The landscape is truly spectacular, giving us the energy we need to push on and move forward! We arrive at Marpha, a typical Mustang Buddhist village, in the early afternoon.

8/14 • Marpha - Jharkot
Today we explore the ancient kingdom of Mustang, an imposing territory of rocks and deep canyons, dominated by the highest peaks in the world! We cross Jomsom, the valley’s largest village, and gain altitude, passing the 3,500 m mark. We push on through this amazing mineral landscape and reach Jharkot, a medieval Buddhist village perched on a rocky outcrop. In the afternoon, we climb higher still to Muktinath (3,700 m).

9/14 • Jharkot - Tukuche
After an early breakfast we descend into the Kali Gandaki valley on a deserted track, carved into the mountainside. The view of Dhaulagiri’s summit, at over 8,000 m, is an incredible sight that almost seems too stunning to be real. We get back on the same road as the day before but head in the opposite direction to reach the first conifers we’ve seen in days, ending the day at Tukuche village.

10/14 • Tukuche - Tatopani
What goes up must come down! The descent will prove a real challenge. It’s hard to believe that we’ve already been on this track – everything looks so different when we’re facing south! Once again, man and machine are put to the test to reach Tatopani, where we can finally enjoy a chilled beer whilst relaxing in the hot springs.

11/14 • Tatopani - Begnas Lake
We enjoy the first 16 miles of dirt tracks, before getting back on comfortable smooth roads! A tasty traditional meal awaits us at Sarangkot, a popular spot among paragliders which boasts an exceptional view over Pokhara and Phewa Lake. We ride another 12-mile stint to reach Begnas Lake, a quiet, beautiful oasis where we end the day relaxing with a swim or a massage.

12/14 • Begnas Lake - Nuwakot
A beautiful long day's ride takes us back towards Kathmandu. Along the Trishuli River, we come into contact with locals on our path, which passes abundant rice paddies, pine forest and imposing gorges. We stop for lunch in the delightful village Bandipur, before continuing on to Nuwakot. We spend the night in a charming traditional house with a wonderful view of the valley.
country road nepal
13/14 • Nuwakot - Kathmandu
After a hearty breakfast served on our guesthouse’s roof garden, we hit the road for our last day of riding. We follow a narrow, beautiful road towards Shivapuri National Park before returning to the capital for lunch, where we bid farewell to our trusty steel steeds. In the afternoon, you can visit Boudhanath stupa or Pashupatinath temple. We spend our last evening in Kathmandu, in the lively Thamel neighbourhood.
