After landing in Kathmandu, the tour begins with a westward journey to the Annapurna foothills, where the ride will begin. The routes across the lower Himalayas are fast, steep, and flowy even before the air starts to thin. Moreover, we’ll ride alongside trekkers and yak herds on centuries-old roads through alpine Sherpa settlements as we climb higher.
