The sky was hazy when we made our way to Pokhara in Central Nepal.

Pokhara is the jumping off point for everyone trekking around the region and many people spend only a day or two in town before setting off.

We were considering a short trek on the Annapurna circuit after completing our Everest Base Camp Trek, but once we arrived in Pokhara, we decided that we would wait for our next trip to Nepal to do either the entire Annapurna circuit or to climb to Annapurna Base Camp.

Dave and I found that there are a lot of things to keep you occupied here besides trekking into the Himalayas and one of them is mountain biking.

We were very excited to see that there is off road riding here.

The Bike shop!

We rented our Trek mountain bikes, helmets and gloves from Himalyan Frontiers on the main street of Pokhara. We bought ourselves a map, had the owner of the shop point out some trails and set off first thing in the morning to find some epic climbs and rapid descents.

We weren’t disappointed.

"a perfect trip…….not to be missed"

This year at the end of february i went in Nepal for 18 days for the second time and i did a small trekking in the Annapurna region, I went to visit Pokhara, Kathmandu, Bakthapur and Nagarkot and I saw the National Park of Chitwan and in this trip I had the pleasure to meet Sanjib Adhikari. H...e is an independent trekking guide and tour operator in Nepal and he has already obtained trekking guide license from the ministry of tourism, government of Nepal. In his work Sanjib Adhikari is a person very responsible and serious, very helpful and attentive to his customers, he knows very well the mountain because he has many years of experience and is also an excellent guide for visiting the cities, the best thing for me is that he loves his country very much and loves his work and always manages to convey all his enthusiasm with simple ways and always with the smile. Sanjib is also a very funny person and after this experience we became a very good friend For these reasons I am very glad to report the site of Mr. Sanjib Adhikari

Really Pokhara is one of most beautiful city and unique due to big lakes and beautiful mountains Mt. Fishtail and Annapurna Range. Furthermore, Pokhara is the gateway to Annapurna Base Camp and Circuit Trekking-one of the top ten trekking trials in entire world.
