E.M. Dyer II reports: This year, I banded together with some good buddies to do complete a trek…on mountain bikes! Our plan, Day One to get van transport from Kathmandu to Pokhara, bikes on top, stay a night in Pokhara and then swap to a Landcruiser, bikes still on top, and drive to Marpha on Day Two. Then to overnight in Marpha, do a light ride the on Day Three to get acclimated, and come back part way to Jomsom where we’d overnight again. Day Four, big climb (1000 meters up to 3500m) to Jharkot and overnight. Day Five climb to Lupra pass (3800 meter top) and descend (1300 down) to Jomsom again, and another overnight. Day Six of a 50km ride and 1000 meter descent from Jomsom to Tatopani for some hot spring action. Then back into the vehicle on the following day for the ride back to Pokhara. Laze around town and on Day Seven get a vehicle lift to Sarankot for a final descent back down to Fewa Lake. One more overnight in Pokhara and on Day Eight back to Kathmandu via the van. Fun!
