The Upper Mustang motorbike tour is a thrilling experience that combines the adrenaline rush of off-road riding with the chance to explore the beautiful and culturally rich landscape of the region. The tour typically starts from Pokhara and takes riders through the winding roads and rugged terrain of the Himalayan foothills before entering the high-altitude deserts of Upper Mustang.

The highlight of the tour is the visit to the ancient city of Lo Manthang, the former capital of the Kingdom of Mustang. The city is surrounded by walls and gates and is home to several medieval temples and palaces, providing a glimpse into the rich history of the region.
