Namaste, This was my 1st travel to Nepal. I have been planing the trip for a long time, so I took 5 months of unpaid vacations from my job, so I could live all to the fullest. Since I've been climbing mountains for +25 years, Nepalese mountains were my main point of interests on this trip as well. After some initial hikings and climbings round Nepal, I've decided to do smth that would include a bicycle, as I'm using my bicycle in Slovenia quite often also; combining bicyling and climbing mountains usually: go with the bike + full climbing gear in the backpack till where it is possible. Then chain the bike somewhere, switch gear and climb a mountain. Then descent back to the bike and ride back home/to the car... During my staying in Nepal, I stayed in Thamel in a hotel: that was my ''base'', to which I returned for a couple of days after each action I took (laundry, gear switch, etc) & then moved on to the next action. For bicycle rental, the guys from the hotel recommended company Anapurna MTB & Adventure to me. And that was a full score: they had great bikes, and most importantly, great people/guides. I choose the bike I would rent and I decided to take the Anapurna round option. Guide Shishir was a really good fit: it was just the 2 of us on the bike trip, we had everything needed in our backpacks, so we just rode our bikes and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. We rode various distances per day, sometimes less, sometimes more. "No worry, no hurry" was our moto and no "Sir", but "Saathi" was our rule. We stayed in lodges, where friendly locals always took care of us. The food was excellent, accommodations also. Shishir was a great company, with much knowledge of the places we were visiting. We had good fun during our daily rides, but also with the locals at the end of the days, in towns on the way, where we were staying. Because of all listed, the journey seamed to end very quickly (13days) and after some other actions I took inbetween (rock & wall climbing, next hikes, visiting Chitwan, etc), I decided to rent a bicycle at Anapurna MTB & Adventure once again: that was for visiting Shivapuri national park, just outside Kathmandu and at that time my guide was Kishor. It was 1 day experience, very different to the initial one, but worth of doing it also. I must emphasise the following: my biggest surprise on my 1st trip to Nepal were Nepalese people. I knew a lot about the nature there, mountains, etc: sure, that was all even better experiencing it live. But the Nepalese people: they really suprissed me a lot: friendly, positive, happy, humble, cheerfull, always willing to assist. They made me feel as if I was among friends from the day 1. Shishir and Kishor were no different. I strongly recommend them & their company for anyone who wants to experience the beauty of Nepal from the bicycle POV + want to have experienced people around while doing it. I'm certain we are gonna do more rides together in the near future. Dhanyabaad, Shishir & Kishor, Saathi Haaru:) Greetings from Slovenia, Saso

It was a good decision to rent a bicycle and a quide ( Shishir) via Annapurna Mountain Bike & Adventure company. Im 52 years old cyclist from Finland and this was my first visit in Nepal. My plan was to ride together with cycling quide to Manang and then turn back ( part of Annapurna circuit) but without any exact itineary. We took local bus( my own choose) with my quide from Kathmandu to Besisahar and then rode by mountain bike to Manang. we carried our own equipments, so we didn`t have a porter and we slept in teahouses. It was amazing experience to visit Annapurna area and I saw and learned a lot about Nepal because of good quide. My cycling quide Shishir was in a good fit. He spoke english very well( okey my home language is finish, but I think so). We talked about all kind of things and he told me many things about local nature, habits and so on. He had all kind of spare parts for bike and every evening he took care of my bike altough I can also do it myself( he wanted to to it and do his work well). He was always ready to help me, but also other people if somebody needed help. It was relaxing to be on trail. At first when I send email to this company, I wanted only rent a mountain bike and ask some advises. I got back good reply. Later I desided to ask also a quide and I trusted this company because they had been so friendly and helpfull earlier. Thank you Shishir, Subaash and Kishor. At first

We did a 3 day MTB tour inside the Kathmandu valley, and would highly recommend it! (Although if you like biking uphill :-)) The views were great and you’re close to Nepali daily life, the perfect start of our trip trough wonderful Nepal. The MTB-tour was perfectly organised and Kishor was a very nice and helpful guide who is also very flexible. He learned us a lot about his country.

First, mountain biking the Annapurna Circuit was an adventure of a lifetime, and I would recommend Trekking Team to anyone that I would recommend this trip. However, I would recommend trekking/MTBing the Annapurna Circuit to very few people that I know. You must be in very good physical condition and be willing to admit you're not in good enough physical condition. You must be willing to overlook the dirt (dust, trash and sometimes disgusting bathrooms) to enjoy the beauty. You must be willing to explore the local cuisine to fully enjoy the adventure. You must be willing to accept the available lodging that is never much better than a nice hostel and can be not much better than a roughly built shack. You must be willing to deal with cold. If you can get over those hurdles, the adventure is remarkable. The guide and porter were excellent and made sure we were taken care of at every step of the ride. We had a shakedown ride around Kathmandu that included riding in the most amazing city traffic I've ever seen but also included quite rural riding as well. The guide, Shishir, had been on over 50 trips to the Annapurna Region and seemed to know every local we met on the trip. He choose what appeared to be the best teahouse in every town and village, and lunches were incredible. In hindsight, each day was the perfect length even if they sometimes felt too short or too long at the end of each day. Acclimatization was key to the smooth final push over the Thorung Pass, and Shishir made the process very enjoyable. Some of the trekking trails were unavailable when we were there, but the roads were surprisingly challenging. Riding was much better after we crested the Pass and required expert level skills to fully enjoy. Each day included a "traffic jam" from actual traffic in Kathmandu to common goats, horses, ducks, landslides, yaks and Kashmir goats. All in all, a great adventure!
