My “Into the Mountains Adventure ” was a truly unforgettable experience. I’m not sure I can say it any better than previous testimonials but just to reiterate: RideNepal are a completely professional operation with excellent communications before arriving in Nepal (to the point where because Grace and Udaya were in London they offered to meet with me in person to cover any questions I might have in person which was great).
Takeshi was my guide, and his pacing and instructions / explanations were spot on – I gained so much confidence over the 9 days, and having not ridden much off hard roads before, I ended up riding sections that I would not have thought I was capable of before the trip.
Immersive is a very good word for this journey. You see so much at close range, and yet cover so much more ground than you would by any other mode of transport. You meet locals as well as other travellers. The accommodation on the trail reflects the terrain, from good hotel rooms at lower levels to lodges as you get towards Manang – but you always have all you need. Words cannot do justice to the scenery and the vistas that you discover so I won’t try.
In summary, it’s the best thing I’ve done in years and cannot recommend RideNepal as an operation, and the adventure that they have created, highly enough! “Just do it” would be my suggestion!
