I have done quite a few Nepal trips, but the change in scenery on this one is quite spectacular as you are just faster on the bicycles. I am not much of a climber, but I love descending, and for this it was a great trip!
I thought it would be much harder, but because of the altitude the daily distances are not that long, and pretty much everybody can make it. What makes it hard is the altitude and the technical aspect of riding, but that shouldn't keep people who are reasonably fit from signing up to this trip.

A good trip,not as hard as indicated in the brochure in my opinion. We had a laugh,on the trail and in the evenings , a small group but all had previous experience. I think as the new road develops the trip will certainly become shorter. We finished early afternoon on all days maybe a longer route into mustang would make even better trip with the same time period. I rode 98% of the trail,which was a lot more than advertised
