We will gather information regarding managing high altitude sickness. If anyone would like to ride then please consult with a guide or team leader.

We then push our bike to the pass, and strong legs might be able to pedal on a ride-able gradient at no snow section towards the top of the pass. The more you push, it’s going to be challenging due to the thin air ( 10% oxygen) . Take it easy and enjoy every step/pedal of your trip. The four guides and two porters are there to help you so you not need to worry . Enjoy the glorious views of the mountains - the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, GangaPurna - and many others over 6,000 meter peaks.
