From Jomsom we start our mountain biking where we head towards the Himalaya at the north to reach the upper Mustang border at Kagbeni. En route this biking tour takes you through one of the highest pass called Thorung La pass at (6416m.). From Kagbeni you further ascend up through the arid land with Tibetan plateau like topography making the route more challenging up to the Muktinath.
