What people are saying about our adventures
Mountain biking is a great possibility to explore Kathmandu and the surroundings. By bike through the city, you will be part of the unique traffic and see some of the temples and other sights. I especially liked the old city center with decorated streets and some traditional houses. When I reached the top of a hill outside the city I had a fantastic view over the valley and enjoyed looking back on our route. The downhill back into the city center was well-deserved! Above all, seeing the Himalayans on the horizon for the whole day was the icing on the cake!
Mountain Biking in Mustang Nepal with Five14 is one of the most incredible things I’ve ever done. The riding was sick and the location was unreal; we rode on the lower slopes of the world’s tallest mountains in a pristine wilderness that ranged from high desert to lush forest, all crisscrossed by massive rivers. The Five14 guides were awesome, very professional, and great at supporting the team. We met great people at the tea houses we stayed in along the Annapurna Circuit and ate very well at all of them. This was a fantastic trip, it was such an amazing place just to be, and riding it was unbelievable.
Amazing. On both occasions that I had the pleasure of partnering with Five14, I had a truly great experience. I would recommend Five14 to anyone who wants to explore with a purpose.
