Nepal is a beautiful country. The country has much to offer in aspects of tourism. Trekking and mountaineering always had been the topmost activities done in the region but due to the creation of vehicle tracks biking is also the most enjoyed activity in some regions. Upper Mustang biking has gained a lot of popularity in recent days. Amazing terrains, combined with breathtaking views and thrilling experiences, make this journey one to remember for a lifetime.

Biking has been the passion of bikers since the creation of the machine in the previous century. People love to travel on this two-wheeler. It is also very efficient as it can swiftly take you to even the remote location as it does not have big tracks to get through, unlike the large vehicles. Also, the off-road bike can easily get through even the ways that are very difficult, unlike the big vehicles. Also, biking is the passion and dream of many people, especially of the people of this generation.

Mustang is a district of Nepal that is located in the Gandaki province of Nepal. The province has eleven districts, and it is one of them. This district always has been one of the most special districts in the country. Being in the region of tourism, a unique lifestyle, the desert-like appearance, unlike most other parts of the country, makes the district extremely special.

The headquarters of Mustang in Jomsom. It is the first largest district with respect to the area. Despite this, the district is one of the lowest populated districts. According to the census of 2011 A.D, there was a total of 13452 people in the Mustang region of Nepal.

Mustang is also known as the forbidden kingdom of Nepal. The district surrounded by Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and the Tibetan plateau is unique in many ways. With strict policies and rules, the traditions and culture of the Mustang region are preserved till now. Mustang was a restricted region in the past and no people from outside could go into the Mustang region without permission.

The authority to visit the upper Mustang was given very recently in 1992. Before that, it was illegal for outsiders to go to the upper Mustang. Until recently people had not visited there, and people of that region also not gone anywhere else so, the tradition and culture of the upper Mustang region are intact. Also, there is a King in the Mustang region of their own, which is why it was called a kingdom. Also, it was a restricted region, so the name forbidden kingdom.
