Manang, nestled between the towering snowcapped mountains is equally rich in ancient culture and heritage. Ancient monasteries and chortens dot the landscape giving it a feel of being in the higher ground adjacent to Tibet. The alpine vegetation and the harsh climatic conditions make this hinterland an ideal playground for adventure thrill-seekers. The abundance of trails criss-cross the entire mountains, and the span of the valley make this place a Mecca for mountain bikers.
