ITINERARY

YAK RU IN NEPAL

Yak Ru is among few of the toughest staged races in the world, covering a distance of 240 Km and reaching an altitude of 5,416 m in just 5 cycling days. There will be 5 stages of the race and one rest day in between at a high-altitude location to allow better acclimatization before ascending to the 5,416 m Thorong La pass. Yak Ru is an extreme mountain biking race that requires you to be prepared physically and mentally. You will encounter all nasty things Mother Nature could throw at you such as extreme cold weather, rain, snow blizzards, heat and dust.  The starting point of the ride is Besi Sahar, Lamjung district, while the end point is Kagbeni, Mustang, in the Annapurna Circuit. After the competition ends at an altitude of 3700 meters, participants will enjoy a two-day group ride along the semi-desert like terrain of the legendary Mustang valley. Yak Ru is  going to be held from 1st April to 13th April, 2017.
