Unipal 2015: The Nepal Himalayas Unicycle Tour

Announcing…the long awaited Himalayas Unicycle Tour!

Nepal is home to 8 of the worlds 14 mountains over 8000m, so what better place for our next AU/Grasshopper tour than the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal? Be one of the first in the world to ride the Himalayas; marvel at the majestic giants; and whizz around Kathmandu on your unicycle.

Dates: 6 April to 17 April 2015 (with optional 4 day extension to 21 April 2015)

Cost: US $1640 (+US$400 for optional 4 day extension)

Who can come? Open to anyone who can ride off-road on a unicycle. The tour is at altitude and on a mix of 4WD and trekking routes, so expect it to be challenging. Partners/family/friends of unicyclists are welcome to accompany on bikes or on foot

Closes: 31 August 2014. Registrations after this date at discretion of organisers and dependent on accommodation availability

Smile Great choice!

Hi,
Kathmandu, Nepal is my hometown and I am so excited that you guys are going to Nepal for an adventure uni rides. I wish my husband and i could join you guys but we are going to Nepal this September, and we are going to try and ride in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and lalitpur(the three cities in the Kathmandu Valley). We are really excited about this trip. Its a short trip so we wont be able to go far from the valley.
I hope you guys have a blast out there. Nepal is a beautiful country full of adventures. Make sure you guys get some MOMo's (Nepalese dumplings). yummy!!! Let me know if you guys need some tips on where, what and how's in Nepal. I will gladly help you out.

Yeah, really looking forward to riding in Nepal, and especially Kathmandu.

One of my favourite unicycling experiences was riding my Muni around Kathmandu and getting hopelessly lost...it's such an awesome place

Hi all,
How would you transport your unicycles while travelling internationally? Would you check it in with your luggages or would you rather ship it?What is the best way? Any advice would be appreciated.

I don't think I can imagine a better trip. Too soon for me to get enough time off work but next time...
