Cycling Tour In Nepal
The Kathmandu valley offers some great mountain biking trails. We travel along little-used dirt roads away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Only a short bike ride away lies a delightful world of wooded slopes, small villages, hidden temples and the views which include all of the principal peaks of the Nepal Himalaya - from Makalu to the Annapurnas providing some excellent, easy to semi - technical single track riding along old jeep roads. Throughout the trip, we will experience all of the sights, sounds, tastes and smells that make up life in Nepal’s 'Middle Hills'. We will visit the historic cities of Basantapur, Bhaktapur and Patan; hill resort of Nagarkot with its sunrise view of the entire Nepal Himalaya and the temples; monasteries and picturesque villages tucked away in the forests along the way. We are so close to the chaos of Kathmandu, yet so far off the beaten tourist trail.
This is a fun but challenging trip, suitable for those with some off-road biking experience, since a couple of trails are technical. There are also some long climbs rewarded by even bigger descents. With the mornings spent cycling above a sea of clouds, it would not be an exaggeration to call this a heaven for all levels of mountain bikers!
This Biking tour takes you around the rim of the valley that contains capital city Kathmandu. It transverse to the northern rim of the valley taking in all the high points for spectacular mountains views of Ganesh Himal, Langtang and Everest. Not only does this route take in the mountains but also Kathmandu’s exotic and sometimes erotic architecture, holy-men, temples and culture. It may a unique experience not to be found anywhere else in the world. A lot of the trails are challenging and for the serious for recreational riders. The biking tour passes through a nun’s monastery and continues riding through the thick jungle of Shivapuri towards Nagarkot. Further, we go to an old Newari town and re-enter the valley through a high pass called Panouti and ending our tour in the Kathmandu. We “Nepal Mother House Treks” are glade to arrange this tour itinerary on your own design also.
