Nepal - Mountain Biking around Kathmandu Valley (5 days) Book Now

Price From

USD On Request

If you enjoy Mountain Biking and wish to experience as much of Nepal as possible in a short time then this package is an excellent option. In this tour, you'll 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. During these five days, we will experience all of the sights, sounds, tastes and smells that makeup life in Nepal’s ‘Middle Hills’. We will visit the historic cities of Patan and Bhaktapur, 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 bustle of Kathmandu, but so far off the beaten tourist trail.

With the mornings spent cycling above a sea of clouds, it would not be an exaggeration to call this a heaven for mountain bikers! Throughout the trip, support vehicles carrying all our gear will either follow behind us or be with us at the end of the day. Whether you ride for fun or take it more seriously, challenges lie around every corner

FAQ

  • Day 1

    Classic Trail: Patan to Panauti


    In the morning, we begin with a classic 50 km mountain bike trail through Thamel to Lubhu, climbing up the deteriorating track to the quiet Newari villages. It's a photographer's paradise due to the view of richly colored villages against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains. After a steep 500m ascend, it is wild trail downhill to Panauti, home of the oldest temple in Nepal, the Indreshwar Hahadev. Reunited with our support vehicle, which could not follow us for the whole route, we camp beside the river at Panauti. Overnight in camp at Panauti
  • Day 2

    Panauti to Dhulikhel


    After breakfast, we decide on whether to climb up to Dhulikhel or a more adventurous track which goes more steeply up through terraced fields to the Buddhist pilgrimage temple of Namo Buddha and then down to Dhulikhel. This involves a ride of about 35 km. Our camp at Dhulikhel offers fantastic sunset views of the great chain of the Himalaya. Overnight in hotel at Dhulikhel.
  • Day 3

    Dhulikhel to Nagarkot via Bhaktapur


    After breakfast, we cycle downhill towards the medieval town of Bhaktapur, where we will have our lunch and explore the historic temples and courtyards. The afternoon is a steady series of switch-backs up onto the main ridge, where we find another spectacular campsite at the hill-station of Nagarkot. Overnight in hotel at Nagarkot.
  • Day 4

    Nagarkot to Chisapani


    We continue our trail after breakfast in the morning with a sea of cloud in the valley beneath us and we can look beyond this to a mountain panorama which stretches from Makalu to the Annapurnas. The riding terrain is also superb as we slowly make our way along an old jeep track, traversing the ridges of Kattike, Manichup, and Chipu Dara. Be careful to follow the directions of the guide as there are many trails and false descent will only mean a long carry back up to the ridge! After about 40 km., we reach Chisapani, just to the north of the main ridge. We have magnificent views of the Annapurnas. Support vehicles cannot follow us along this part of the route. Overnight in the local lodge at Chisapani.
  • Day 5

    Second highest mountain Shivapuri of the valley


    Today is the final day of your mountain biking tour. We take the opportunity on our final day to climb the valley's second highest mountain Shivapuri 2732m, before descending back to Kathmandu on one of the best downhill rides in the area through Budhanalikantha.
