About The Trip

Cycling Tour around the Kathmandu valley

The Kathmandu valley cycling tour offers some of Nepal’s best mountain biking. We stay at five out of the six best outlooks for viewing the mighty Himalaya, from Dhaulagiri in the west to Everest in the east, so you will not miss what is arguably the world’s finest mountain scenery. In addition, the valley is also the historic center of Nepal, the place where palaces and temples were built and rebuilt and Nepalese art and culture were developed and refined. A combination of superb dirt trails and some single track connect the abundance of temples, monasteries and palaces making this both an exhilarating and fascinating place to cycle. This is a fun but challenging trip, suitable for those with off-road cycling experience, as some trails are technical and there are some long climbs rewarded by even bigger descent

Day 1: Arrival in Kathmandu international airport (1300 m) & transfer to hotel

Upon your arrival in the Kathmandu airport, you will be greeted by Natural Tours representative and transferred to hotel. After check in, you can either take a rest or hang around in the city depending on your interest and time constraint. In the evening, there will be a pre-trip discussion, introducing with your Tour guide. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions related to the tour program. Overnight in hotel

Day2: Kathmandu – Kakani (31KM)
after breakfast we leave for the cycling tours through the bustling back streets of Thamel and on to good wide undulating jeep tracks into jungle. Your efforts are rewarded by spectacular mountain views. We go to visit the Ranipauwa for good mountain views including Manasly (8163m) and visit the typical Tamang village and back Upwards for the seriously fit ride up to Kakani. We camp in a reserve at 2,000m to enjoy the stunning views of Ganesh Himal and Langtang, Lirung and the valley view of Likhu Khola 1,000m below

Day3: Kakani to Nagi Gumba (31KM)
Today we head off along one of the best single tracks in the valley down towards Budhanilkantha, a holy site for Hindus where Lord Vishnu is sleeping on the bed of snakes. Following the valley rim we then push our way on single-track uphill through thick forest of Shivapuri Reserve towards Nagi Gompa, a Buddhist nun’s monastery. We camp close by the monastery premises spend enough time to absorbing the Tibetan culture here and observe the evening Puja.

Day4: Nagai Gumba to Nagarkot (34KM)
this is a challenging day! We pedal through the dense jungle of Shivapuri National Park and the route to the Helambu trekking trail. We then ride down into the north-east corner of the valley, then we head on to a mix of single and jeep track to wind our way to Nagarkot. However, our route will depend on the condition of the trails. A short steep climb up to Nagarkot will be rewarded by the comfort and peaceful surrounding of the hotel where we spent our night. This is where part of the biking movie ‘Retread’ was filmed.

Day5: Nagarkot to Dhulikhel via Nala
After an early morning breakfast we have two options to ride downhill. One is to ride downhill on paved road to Bhaktapur and then to Nala or two, ride uphill to Nagarkot viewing Tower and then follow a technically steep downhill to Nala and towards Dhulikhel. Overnight in hotel

Day6: Dhulikhel to Kathmandu via Lubhu Sisneri
we ride on jeep track to the ancient city of Panauti, where Lord Buddha once lived as a prince. This special village-truly lost in time-is rarely visited by tourists. Indreswor Mahadev Temple in Panauti is the oldest surviving temple in Nepal, believed to be constructed in 1294A.D. Climbing west; we follow a jeep track along the meandering Roshi River. Beyond the town of Madhuban, we enter into a narrow pristine valley ascending 300m on superb trail to reach the summit of Kathmandu Valley’s eastern rim known as Lakhuri Bhanjyang. This is probably the oldest route east out of Kathmandu Valley, connecting the ancient cities of the valley with Panauti. What a grunt! But the views of the Himalayas are more than compensate. From the saddle, the descent is on switch-backed jeep track. After an hour and a 500m descent, we come to Sisneri, a quiet valley village. The ethnicity of the people change as we descend from Tamangs, Thakuries and Chhetris to lowland Newari farmers. We then cycle the last part of our journey from Sisneri to Kathmandu city making a quick round-about through Patan Durbar Square.
