Trip Overview

The republic  of Nepal has got to be the mountain biker's paradise. Whilst many of the more popular trekking areas may prove to be too extreme for enjoyable mountain-biking (as they involve arduous bike-a-hiking and are too difficult to support), this tour may just be the answer. Kathmandu at 1350m altitude lies in a valley surrounded by hills that rise to 2400m and form the middle ranges of the Himalayas before you advance towards the 8,000m white peaks. From the city, we set off on a 4-day tour of these ridge-top trails which encircle the valley's rim. A short bike ride away from down-town Kathmandu lies a delightful world of wooded slopes, small villages and hidden Temples. We follow ancient jeep roads and single-track before a most spectacular backdrop of Himalayan peaks where 8 of the world's top 10 peaks can be seen. These form the principal peaks of the Nepal Himalayas - from Everest to the Annapurnas and into Tibet.

  • Normally, our daily riding begins at around 09:00-09:30hrs and given the terrain and riding conditions for the day we plan to have clients at the next evenings accommodation by 15:00-16:00hrs. This allows time for bike maintenance, a little extra exploration on your own, settling into the hotel and drink and relax before dinner. During the day our lunch break is approx. one hour at the most scenic spot available along the route.
