Trip Overview

This is real Mountain bike exploration, we know that very few mountain bikes, have visited Tumlingtar because it is far from Kathmandu. For the first three days of this trip we have no backup vehicles, so when we can't ride we carry the bikes. We fly into Tumlingtar and spend the first day getting the bikes put together after the flight. The next day we explore Tumlingtar and the surrounding villages all on the bike, since there are a lot of really nice single tracks here. Then on the third day the real adventure begins we make our way along the Arun River down to Kewabesi where we meet our support staff and from here on we camp. 
 
The rest of the trip is on a series of hard uphill climbs, and trilling down hill rides, but we can now hitch a ride with our support vehicles when the going gets to tough. This tour provides everything that makes a Mountain bike adventure, a lot of single trails, a couple of straight forward but long climbs and last but not least two long thrilling downhill rides on tarmac. We look forward to take you mountain bikers out there in eastern Nepal for some real mountain biking. 
 

Season: 

  • This ride is best done in the dry and colder month from November to March as you are constantly riding in lower altitude and the region gets very hot and humid from May to September. If you are not afraid of sweating a bit extra October and April are also great month to visit!
