Trip Itinerary

Soon after breakfast we leave from our office in Thamel 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.

DAY 2: KAKANI TO MulKharla (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 keep continue to Mulkharka after the monastery premises spend enough time to absorbing the Tibetan culture here and observe the evening Puja.The trail continue goes along the den forest probably the most beauriful ride on the this bike tour. Simple Accommodation in Mulkharka.

DAY 3: Mulkharka TO NAGARKOT (22KM)
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 were part of the biking movie 'Retread' was filmed.

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. After raching the hotel, leave all bag and local trip around there for the iconice vie of landscape and panoramic view of himalayas. Overnight in hotel.

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.
