Trip Introduction

Kathmandu valley mountain bike tour offer one of the most energetic, colorful, chaotic and cultural experience. The magical kingdom of Nepal has got to be a mountain biker’s paradise. Whilst many of the more popular trekking areas may prove to be too extreme for really enjoyable mountain-biking, this tour may just be the answer. Kathmandu, at 1350 metres in altitude, lies in a valley surrounded by hills that rise to 2780 meters. These are part of the middle hills of the Himalayas, the ‘foothills’ of the 8,000 meter white peaks. From the city, you set off on a 5-day tour of these ridge-top trails which encircle the valley rim. A short bike ride away from down-town Kathmandu lays a delightful world of wooded slopes, small villages and hidden temples. You ride jeep trails and ancient single-tracks against the most spectacular backdrop of Himalayan peaks.
