Kathmandu Cultural Mountain Bike Tour 

Thamel to Pashupatinath – 5 km / approx 30 min
Our journey began from Utmost Adventures head office in Thamel. Your trip begins with ride to Pashupatinath. We explore around Pashupatinath. We ride through small local market street in Asan then we take through the busy road to Pashupatinath about 5 km. 

Pashupatinath is one of the four most important religious pilgrimages in Asia for Shiva devotees. Pashupatinath, dedicated to Shiva, the Destroyer, is the most revered Hindu pilgrimage in Nepal. Although the Pashupatinath Temple was only built in the fifth century and later renovated by Malla kings, the holy site is said to have existed from the beginning of the millennium.

Pashupatinath to Bhaktapur Durbar Square – 15 km / 1 hr
We continue riding through local village, we find small road which cross through small town beside the international airport. We try our best to avoid traffic and main highway in which you can see different culture and life style. 

Bhaktapur Durbar Square is located in the center of Bhaktapur. The Square is one of the most charming architectural showpieces of the Valley as it highlights some of the finest medieval arts of Nepal. The main items of interest in Bhaktapur Durbar Square are the Lion Gate, the Golden Gate, and the statues of kings on stone monoliths. The Golden Gate was erected by King Ranjit Malla as the entrance to the main courtyard of the Fifty-five Windowed Palace. 

Bhaktapur Durbar Square to Changunarayan – 6 km / 40 min 
We continue riding to Changunarayan Temple, one of the most famous Hindu temple situated on top of the hill. First part is easy ride once you are half way to Changunarayan the trail start climbing uphill till you reached to the temple. 

Changu Narayan is the temple of Lord Vishnu,the Preserver, in the village of Changu in Bhaktapur. The origin of Changu Narayan goes back to the fourth century. A fifth century stone
Inscription in the temple proclaims it as one of the oldest shrines of the Kathmandu Valley. The temple is believed to be sixteen hundred years old. It is embellished by the best examples of stone, wood, and metal craft.

Changunarayan Temple to Boudhanath Stupa – 10 km / 90 min
We follow off road downhill to Sankhu Road then continue riding to Boudhanath Stupa, 
Bouddhanath is the center of the Tibetan culture in Nepal. The 36-meter-high stupa of Bouddhanath is the largest stupa in South Asia. Bouddhanath Stupa was renovated by Licchavi rulers in the eighth century. The mandala design of Bouddhanath is said to be a copy of the one in Gyangtse in Tibet. The stupa is located in the area of ancient trade route to Tibet where Tibetan merchants rested and offered prayers over many centuries. When refugees entered Nepal from Tibet in the 1950s, many decided to live around Bouddhanath. Hence, a complete township has developed around Bouddhanath.

Boudhanath Stupa to Thamel - 10 km / 1 hr
After Boudhanath we ride back to Thamel.
