Kathmandu valley is the first arrival destination to most of the tourist who comes to Nepal. When you talk about Kathmandu Valley, one thing comes out of the most people’s minds, a city full of temples. Every year many people come to visit these Ancient temples and many comes for Adventure tourism. But in the recent years, it has gained a reputation as being a holy destination for mountain bikers.
The Kathmandu Valley is surrounded with over 2000m hills in every direction with some of the most epic nature trails. But these jewels of valley are certainly not easy to find.
The trail consists some of the finest single tracks around the valley. We will take you for a ride on the famous trails in the north. Such as Scar route, Heavens trail and Helipad in the Shivapuri National Park. Then we will travel to Phulchoki on south and super trails of Nagarkot on east to Bhatte Danda. Nagarkot is probably most popular hill station in Kathmandu Valley. And at the end to the Chitlang on the west. You can enjoy magnificent views of the mountains.
This trip is carefully designed for the people who relatively have a short time in Kathmandu. But wish to mountain bike in these awesome trails. It is ideal for 3-4 day power-packed ride. We will have a private shuttle to lift us on most of the sections of this trip to avoid some of the longer climbs.
The Kathmandu Valley is simply a playground for the mountain bikers, who loves Enduro.
What bike should I bring for this trip, if I cannot bring my own bike, is it possible for rental?
An All Mountain or Enduro full suspension bike, fork travel from 140-150/160 would be ideal and lots of fun to play, but a good Hard-tail even with a 100mm-120mm fork can always do a job.
