Mountain biking around Kathmandu Valley allows you to enjoy the hidden corners around Kathmandu valley that are rarely frequented by adventure lovers, giving you a chance to see the other side of the valley.

Cycling through rural villages on the edge of the valley on the back trails with a few ups and downs, this bike riding journey gives you plenty of time to soak up your peaceful surroundings and make friends with the locals.

Our bike tour includes a tour in the city to the famous and popular medieval and historical sites of KathmanduBhaktapur, and Patan, to the viewpoint - Nagarkot and Kakani, the quiet and peaceful town of Sankhu and Budhanilkantha. All these interesting places seem out of this world and yet they are so close to Kathmandu. 

This fascinating journey takes you to the little-visited area of rural pockets on and off the edge of the Kathmandu valley, cycling off-road to the paved road and through the rice terraces with magnificent views of a series of snow-capped peaks from Annapurna to Everest mountain range. 

Your wonderful 9-days biking tour concludes with exploring Balthali and the Panauti villages.

Come and bike with us on our excellent day trips for you to choose from and see the other side of Kathmandu as it was for centuries!
