Mountain Biking in Nepal

General Overview

Nepal offers a superb array of trails for every kind of rider, from the novice to the most experienced biker. We believe mountain biking in Nepal is all about enjoyment and having fun so we like to mix it up with technical trails, fun off road sections, long winding down hills and challenging uphill sections. Trails pass through tropical and alpine forests, rural villages, remote farming villages and small towns as well as temples and monasteries, all back dropped by the majestic Himalaya. We can even take you into the heart of the Annapurna mountain range and other part of Nepal Himalaya.

Of course, any bike trip for those bike mad people among us is about the bike, you can bring your own or hire one of ours. Travelling with a bike is no stress at all and on most airlines incurs no extra cost. Our professional mechanics can put the bikes together for you in the work shop. If you don’t want to bring your own bike we have a selection of top quality front suspensions Fuji, Giant and Trek bikes on hire.

Some more suggested and popular Day Tour Itineraries

Day Tour 1    

Kathmandu – Tinpiple - Tokha   Distance 24km

 An easy ride for anyone who wants to enjoy the lush countryside and experience the village culture around the Kathmandu valley. Depart our mid city bike shop and navigate the bustle of Kathmandu's roads, eventually rolling into her quieter suburbs. Cross the main ring road heading onto a gentle 4km incline of paved road. Cross a small pass and exit the valley. Enjoy the splendor of changing sceneries as we cruise around to Tinpiple and then head off road through the farming villages. There are a few sections of short narrow trails to tackle. Meander through the rice paddies and climb a sharp hill before crossing the river and reaching to Tokha, an old Newar settlement. Follow the narrow trial up to the temple and enjoy a picnic lunch. The remainder of the day is mostly downhill as we roll back down to Kathmandu city.

Day Tour 2      

Kathmandu –Bungamati - Chapagaon  Distance 40km 

This ride takes us back to the architecture of the fourteenth century as we explore historic villages in the southern section of the Kathmandu valley. After an early breakfast, we wind our way through Jawalkhel, Bhainsepati and head south to Bungamati, renowned for its Rato Machhindranath Temple and traditional Newari architecture. The ride continues south, climbing along a jeep track through lush forests to the village of Champi, with its stunning sweeping view of the southwestern corner of Kathmandu valley. We navigate a tricky single track section and suspension bridge to reach the picturesque village of Chapagaon. The famous Bajra Varahi Temple can be found just south of town. Although now decrepit, you will still be able to spot beautiful woodcarvings of Lord’s Krishna and Narayan. From Chapagaon we ride on an exciting jeep track, more like a roller Coaster ride to Taukhel (close to the Godavari Central Resort). Here we pick up the paved, but quiet Godavari road, which takes us down hill to Kathmandu; we'll stop in for a visit of Patan Durba Square on the way back.

Day Tour 3      

Kathmandu - Jamacho  Distance 35km 

A challenging ride for the fit rider with good off road skills.Leaving Thamel we head through about 15 minutes of heavy traffic to the ring road, crossing the ring road we head gently uphill past the Balaju Water Gardens and on to the main Kathmandu Trusili Road. Following this paved road uphill for 1km we reach the park gates of Raniban. You will need to leave a photocopy of your passport here, we will assist you with copying pre-departure. After entering the park the paved road quickly ends and turns into a rough jeep track. It’s quite flat for the first 2km, and then as we pass another check point, the road begins to climb in a series of switch backs through the jungle. Two to three hours of steady climbing with dappled valley view’s through the thick jungle brings us to Jamacho, the summit. After enjoying the views, backtrack downhill for about 2 kms, and then take a small track off to the left enjoying a superb downhill section with those amazing Himalayan views as your backdrop. This rocky and at times slippery track through the jungle will delight any serious rider. After about an hour, rejoin the solid jeep track and meander around the mid section of Jamacho Peak, before meeting the Trusili - Kathmandu road once again and recuperate whilst rolling down the remaining 5km back to Kathmandu.

What’s included in the Cost:

•    Qualified mountain bike guide
•    Picnic lunch
•    Local and government Taxes
•    Bike, helmet, tools kit
•    Any applicable entry fees
