The tour starts by climbing out of the Kathmandu Valley to ride through shady pine forests with stops along the way at remote temples, and to learn about the various kingdoms that comprised Nepal. You'll cycle down to the tropical lowlands where the fertile rice fields are still attended to using traditional farming traditions. You'll spend a rest day on a canoe, and explore the wildlife at Chitwan National Park before continuing on to the sacred birthplace of the Lord Buddha. A visit to the Newari city of Tansen will provide cool climes before you again descend to Pokhara, the base for trekkers on the Annapurna circuit. After a ride around the lakes of this region you'll have a spectacular flight back to Kathmandu.

A cycling holiday in Nepal is the ideal way to discover this beautiful and diverse country. The scenery is ever changing on this relaxing ride through the lowlands where you'll meet friendly villagers and have plenty of time to take photos. This tour also takes time out for some gentle hikes, including one where you'll meet your bike at the end for a exhilarating descent.
