Mountain Bike Kathmandu to Pokhara
This Nepal mountain biking tour explores the culture and pageantry of the three tiny kingdoms of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur before heading to Gorkha. Visit the palace of the former principality of Gorkha and learn about Gurkha warriors before riding on to a Hindu temple that celebrates the goddess Kali. The bike tour ends in Pokhara, once on the trade route between India and China, and now the base for trekkers on the Annapurna circuit. You'll camp on the route so that you can ride through areas that are less frequented and unspoiled.

The ultimate mountain biking experience – ride with views of the highest mountains in the world! As you skirt along the Himalayas from Kathmandu to Pokhara you will have glorious views of the Langtang and Annapurna range and catch glimpses of Mt. Everest. Land-locked Nepal is home to eight of the world's ten tallest mountains and to more than 240 peaks over 6,000 m/ 20,000 ft above sea level.
A land of Hindu temples and Buddhist stupas, yaks and rhinos, peaks and valleys, Nepal offers up an endless number of surprises. The Kathmandu Valley was once home to three tiny kingdoms – Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur - and each left behind stunning architecture, an artistic culture and rich pageantry that you will explore before heading to Gorkha. Here, in the 18th Century, the ruler of the small principality of Gorkha formed a unified Nepal from a number of independent hill states. After a visit to the palace and learning about Gurkha warriors it is on to a Hindu temple that celebrates the goddess Kali. The tour ends in Pokhara, once on the trade route between India and China, and now the base for trekkers on the Annapurna circuit.
As you cycle from ridge to ridge you'll encounter the friendly smiles and openness of the Nepali people. You'll camp on the route so that you can ride through areas that are less frequented and unspoiled. Once out of Kathmandu you'll see very few westerners passing through – especially not on mountain bikes.
This is a spectacular ride with thrilling descents and challenging climbs, panoramic views and an opportunity to experience a different Nepal from those on the well-frequented trekking routes.
