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.
