After clearing the entry fees of the national park we ride over the dirt trail into the national park and traverse along with the north sector of the valley exploring the cultural villages while riding through village roads towards Budhanilkantha – a temple devoted to Lord Vishnu.
Leaving Budhanilkantha, we will continue on our bicycle tour following the trail that includes rocky uphill ascend before riding on a smooth trail passing through Mulkharka and towards Chisapani. During our journey today we can enjoy some of the scenic views of towering high mountains and the beautiful Kathmandu valley. Our forward journey is a mostly downhill ride all the way towards Nagarkot.
However, we will ride a small uphill of about 8 km to reach the view tower of Nagarkot. The viewpoint is famous for its sunrise view and Himalayan panorama. From here, we continue on our downhill ride towards Nala village and then to Dhulikhel. We continue on our journey riding along a paved road with great views of local villages, before entering the dirt trail that leads to the Buddhist temple of Namobuddha.
From this point, we can have great views of mountain ranges that lie between Ganesh Himal and Everest. With mostly downhill riding we head towards the village of Balthali for experiencing the culture and tradition of the local village and its vicinity. Leaving Balthali our cultural ride follows a dirt trail to Panauti and then a gradual uphill climb towards Lakhure Bhanjyang.
From there we will ride mostly downhill to Lubhu and then towards the Botanical Garden of Godawari. Our bicycle tour here is followed by the ride through cultural village trails, exploring some of the oldest towns of Kathmandu valley – Chapagaon and Bungamati, towards Hattiban.

When it comes to mountain biking, gloves are most essential for grip and protection.
When you‘re riding trails and hopping down boulders, your hands need to be more or less an extension of your handlebars to maintain control.
Regular cycling stimulates and improves your heart, lungs and circulation, reducing your risk of cardiovascular diseases.
Cycling strengthens your heart muscles, lowers resting pulse and reduces blood fat levels
You don’t need mountain bike shoes. When you’re just beginning it’s fine to use normal shoes like trainers or skate shoes when you ride flat pedals.

Awesome Biking Adventure @ Kathmandu ValleyMichael [Netherlands]
I had an amazing experience while biking around Kathmandu valley with Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions. The whole Biking was a combination of road/dirt/ mountain bike trail that provided magnificent sceneries. I don't remember getting bored. We started early in the mornings and by mid-afternoon we were relaxing at our resorts, enjoying great views of the countryside. Our guide was full of local knowledge and knew everything about the places as well as bikes. If there were any problems with the bikes he was the one fixing it in no time. I would definitely be choosing the same guide if I am to go for more biking adventure in Nepal. Overall arrangement was very professional and I am totally happy and satisfied with the Nepal Guide Treks team members. Strongly Recommended Nepal Guide Treks !!

We are a group of 4 people from France and booked our Biking Tour around Kathmandu Valley with Nepal Guide Treks. After completing the biking adventure around Kathmandu, we want to thank Nepal Guide Treks and the whole team for letting us through the inspiring and intense experience of mountain biking around Kathmandu. Our guide was very energetic and always made the right decisions about starting, resting and stopping the day to day riding routines. We explored much of the valley's culture and amazing local people. It was really great riding along the up and down easy hills with great views of fascinating Kathmandu valley with high mountains as background. We recommend Nepal Guide Treks to anyone looking to acquire biking adventure in Nepal. We will come back for more biking adventure in Nepal.
