Day by Day Itinerary

Once you arrive at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport we will pick you up directly from the airport and transfer you to your hotel. Amidst all the chaos lies ancient stories of warriors, rivaling dynasties and great spiritual masters. This legendary capital city is home to an eclectic mix of people, shops, restaurants, temples, stupas, myths and legends! *Remember usually flights are overnight so you should allow an extra day for the journey to Kathmandu.

Meet your trusty steeds and road captains for for the trip today. We ride north along the Trishuli River on a jeep track towards the Chinese border. Road conditions will be a mixture of paved and unpaved with some sandy sections. Syabru Besi is a small mountain village sat near to Gosaikunda and below Dhunche. The ride will be challenging so kick back at the lodge tonight after some epic biking.

After a healthy breakfast of perhaps fried eggs and pancakes we ride to Gatlang. We increase our altitude today as we cross mountain passes near the Tibetan border. Gatlang is mainly a Tamang settlement, an ethnicity which has strong roots in Tibet. The village is very traditional and daily life involves looking after the herds of yaks and sheep and subsistence farming. 

In the morning we wake up to a mighty view of Langtang Lirung (7227m). We ride on the local jeep tracks through alpine forests up to Pangsang pass which affords superb mountain views of peaks such as Ganesh Himal.

We head to Nuwakot today along most of the same trails, but in reverse. Nuwakot is a built up town sitting in a valley lower than Kathmandu. There is the Nuwakot Durbar sat just above the town, the old palace fort historically was a crucial trading point for Malla Kings of the Valley. Standing strong for over 1000 years, there is lots of history here, not to mention the recent unification of Nepal by Prithvi Narayan Shah.

We head south along the Trishuli river towards Galchi then head up on one of the oldest highways in Nepal to Daman. A day of many switchbacks and changing sub-tropical scenery. Daman is known for it’s panoramic views of the Himalayas extending up to 400km.

We head back to Kathmandu on your final day of riding. Delivering your wheels safely home and stepping back on your land legs, an evening celebrating your epic Himalayan adventure & perhaps some comfort food!

Time to say farewell to your guides and to Nepal. Ride Nepal will arrange for you to be transferred back to the airport in time for your onward flights. Bon Voyage and hope to see you soon!
