Day 1 Kathmandu

Day 2 Nagarkot 30km 2.5hrs riding time approx.

Today there’ll be a lazy morning to recover from any jet lag and hang around the hotel or get out for a wander in the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. Around midday we’ll get going and begin venturing outside Kathmandu towards Nagarkot on the valley rim, where fantastic views of the mountains lay ahead. You’ll be able to relax with a swim at Club Himalaya which resides on the hilltop, being the best location for views of the valley and the Himalayas.

Day 3 Besi Beach Camping 112km ( 3.5hrs riding time approx.)

Just tarmac roads today, with 10% being broken sections. Still definitely thankful for our off-road* bikes when we hit these parts! We’ll wind our way downhill through forested roads and come out by the Sun Kosi River (River of Gold). It’s a beautiful road alongside the river with the wide river valley meandering through the 2000m+ hills. The sun will be on our backs as we travel the busy road filled with colourful and pimped up trucksand buses.

Day 4 Pattale 124km (5hrs riding time approx.)

A bit more of a challenging ride today as we increase our altitude and head to our Everest viewpoint destination. The Sun Kosi stretches out beneath us as we wind our way up the hillsides into the Solukhumbu region. Many switchbacks lay ahead and some river crossings too. It’s a wild and beautiful  journey that will take your breath away. You will arrive in time for the sunset view from your hotel of over thirty-nine peaks of the Himalaya, including Everest.

Day 5 Phaplu 40km

Today you are free to choose what you would prefer to do, whether that is hiking, trying out some dirt tracks of the 3000m+ hills or biking to a secluded and very important Buddhist monastery. Tonight we stay in the larger mountain town of Phaplu, an alternative start point for climbers of Mt. Everest.

Day 6 Mulkhot 143km (5.5hrs riding time approx.)

Today we leave the peaks behind us as we travel back down on the high altitude roads with dramatic looking drops around us. The temperature slowly rises as we descend back down to the valley floor. We’ll stop for lunch at a roadside restaurant where the familiar and freshly cooked dhal bhat tarkari (lentil soup, rice and vegetables) will fuel us on our way. Only small villages are scattered along this road, we’ll stay in the small town of Mulkhot at a basic hotel tonight.

Day 7 Dhulikhel 67km (2hrs riding time approx.)

A short ride today to the town of Dhulikhel situated on top of a ridge renowned for its beautiful mountain views, and often frequented by tourists wanting to catch a glimpse of the majestic Himalayas. Dhulikhel is not far from Kathmandu, originally a small Newari town, now developed to a larger, dustier and slightly chaotic highway town.

Day 8 Haatiban 42km (3hrs riding time approx.)

Today we ride on dirt tracks around the Kathmandu valley for a 4-5 hours exploring the lush green hillsides and the countless trails, before landing up at our hillside hideaway at the edge of a fresh pine forest with views of the whole of Kathmandu valley.

Back to Kathmandu today for sightseeing and souvenir hunting.
