Great scenery, good guide, challenging level of difficulty resulting in a good riding workout.
Doing what: Kathmandu Countryside Bike Tour
This trip was operated by the Intrepid group. We had a great leader in Ram Hari Phuyal and his team. We did some serious trekking and got as high as 13,000 feet with a great view of Mt. Everest. I recommend this highly.
Brilliant trip and incredible value for money--strongly recommended!
1. I was the only tourist, and i had to travel to Chitwan by myself using the regular inter-city bus. No problem encountered, but still not very comfortable for its a long ride from kathmandu (6 hrs). Good part about the ride - lunch in a decent restaurant included, AC working (one way) and drinking bottled water for free.
2. Hotel in Chitwan. made of small bungalows - minimal comfort, power shortages frequent. But food was awesome and included in the price (3 times a day).
3. the jungle triips - excellent. Guides are professional.

Good for trekking enthusiasts. Around 6 hours daily of serious trekking through a good mix of national park, rural villages, farm land and mountaineous terrain. Average pace allowed adequate water/rest breaks and lunch to recharge. Stayed overnight in one teahouse and two hotels. Hotels were comfortable and more than expected. Teahouse was basic with attached bathroom but has no air-con and hot water, hence be prepared. Food was satisfactory. Guide and porter were knowledgable and helpful. Last day at Buktapur allowed tour of historical town and shopping. Overall a well planned itinerary.
