Great scenery, good guide, challenging level of difficulty resulting in a good riding workout.
definitely not for the unfit..which I was! Didn't think I would make the 29km but I did... .good look at the country side too.
This is not a tour for the inexperienced biker. I am a very fit person, walking and swimming miles each day. But I had never gone mountain biking before. The description doesn't accurately portray how difficult it will be for the novice mountain biker. This is not a leisurely ride through the country! Steep hills, rocky terrain, dogs running after you. I struggled most of the way, but made it through! The bikes are not good quality either, so be sure to bring gloves and padding if you have them, otherwise you will be very sore! But the views were stunning! You get to see a side of Kathmandu that you wouldn't get to see otherwise. The guide was kind and always made sure to stop when I was falling behind. We had a nice lunch on a hill that consisted of sandwiches, juice, and a candy bar. Also make sure to plan nothing for the following day as you will want to recover!
The bike tour route was interesting, getting outside the city on the edge of the national park. The riding in the hills is difficult because of the sand and rocky terrain. If you're not experienced riding on sand uphill your tires will spin. The tour guide was a mixed bag - at times pleasant and other times annoyed us by boasting about his achievements i.e., climbing Everest 4 times as a sherpa. The ride in the city was excellent. The ride in the hills should be billed as more difficult in the promotional literature.
