What You Can Expect

Kathmandu Valley Single Track Mountain Bike Tour

Statue of Lord Vishnu at Budhanilkantha

Your guide meets you at your Kathmandu hotel to start your mountain bike tour.

Travel about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) on paved roads out of Kathmandu before you reach a 1.5-mile (2.4-km) climb to Mudkhu. There, stop for a cup of tea, then continue biking to Tinpipple. Follow off-road jeep tracks and smaller trails that pass through villages and vibrant green rice fields, providing a closer look at rural life in Nepal. Soak in sweeping views of Kathmandu from a trail that hugs the valley rim, then arrive in the ancient town of Tokha.

Take a break for lunch at the temple in Tokha. After lunch, hop back in the saddle to pedal to Budhanilkantha where you visit a sacred Hindu site that features a 1,500-year-old stone statue of the sleeping deity Vishnu. Afterward, continue about 45 minutes to arrive back at your hotel in Kathmandu.

Expect to ride for about three to four hours on a route that includes paved roads and dirt trails. The total distance is about 20 miles (33 km) on a moderately challenging route that combines paved roads and rough dirt tracks, and short steep climbs with stretches of smooth downhill.
