Discover Kathmandu by bike: pedal through the stunning valley, visit breathtaking temples and explore tiny towns and traditional rice paddies, immersing yourself in the beauty of daily life in Nepal.
Kathmandu Bike Tour Itinerary
After meeting at 10 am at the Hotel Marshyangdi, you'll hop onto your bike and head into Kathmandu Valley, a spectacularly beautiful historic region of Nepal that is home to many important monuments, Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage destinations and seven different World Heritage Sites. You'll be immersed in Nepal's rich cultural heritage as you explore three emblematic Durbar - or Royal - Squares; the awe-inspiring Pashupatinath Temple and the Buddhist Stupa of Boudhanath, the largest in the country.
Leave the traffic behind and delve into the Nagarjun Forest Reserve, where you'll enjoy magnificent views of the scenery, made up of staggered rice terraces, mustard fields and picturesque thatched-roof houses. Don't forget your camera - this is a sight you'll want to remember forever!
The next stop on your cycling route around Kathmandu will be Teenpipli, where you'll have the chance to contemplate the two sacred fig trees that stand here, before pedalling on to the town of Chautara. Along the route through the luscious green fields, you'll see the local farmers tending to their crops.
Prepare yourself for an uphill ride next as you take the route up to Tokha. The climb will be well worth the effort though, as you hop off your bike to admire the most incredible panoramic view over Kathmandu Valley. You'll also visit the Bhimsen Temple and the Kali Sanctuary where you'll discover some of the most deep-rooted traditions in Hindu culture and religion as you explore the village's cremation grounds.
Enjoy a well-earned break before cycling on to Buddhanilkantha, an enormous statue of the Hindu deity Vishnu sleeping on a serpent.
Your tour will end around 3 pm, returning to the centre of Kathmandu.
