For ages, Nepal has served as the hub of the spiritual universe. Eight of the ten tallest mountains in the world, including Everest, are found in Nepal, making it a popular destination for adventurers of all stripes. The Himalayas’ most extensive stretch is located in this little nation, which is situated between India and the Tibetan Plateau. As a result, the country’s height is more important than its length. So, cycling has become one of the must-try activities when you visit Nepal.
Let’s start with Kathmandu. It is the hub of all things Nepali, and where most people go to get their bearings and the country’s capital. You can rent bikes here, get your supplies, and travel to the Himalayan foothills. While traveling by bicycle from Kathmandu to the historic cities of Gorkha and Pokhara, you can stop to admire Everest and the Annapurna range while passing through isolated mountain villages.
There are parts of Nepal that have just recently been made accessible to international tourists, like the Mustang Valley, where you can now bike through the Kingdom of Lo to see some of the oldest Buddhist traditions anywhere in the world.
Not everything in Nepal is uphill or downhill; most bikers find the Kathmandu Valley to be surprisingly accessible. The fertile plains offer easy cycling with possibly the world’s most breathtaking scenery. The intensity decreases in southern Nepal as the Himalayas in the north start to resemble the northern Indian jungles, making for a more tranquil journey that is rich in both Hindu and Buddhist heritage.
Cycling in Nepal, a country with a tiny but diversified geographic area, is gratifying in many ways. The long-standing culture and traditions of the people of Nepal allow you to truly nourish your spirit while admiring the most stunning mountain range in the world. So, here are a few of the trails Pokhara Info has to offer for you.
Along the Mountain Trail
These days, it can be difficult to uncover undiscovered single tracks in Nepal, but only if you don’t know where to search! Some of the best mountain-riding terrains in the area may be found in Solukhumbu, a region of the lower Himalayas under the shadow of Everest.
The local Sherpa people and their sheep created a wide network of routes that have transformed the area into an amazing mountain biking playground with a ton of variety, boundless views, and terrain that is both tough and thrilling. Embrace the experience as one of the first mountain bikers to explore this unexplored section of the Nepalese Himalayas.
Experience authentic Nepalese enduro riding outside of the bustling city of Kathmandu. The trek then starts to the lower Himalayas, where an undeveloped single-track is waiting. Before climbing Pikey Peak and enjoying the breathtaking view, you’ll go through woods and Sherpa settlements on a variety of terrain and paths. From there, you’ll cruise all the way down. Yet, there are still a ton of single-track and enduro routes to explore before taking an incredible flight back to Kathmandu.
Everest Enduro is unbeatable for the daring mountain biker looking for a ride that offers the most of everything. With the beautiful Himalayas as a backdrop, you may ride through rocky climbs, terraced mountaintop farms, on tiny, winding trails through the jungle, and on spectacular, wonderful downhills.
Mountain Shadow Trail
Although several mountain bike trails claim to be the best in the world, only the Kali Gandaki Valley trails in Nepal’s Mustang region can make the claim that they are surrounded by peaks that are five miles high. You’ll spend each night in teahouses owned by neighborhood residents that are filled with delectable food and regional libations.
The Kali Gandaki Valley, the deepest valley in the world, combines the magnificence of nature with regional culture and a level of relative luxury that is unmatched anywhere else. These challenging climbs, technical descents, fast, flowing singletrack, and the most breathtaking vistas you can imagine are all part of this mountain biking trip in Nepal, on the roof of the globe.
Also, the ride for this between Pokhara and Jomsom will be amazing.
This mountain biking vacation in Nepal will transport you to some of the most stunning and uncharted locations on the planet, where you will experience the most emotional mountain biking of your life. You will ride the trails of the fabled Annapurna Circuit and the lower Mustang region, at altitudes ranging from 1,500m to 4,000m (4,900ft to 13,000ft).
You will experience some of the nicest places you have ever been while cycling in the Mustang region. The experience is further enhanced by the distinctive local traditions, way of life, and culture. For tourists who want to see authentic Tibetan culture as it was in the past, Mustang offers a fantastic alternative. The Loba (Lo Pa) people are ethnic Tibetan and practice a kind of Buddhism from the Sakya lineage.
Off the beaten Himalayan Path
As you cycle by remote villages, historic cities, and undiscovered temples, enjoy exhilarating downhills and enjoy breathtaking views of Everest, Annapurna, and other peaks, the tour will give you an interesting cross-section of Nepal. See life in the middle hills where the Nepalese continue to live as they have for many decades, watch the morning break over the Annapurnas, and enjoy luxurious lodgings.
Before continuing on to the final destination, you’ll take an interesting journey that takes you through the Kathmandu valley’s ancient cities and temples to the royal city of Gorkha. To make your vacation as comfortable as possible, we include transportation assistance, first-rate lodging, and all meals. The paths are relatively reasonable and only call for the rudimentary knowledge necessary to walk and bike on jeep trails. This is a “all-inclusive” adventure; everything is supplied, from the creative lodging and delectable meals to the cycling guides, car support, and well-kept bikes.
You only need to peddle and have fun! Everyone will be able to cycle farther and still be happy at the end of this incredible adventure!
