It’s no wonder Nepal is a top traveling destination for tourists, adventurers, and nature lovers alike.

Furthermore, activities such as paragliding, ultralight flight, cycling tour, and sightseeing add to the country’s beauty.
If you want to enjoy Nepal’s hills and mountains, one of the best things to do is to organize a cycling trip with friends or family. Nagarkot Dhulikhel Cycling Tour is a trip into the countryside of Nepal’s city-periphery. It showcases the beauty of Nepal’s rural areas, which are embellished with natural beauty.
During your Tour to Dhulikhel, when you navigate the lush tracks stretching across the city circumference and venture into the mostly-pastoral routes, you will be charmed by the tranquility of village life and the lush surroundings. As a consequence, it is difficult to feel rejuvenated while surrounded by the noise and traffic of the city. But a cycling trip into the tame wilderness outside the city is the ideal way to refresh and relax. Discover the famous destinations of Nepal that can be reached quite easily from the capital. Experience the natural beauty of the woodlands and mountainous terrains outside the city. Refresh your senses amid the fresh air of Nepal’s hilly regions.

Moreover, the view from Nagarkot’s view tower is known for its breathtaking views of sunrise and sunset amidst the mountain peaks. Besides the natural beauty, you’ll be riding along the captivating shadows of the Himalayas.
Similarly, Dhulikhel is another feature of the Tour. By bike, you will witness an absolutely stunning Himalayan panorama as you ride to the edge of Dhulikhel hill. As you pedal your way along the verdant landscape, you will catch glimpses of prominent mountain peaks, including the Langtang Lirung, the Dorje Lakpa, Gauri Shankar, and Melungtse.
