Min 1 pax
* Dates can be flexible, please contact us for individual dates.
First 26km will be on paved road though except first 4km, all less traffic and great tarmac road to the Kakani Summit. Reaching Kakani and a hot tea and a snack at the summit by the roadside shared with the locals is rewarded with a thrilling down hill as you retrace the sweeping roads below. Great views of Ganesh Himal, Lantang range and more to the east. With Kathmandu almost in sight we exit the road into the Shivapuri Forest with its tranquil jeep track, lush surroundings and wildlife. A canopy of trees makes for perfect biking on a somewhat groomed but often rocky jeep trail. An abrupt uphill completes the last 2 kms to the lookout over the capital city and a different trail leading down out of the forest. From here we’ll traverse across the north sector of the valley on some wonderful undulating village roads linking us to Budhanilkantha and then ride onto 8km on paved road to Thamel. One who are beginner, will follow the same paved road back to Thamel.
