Hurtling down dirt roads on a mountain bike and getting an adrenaline rush is the biggest thrill for mountain bikers. And Nepal is just the country for such high spirited people adventure seekers. Beginning right here in the Kathmandu valley, there are endless possibilities for bikers.
The dirt trails up and down the valley’s edge lead to far flung settlements where one can enjoy superb views of snow capped mountains, verdant valleys and lush green terraced hillsides. The higher you climb the better the view and the clean mountain air rejuvenates your tired body. Once out of the valley, there are endless rows of hills, waterfalls and spectacuular views of mountains that loom large in the background.
Better still head for the mountains which brings extreme challenges where the terrain is rough and the thin mountain air requires you to be at a high fitness level. There are tranquil valleys to ride through, pristine glacial lakes to encounter and the proximity to the Himalayan mountain leaves you in awe. The ever-smiling people of the mountain region make it all worthwhile. Their warm greetings along the way will make you feel at home, enough to make you want to stay. It’s a great way to discover the heart and soul of Nepal.
