Nepal is mostly a rural country, full of terraced crops in a mountainous environment with scattered small farms and ancient villages. The cycling tour we propose in this plan takes you through this type of landscape to the north and east of the Kathmandu Valley on a route in which we ride almost in its entirety. Its richness is not only scenic but above all human and cultural.
The average distance covered by mountain bike is around 40 kilometres per day, which can be done at any pace. There is no rush or urgency. The itinerary ends with an exciting tour of the city of Kathmandu as one of the best ways to capture the pulse of this chaotic city while visiting its highlights.
This route is demanding, with long days of cycling over rough terrain, whether on the road, track or even paved roads where holes and cracks are everywhere. It requires experience, good technique and skill on all types of terrain as well as a certain amount of physical fitness. The support vehicle does not follow our route in most of the stages.
