The travel plan presented here is divided into two impressive routes of 5 days each in a trip that includes three domestic flights in Nepal.
The first route takes us through the north-eastern sector of the Kathmandu Valley. Nepal is an eminently rural country, full of terraced crops in a mountainous environment with scattered small farms and ancient villages. This cycling tour takes you through this type of landscape on a route on which we ride almost in its entirety. Its richness is not only scenic but above all human and cultural.
The second route takes us to the lands of the Lower Mustang in the middle of an arid and harsh landscape that is at the same time impressive and breathtaking, to descend following the course of the Kali Gandaki, the mythical “black river”, or rather “the river of the black goddess”, wrapped in dense vegetation through one of the deepest valleys on earth in what was once one of the most important trade routes between Tibet and India.
On our return to Kathmandu, we propose as an option an exciting tour of the city as one of the best ways to capture its chaotic pulse while visiting its highlights.
Both routes proposed here are 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 and good technique and skill on all types of terrain as well as a certain amount of fitness. The support vehicle does not follow our route in most of the stages.
