Cycling in Kathmandu is not for beginners, but it is less dangerous than it first appears. Riding allows you to see the city from a different angle, at a different pace. While the traffic on the main avenues is heavy, other streets are quieter, off the main tourist areas where you can see the real local life.

While it can also be a one-day option, ideal for a break on the way from Kathmandu to Pokhara, you can sleep in a comfortable camp beside the river, making it a very interesting and fun two-day rafting activity. It remains an ideal extension to do on the way from Kathmandu to Pokhara, to Bandipur, or even to Chitwan.
Sunkoshi and Bhotekoshi rivers are more demanding than Trishuli, so if you really focus in rafting and you need more adrenaline, those are your white-water rivers. With long and powerful water rapids of level 3+/4-, big rocks and among amazing landscape, it can be one or more days activity from Kathmandu.
This is one of the highlights of Pokhara. Strolling around Lakeside you will see the different coloured paragliders descending from Sarangkot, perched on the hill that rises north of Lakeside, to land on the edge of the lake.
A demonstration programme of what could be an adrenaline-filled trip, practising different adventure and nature sports in the Himalayan country. From rafting to paragliding, from mountain biking to canyoning and, of course, a bit of trekking above 5000 metres altitude. Do you dare?
A trip through Nepal with two different mountain bike routes. From the forests, crops and farms of the mountainous area surrounding the Kathmandu Valley, to the semi-desert area surrounded by the high white mountains of the Lower Mustang, and then a fun descent of the mythical Kali Gandaki, following the course of the river through a deep valley of thick forests.
Cycling through the natural area surrounding the Kathmandu Valley is a good and affordable experience, starting and returning back Kathmandu itself. We cycle through rural areas, forests, crops, villages, farms and monumental world heritage villages with views of the Himalayan peaks from time to time. A very adaptable itinerary that can be either a trip in itself or part of a longer tour to Nepal.
