Mountain biking

Mountain riding in Nepal is a fun and sometimes difficult activity. There are many famous bike routes in Nepal that are now operational. They are as follows:

  • From Balaju in Kathmandu, the Scar Road leads to Kakani, Shivapuri, and Budhanilkantha in northern Kathmandu.
  • The journey from Kathmandu to Dhulikhel begins in Koteshwor in Kathmandu and continues via Bhaktapur, Banepa, and Dhulikhel. Continue on from Dhulikhel to Namobuddha, Panauti, and Banepa.
  • The Back Door to Kathmandu begins at Panauti and continues through Lakuri Bhanjyang, Lubhu in Lalitpur, and finally Patan.
  • The journey from Dhulikhel to the Tibetan Border begins at Dhulikhel and continues along the Araniko Highway, stopping for the night along the route.
  • The Rajpath in Kathmandu runs from Kalanki in Kathmandu to Naubise, following the Prithvi Highway. Then it’s on to the Tribhuwan Highway, with an overnight stop in Daman. Ride downhill to Hetauda from there, with the option of continuing on to Narayangarh or the Indian border.
  • Hetauda to Narayangarh and Mugling begins at Hetauda and continues to Narayangarh along the Mahendra Highway. Take a detour to Sauraha, which is close to Taandi.
  • The journey from Kathmandu to Pokhara begins in Kathmandu and continues via Naubise, Mugling, and Pokhara.
  • Pokhara to Sarangkot and Naudanda is a road that runs from Lakeside Pokhara to Sarangkot and then to Naudanda. Ride downhill to the highway from there.

Bike riding is ideal between mid-October and late-March, when the atmosphere is clear and the temperature is moderate: warm during the day and chilly at night. Riding is feasible during other times of the year, although caution should be used while biking during the monsoon season (June to September) since the roads are slick. Biking may be done on your own or with the help of Nepalese biking businesses.

You can rent mountain bikes of nearly any quality, but if you’re going on a longer or more difficult ride, bringing your own saddle is a smart idea. Daily rental prices varied from USD3 for a basic bike to USD30 for a western bike with suspension in late 2009.

Motorcycling

Nepal has some of the finest motorcycle roads in the world because to its topography and climate. The traffic is a bit clogged, but not too so, and the speeds are moderate. Even though you may never be stopped by the authorities as a tourist on a bike, you will need an international driving license in Nepal.

Motorcycle touring is maybe the finest and most unique way to see the nation. Beginners should avoid Kathmandu, but the remainder of Nepal is breathtaking. The most well-known names in the business include Hearts and Tears Motorcycle Club, Wild Experience Tours, and Blazing Trails Tours. They specialize on motorcycle tours and have an impressive collection of unique motorcycles. Professional setups with imported safety equipment, systematic training, and well-organized group excursions are available.

Canyoning

Many canyons (khola in Nepali) have been prepared for organized descents since the Nepal Canyoning Association was established in 2007. The 2011 IRC (International Canyoning Rendezvous) was held in the Annapurna region’s Marshyangdi River basin. At least 30 canyons have commercial businesses that arrange descent trips. The Nepali canyons provide magnificent views of the valleys and rice fields below, as well as a variety of difficulty and water level combinations. The majority of canyons are only accessible on foot from adjacent highways, via trails used by people for agriculture, or to go to their houses. The “Himalayan Canyon Team” outfitted one of the world’s longest and most challenging canyons, the Chamje Khola, in a trip in 2011.

Jungle safari

Elephant rides, jungle paddling, nature hikes, and bird watching are all available at Chitwan National Park, as well as more daring tiger and rhino viewing. There are also a number of lesser-known parks, such as Bardiya and Sagarmatha.

Trance parties

Near the Tibetan border, “The Run Resort” hosts Full Moon trance parties that last up to three days. Keep an eye out for posters and music stores. Pokhara has developed its own brand of Full Moon parties and unique Western interpretations of Nepali festivities.
