    Option 1 : 1 Night / 2 Days 

    Day 1: Kathmandu-Nagarkot
    After an early morning breakfast in Kathmandu, we ride due east to the medieval town of Bhaktapur. Bhaktapur is an ancient city, full of Newari culture. There are many temples and squares here that we will have time to explore. From here we head northeast to Nagarkot on an excellent and quiet tarmac road. We gradually climb 20km to Nagarkot, on the valley rim, passing steeply terraced farmland and houses that seem to be clinging to the hillside. When we reach the summit we will be able to see the Himalayan mountain range and on a good day, mount Everest too. We stay in a guesthouse on the ridge. 
    Distance: 38km 
    Altitude: 2000m 


    Day 2: Nagarkot-Kathmandu
    (34 - 40km with 650 m. descent) 
    The day starts with an exciting descent on Jeep tracks. We pass through many rustic villages, Himalayas in the right on clear day! We reach the beautiful ancient village of Shanku. From here we are on tarmac road towards Boudhanath Stupa, here we will have lunch and then ride back to Kathmandu or ride towards (Budhanilkantha) Sleeping Vishnu temple and then to Thamel. 
    Distance: Approx 40kms 
    Maximum Altitude: 1340mts 

     

    Option 2 : 5 Nights / 6 Days

    Arrive in Kathmandu and transfer to your hotel, there will be a tour briefing before dinner. O/N guesthouse Sh 

    Day 2: Kathmandu-Nuwakot 
    After leaving the chaos of the city we head towards Narayanthan, where you can stop to see the magnificent sleeping Vishnu temple. We then carry on biking on the outskirts of the Shivapuri National Park. The Langtang Range can be clearly visible depending on the time of the year and clear weather of course. We check our brakes and gear up for a 950 mts descent all the way to Likhu Khola. After some refreshments we head towards our day I destination Nuwakot. (900mts) 
    Nuwakot: Nuwakot is a quaint mountain district with breathtaking views of the Trishuli and Tadi valleys situated 76 kms North West of Kathmandu. Nuwakot sits 2970 feet above sea level and is home to a diverse array of ethnic groups; the largest of which are the Newars, followed by the Tamangs. The area is historically known for the palace created by Nepal's unifier, Prithvi Narayan Shah, who chooses the area for its strategic hill – tops views of Tadi and Trishuli rivers. These rivers are considered the gatekeepers to the main trade into Tibet via Kerung. Some of the other places of interests are the Taleju temple, Saat Tale Durbar (seven storied ancient palace) and the Nuwakot durbar square. 
    Total Distance: 45Km 
    Altitude: 900 mts 

    Day 3: Trisuli-Dhading Besi 
    We gradually climb 3 Kilometers from the starting Point to Raisingh, all the roads are Turmac. From the starting point to Samari most of the ride is a gradual climb. As we ride we can see the local villagers engaged in farming Potatoes, Cauliflower, Carrot, and Cabbage. Etc. The farmings are spread out on open farms unlike terrace farming. From Samari to Taskar the ride is mostly on rocky track then Taskar to Ratomate is mostly dusty Jeep track. Waling Danda to Dhanding Besi is more or less like a cross country trail and easy to ride. (7 Km) Dhading Besi is like a small city, where the people from the neighboring villages come to buy the basic necessities. The people that make up these villages are of mixed cultures and casts. 
    Total Distance: 45Km 
    Altitude: 550 mts 


    Day 4: Dhading Besi-Gorkha 
    From Dhanding Besi to Murali Bhanjyang, it is all tarmac roads. There are few local shops but nothing fancy. From Muralibhanjyang we begin riding on a jeep track. From Tallo Rampur we can see the Nepal Second largest Tar. Mathillo Rampur to Tallo Rampur is mostly all dusty, downhill. We carry on riding passing Bunkghat; you can also see local villagers engaged in farming different crops and vegetables. 
    GORKHA: The birth place of Prithivi Narayan Shah, conqueror of the Kathmandu Valley and founder of modern Nepal. The main attraction here is the Gorkha Durbar (palace) the former palace of the Shahs, which lords over Gorkha from a precarious ridge over the town. 
    Distance: 54.5 Km 
    Altitude: 1110 mts 


    Day 5: Gorkha-Sunder Bazar
    Today is more like a cross country and easy ride. From Chhepetar we can see lots of Banana trees. It is just a small village. There are newly built houses and few old houses on the sides. Okharelisankhu to Garam besi this is like different parts because Okharelisankhu is in Dhading District and Garam Besi is in Lamjung district. It partition from one small flexible bridge (Jholunge Pool). Most of people in depend in farming. 
    Distance: 54.3 Km 
    Altitude: 675 mts 


    Day 6: Sunder Bazar-Pokhara 
    Sunder Bazaar: From sunder bazaar we can see Machhapuchhre Himal nicely. Lots of mixed cast people live around here.Begnas Tal (lake) also happens to be the second biggest lake in the country and compared to the other lakes this one is more calm and peaceful. 
    POKHARA: Pokhara is the starting or finishing point for some of the Nepal’s most popular treks such as the Annapurna Circuit, The Jomsom Trek and the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. Its fame rests on the natural beauty of its lakeside location and its nearness to the mountains, not on a great historical or cultural endowment. 

    Picturesque villages, gently rolling chains of hills with terraced fields of rice, subtropical forests and the unique outline of the Himalayas – whose gigantic mountains are only fifty kilometers away and seem so close that you could touch them 
    Total Distance: 74.4 
    Altitude: 830 mts
