DAY 1 – Ride to Charikot – Himalayan Foothills

Heading east out of Kathmandu we’ll quickly find ourselves twisting and turning through the Himalayan foothills. A mix of paved and broken roads brings us along rivers, over mountain ridges, and finally to the hillside hub-town of Charikot, overlooking the eastern Himalayan range.

Panoramic hotel lodging in Charikot.

DAY 2 – Ride to Nagarkot – Nepal’s Newest Highway 

After breakfast we’ll descend through pine forests to the clear Tama Koshi River. Paralleling the river, the road takes us high along barren cliffs and past small villages. Our afternoon ride is fun and cruisy along Nepal’s newest and smoothest highway.

Finish the day by climbing to a favorite hotel at the Himalayan viewpoint of Nagarkot, just on the Kathmandu Valley rim.

DAY 3 – Ride to Scenic Nuwakot – Historical Nuwakot Palace 

We’ll get off the pavement with a couple patches of dirt riding today as we climb over Shivapuri Mountain and descend into the lovely and rural Nuwakot district. Past terraced mountainsides filled with wheat or rice, and along clear streams, we’ll ride through little-visited villages before arriving at our peaceful “farmhouse” lodge for the evening.

Enjoy drinks and a garden-fresh dinner on the terrace.

DAY 4 – Return to Kathmandu via Alternate Route

After breakfast, we’ll take the road less traveled as we wind up and over the last mountain separating us from the Kathmandu Valley. En-route we’ll stop at a local teashop for tea and a sampling of local snacks.

Back in Kathmandu we’ll ride directly to the bike shop and return the bikes.
