The best way to explore the tiny Himalayan nation is on foot. However, mountain biking is a close second. Hurling down the adventurous dirt roads on a mountain bike is a favorite among adrenaline junkies. And what better country than Nepal to embark on this adventure? Beginning right from the capital city of Kathmandu, there are endless possibilities for bikers.
The dirt trails going up and down Kathmandu valley lead you to far flung settlements, while offering spectacular views of beautiful terraced farms, lush hills, and even far away mountains as you climb to higher elevations. Out of Kathmandu valley, there are quaint terraced hillsides, cascading waterfalls, and clearer views of the Himalayans that loom large in the background. And if you choose to ride in the mountains, the country boasts of a series of serene valleys, turquoise glacial lakes and you’re ever so close to the mountains. And if that doesn’t satiate you yet, you can ride all the way through the Himalayans alongside the northern borders. During all these ride journeys, be it through the bustling cobbled streets of Kathmandu or the isolated Himalayan villages, the ever-smiling faces of warm people who will greet you along the path will warm your heart. It is indeed a great way to discovering Nepal’s heart and soul.
