Program

This cycling experience across the rugged trails of Shivapuri National Park brings you to the destinations worth thorough explorations. The famous Buddhist nunnery Monastery Nagi Gopma and the sleeping Vishnu temple Budhanilkantha are two major landmarks of different religions that clearly manifest not only the valley. The hills surrounding the valleys are also the melting point of Buddhism and Hinduism.

Enjoy the great view of Kathmandu from the monastery and then continue your biking trip to Mulkharka. The ride to Mulkharka is kind of an eco-biking trip into the dense forest. However, the easy downhill ride through tranquil jungle trail is so much fun.

The final highlight of the tour goes along the ascending trail to Nagarkot. The nearest hill-station from Kathmandu, Nagarkot shows the widespread Himalayan range from Annapurna Massif to Everest and offers an incredible sunrise view.

Descending down from Nagarkot will bring you to the city of devotees, Bhaktapur, and the oldest Hindu temple in the country, Changunarayan. Explore these UNESCO World Heritage Sites and pedal back to Kathmandu.
