Mountain Biking

Mountain biking has become a hugely popular activity in Nepal largely because of the variety of terrain and the spectacular natural backdrop of mountains, rivers and forests. Rides range from flat, laid-back roads that wind through the tropical plains of the Terai region in the south of Nepal to more demanding trails in the Middle Hill and Valley region, or the truly challenging mountainous terrain and arctic climate of thehigh alpine region. One of the best ways to discover these hidden treasures and the warm ever-smiling people who inhabit it, is on a mountain bike. Mountain biking gets you away from the noise and dirt of urban life into a serene country environment. Imagine a hidden trail opening on to a traditional village with a rural lifestyle that has been preserved for centuries.

During the 1980’s, mountain bikers began flying bikes from Hong Kong to Tibet and traversing breathtaking passes, 5,148 meter (17,000 ft), and ending up in Nepal. These early pioneers sparked a mountainbike revolution even among native Nepalese. Today Kathmandu is a mecca for mountain bicyclists, and continues to draw thousands of enthusiasts from all corners of the world.
