What To Expect
Explore the different side of Kathmandu away from the run-of-the-mill touristy destinations on a mountain bike. See the impressive Chobar Gorge and learn about the legend of the emergence of Kathmandu valley from a mythical lake. Ride through the narrow alleyways of the ancient town of Kirtipur. Try-out local delicacies of the original inhabitants of the valley, the Newars.
Setting off on a well-oiled mountain bike, pedal your way out of downtown Kathmandu by reaching the outskirts. Invigorated with an infusion of unpolluted air, head to Cho bar hill. The area is subject to interesting folklore that involves the creation of the Kathmandu valley out of a lake. Far behind is the city of Kathmandu. The rugged biking trail poses an interesting challenge heading to one of the oldest parts of Kathmandu Valley - the historic town of Kirtipur (1.5 hr approx). The raw originality of the place is sure to amaze and enthrall.
Break the day's sojourn at an authentic local eatery where traditionally clad locals spread out their ethnic cuisine. Enjoy the local delicacies local style - sitting on a straw mat with very traditional and local cutlery - your own fingers! Taste buds satisfied and cultural awareness heightened, slowly bike back to the city (1hr approx).
