Explore the villages and countryside of rural Nepal on bikes, plus Chitwan N.P.
Famous for its spectacular mountain scenery, Nepal isn't the most obvious destination for relaxed cycling. However, the beauty of this trip is that you can experience the incredible Himalaya without actually riding any huge climbs. Away from busy Kathmandu we head to the foothills of the Mahabarat Mountains, riding through cool pine forests and stopping at fascinating old towns and remote temples en route. We then reach the lowlands of Nepal and weave through picturesque thatched villages where farming traditions have changed little in centuries.
Cycling is the ideal way to discover this beautiful area and to meet the friendly villagers. We arrive at Chitwan National Park for a well-earned rest and go in search of rhino on an elephant-back safari. We then head towards Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha, and explore the Buddha Maya Gardens. Refreshed, we cycle back towards the mighty panorama of the Annapurna Range and the old town of Pokhara.
