Kathmandu Rim Bike Tour - 3 Days

(Kathmandu Rim Bike Tour )Mountain biking is a sport of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using specially designed mountain Bike. Mountain bikes share similarities with other bikes but incorporate features designed to enhance durability and performance in rough terrain. Mountain biking can generally be broken down into multiple categories: cross riding,trail riding , downhill, free ride and dirt jumping.

This sport requires endurance, core strength and balance, bike handling skills, and self-reliance. Advanced riders pursue both steep technical descents and high incline climbs. In the case of free ride, downhill, and dirt jumping, aerial maneuvers are performed off both natural features and specially constructed jumps and ramps.

Kathmandu rim Bike tour is the perfect mountain biking experience for those adventurers with a short time frame and low budget. Mountain biking around Kathmandu valley gives great landscape views of the valley and mountains while allowing the cyclist to explore the cultural highlights as well.

The biking trail passes on the graveled road of Shivapuri National Park and other hills surrounding the valley. It passes through Chisapani, a village of mixed cultures including Tamang, Sherpa and Magar ethnic groups. See the sunrise views of the great Himalayan range. The trail also goes to Nagarkot, a famous tourist destination for sunrise and sunset views. In between Chisapani and Nagarkot, we will ride on a single track and feel the excitement of riding through nature and seeing wildlife. At the end of our tour, we will visit the ancient Chyangu Narayan temple, listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.

Following are the few point to be noticed before Biking tour:

a) Clean and check the bike between rides in different habitats, before traveling and especially before entering sensitive natural areas and regions.
b) Control weeds and non-native species at trailheads and trail margins.
c) Educate mountain bike riders about the potential dispersal of different species (good stewardship begets riding privileges).
d) Encourage cooperation between mountain bikers and managing authorities (avoid condescending regulations, establishment of monitored designated riding areas).
