|On a bicycle I
to all local experiences as
no other modern traveller
can hope to be. Moving
quietly along at gentle
speeds allows me to see,
hear, and smell ...
I can stop wherever and
whenever I want to...
I am able to respond to
the greetings of workers
in the fields, passers-by,
and friendly villagers.

Pokhara to Kathmandu
This 200km, 14
day trail takes us on a fantastic off road route linking the 2 major
cities in Nepal, Pokhara and Kathmandu..
Following your arrival in Kathmandu, we limber
up for our journey by taking a short tour of the medieval city of
Kathmandu before flying out to Pokhara. Situated by the beautiful
Phewa lake, Pokhara affords some of the most stunning views of the
Annapurnas and Machhapuchre - Fish Tail Peak. Another day trip around
the area will ensure that everything is in order before we set off
back to Kathmandu.
Less than 30 miles of this ride is on tarmaced
highway, so prepare yourself for what has been described as ...the
best off-road riding in the Himalayas. Tracing an assortment of
broad foot paths, old jeep trails and some technical single tracks
we make our way across remote territory that's seldom visited by
westerners. Challenging ascents as well as some incredible descents
combine to make this off-road biking a Great Mountain Biker's dream.
A support vehicle carrying all of our tents and
equipment, will follow us as closely as possible. One glance at
the picture above and you'll get the idea - they will not always
be righ on our tail.
