Explore Valley By Mountain Bike | Day Tour

Bike the Himalayas on a full-day mountain bike tour around Kathmandu. Cycle the ridge-top trails encircling the valley's rim, traveling on quiet dirt roads. Immerse yourself in the wilderness of mountain villages, small temples, and more.
Enjoy spectacular views of the Nepalese Himalayas on a full-day mountain bike tour, with options tailored to your level of experience and fitness, from an easy 19-mile (32-kilometer) trek to a challenging 37-mile (62-kilometer) bike ride.

You will be cycling in a delightful world of wooded slopes, small villages, hidden temples, and views of the giant mountain peaks, from Makalu to the Annapurnas. Each route is available daily and includes a mix of trails and technical challenges.

Kathmandu-Tolkha-Kathmandu Tour
This is a great beginner’s ride that includes an easy climb away from Kathmandu before a thrilling ride back downhill through typical villages and farms. There will be some chances to test your skills on sections of single track. Visit the ancient temple at Tolkha for a picnic lunch, before returning to Kathmandu.

• Grade: Easy
• Distance: 19 miles (32 kilometers)

Kathmandu Scar Road Tour
This is one of the most talked about and challenging rides in the Kathmandu Valley. Start with a 20.5-mile (34-kilometer) climb along a winding paved road to Trishuli and the heart of Langtang. Once at the top, go off-road and climb the last 3-mile (5-kilometer) steep section for stunning views of the Himalayas on clear days. Once inside the National Park the trail becomes narrow and technical. Traverse the jungle with a cliff drop on one side, and test your technical riding with some fast and furious downhill stretches. Be sure to keep your eyes on the trail and not the mountains!

• Grade: Difficult
• Distance: 37 miles (62 kilometers)

Kathmandu-Chobar-Lele-Godwari- Kathmandu Tour
Enjoy a longer, scenic ride of the southern end of the Kathmandu Valley. Suitable for intermediate riders, the tour combines a mix of jeep tracks, country roads, and trails. The 28-mile (47-kilometer) trail undulates through the countryside and small villages of the Newar and Tamang people, before making a sharp ascent to Dhanda, where views of the Kathmandu Valley open up before your eyes. There is the option of a challenging single track, or a switch back jeep track to get down to the valley.

As a family with the youngest being 13 years old the traffic in Kathmandu was not to much of a problem as long as you are confident and literally go with the flow. Kishwor our guide was great and we got to see the city away from the normal tourist areas. We rode up to Changnarayan, through paddy fields, past farms stopping for lunch. We had good quality disk brake Giant bikes. A brilliant day. 10/10 can't wait to do it again

 

Did the Marijuana loop. Haven’t rode a bike for a good 5 years, let alone a mountain bike ever! But our guide Kishwor was really helpful, talented and patient! Hard work but if you have a base level of fitness it is doable and if you can’t make it on the hills riding then its totally ok to get off and push. Such a good way to spend a day out of the busy city, fresh air, beautiful rice paddies views and riding through some little villages. I have a sore butt but its well worth it!

 

I did a half day trip with Trekking Team Group  in Kathmandu Valley. 
My guide was Kishwor. He's a great professional guide who speaks English  well. 
The trip I did was 37 km, starting point Thamel in Kathmandu. It's great that you can escape the hectic of Kathmandu so easily by bike and be in the quite environment of Kathmandu valley with fascinating houses, children who are waving at you and some nice landscape views of the valley.
Kishwor took good care of me and made sure we had some stops to have a nice chai. 
If you like mountain biking, even just a little bit, I would definitely recommend you to get in contact with this company.
They can arrange trips from a half day to more days. Just go for it and enjoy!!
