Himalayan Mountain Bike: Mountain biking is the best way to experience the rural Nepal. It happens possible to escape from paved roads to ride on tracks and trails to remote and rarely visited areas of the country. For an independent traveller, this is the best alternative way to avoid crowds of buses and to stop as you wish. Nepal offers challenging climbs to thousand of meters to reach some spectacular viewpoints and a reward of exhilarating descents. The Kathmandu valley has a vast network of village tracks and trails. Mountain biking gives a perfect chance to explore the valley’s wealth of temples, Stupas and mediaeval towns.
