Mountain Biking In Nepal

Next to walking is Biking and that means mountain biking is the next best thing to explore Nepal by all means. Mountains bikes easily available at rent in Capital of Nepal – Kathmandu and its city Pokhara; it’s something which is considered a serious alternative when it comes to going around Nepal.

Mountain biking is often combined with trekking and also tours. The long and scenic routes are something which are considered in these routes. Routes thus covered are often steepy – ascents and descents and thus require a medical check – up before one can go for such rides. For such kind of routes, it is always good to take the latest cues from bike shops, pick up the latest map and interact with old local bikers. It is necessary to understand and study a lot if you are going solo or just two people to cover the entire track. However, with incidents of land-slides and less variant cuisine- it becomes essential to have a guide with you. In other words, it’s best to get as much information as possible before you go on a ride! This becomes more important when roads of Nepal are in habit of becoming short and long, thin and paved and rough without prior notice every year! So, be cautious of what you have in your hand and what not….
