About This Package
Cycling is fun, and it is a great family activity. But by incorporating cycling into your routine and that of your children, you will do great things for your body and provide a sense of well-being that you will never find in front of the television. And cycling is about everyone: people of all shapes, sizes, ages and levels. There are many opportunities for children, who can now sit behind mom and dad on a tandem bicycle, sledge or trailer. For adults, there is a selection of road bikes, mountain bikes and hybrid bikes (trekking) increasingly popular. There are even electric bicycles for those who need a little push, tandem bikes for lovers (and bicyclists with visual impairments paired with bicyclists with visual disabilities) and recumbent bicycles for those who want to unload their backs and packs.
The one-day bicycle tour through Kathmandu gives participants an opportunity to understand the rich culture of the Kathmandu Valley, which also boasts historic sites, ancient temples, shrines and fascinating villages. Thanks to our bike tour, you will not only be part of the grandeur, but you will also be able to rub shoulders with locals throughout the course.
Our day will start with a hearty breakfast followed by a bicycle tour through the Chobhar Gorge, 9 km southwest of the Kathmandu Valley. Here you will learn a mythical legend that revolves around the construction of the valley. You will also visit the Adinath temple located at the top of the hill and enjoy the picturesque view of the valley. Then we will go to Kirtipur, an ancient city located on a ridge 10 km southwest of the valley. We will walk through the narrow streets of the ancient city and observe the ancient sanctuaries, temples and traditional houses typical of the valley. You will also observe the traditional lifestyle of the inhabitants of the city and taste their local specialities.
