The Himalayan kingdom of Nepal is one of the world's most beautiful countries. From the highest point on the earth to the jungle lowlands along the Indian border, there is an incredible variety of scenery, including huge glaciers, alpine pastures, thick uninhabited forests and carefully terraced hillsides. Highlights of this trip include:
This trip gives you the opportunity to experience Nepal’s diversity in one of the most rewarding ways - by bicycle. Starting from Kathmandu we head into the Mahabharata mountains where you can experience the best Himalayan views in Nepal, from Dhaulagiri in the west to Everest in the in the East. From here, we cycle down into the Terai, close to the border of India where you will visit small thatched villages and experience the ancient farming traditions.
Once in the Terai, we visit the Chitwan National Park, one of Asia's finest wildlife parks, where you can go on an elephant safari in search of rhino, or take to the river in a dugout canoe. Refreshed from the comforts of our lodge we return to the mountains, cycling towards the mighty panorama of the Annapurna range and the sacred peak of Machhapuchhare (The Fish Tail).
