The gentle cool breeze shuffling your hair as you constantly paddle the machine along the bumpy and curvy dirt trails, fascinating terraced fields, interesting villages, funky flowers & swaying trees and eye-catching backdrop of the towering mountains……. that's the ecstasy of mountain biking in Nepal!! With challenging mountain roads that climb up unfolding the spectacular views, and adrenaline pumping descents, along the quaint villages off the main roads, Nepal is virtually a paradise waiting to be discovered on your mountain bike.
Nepal is undoubtedly the world's number one adventure square for mountain bikers. From the flatlands of the Terai to the terraced hillside farms, the vertical landscape soars towards the snow clad peaks of the Himalayas, inviting you to be a part of a pulsating adventure. The tropical lush vegetation is a rich contrast against the stark, arctic regions where winds have swept, sculpting amazing forms on arid valleys of the Tibetan plateau. Mountain biking is a tremendous way to behold the exotic sights of Nepal such as the ancient routes of trans-Himalayan traders and the rural life patterns herein. Not surprising why some people have even started calling Nepal a "Mecca for Mountain Biking”!
