Nepal’s diverse terrain is the paradise for mountain bikers. Mountain biking in Nepal offers an environmentally sound way of exploring the country and villages. It is possible to bike through the entire length of Nepal. Centuries old dirt roads and trails offer a chance to go extended trips to exotic locales in Annapurna and Kanchenjunga areas. The mountain bike riders can explore rims and ridges of Kathmandu and Pokhara valleys through the off-tracks that weave in and out of the cities. Mountain biking around Annapurna Circuit trail is an amazing experience following through its popular trekking route.
Another cross-country biking is possible on the 1,200 kilometers long Lhasa to Kathmandu Trans-Himalayan highway. It is the most scenic and demanding expedition over the snowy high mountain passes and barren valley of Tibet. So, the permits are now available for bicycle trek in Tibet from Lhasa to Kathmandu. Bikers need a strong determination to attempt the expedition though. It is also the world’s longest continuous descent that covers about 70 to 100 kilometers per day. The zigzag high passes demand a constant battle against breathlessness with awe-inspiring Himalayan scenery. The last section of the trip in Nepal is truly amazing and unforgettable.
