Trip Description

Our XC Nepal is a classic biking trip. It offers magical riding opportunities from low land (Tarai) to Himalayan heights, embraced by culture, nature and awe-inspiring topography through the foot hills. Starting from Kathmandu, we explore this fascinating hub of culture and its medieval market squares, narrow lanes and hundreds of ancient Buddhist and Hindu temples.  The next leg of our journey takes us to one of Asia’s premium wildlife reserves. The wild and mysterious Chitwan National Park is home to the royal Bengal Tiger, the one-horned rhino and many other fascinating species, including several hundred birds. We explore the jungle by two wheels, foot and elephant ride. In the evening we relax in beautiful surroundings as the sun sets over the plains of India. After Chitwan, we head north, where we will ride some of the most exciting trails in the Himalayas - single-track and double dirt road based on your riding style. We will take you into the heart of the majestic Annapurna Range and spend amazing days through breath-taking scenery, ancient cultures and charming villages.
