Original Peddle and Paddle
This trip combines a thrilling day of downhill mountain biking with a day on one of the most exciting rivers in Nepal, the Bhote Kosi. After just a 2 hour drive you find yourself at one of the most stunning viewpoints over the Himalaya in Nagarkot. Once you have taken your photos and had a cup of tea (obligatory on any biking trip in Nepal) it is on to your wheels to head down a jeep track through lush green forest, local villages and a cheese factory! At the end of your 35km you get to relax and enjoy a hearty lunch. At our destination we will stop for some refreshment then it is back on to the bus for about 1 ½ hour drive to our camp site ready to relax by the river. Here we will enjoy good food and good company by the camp fire.
Next morning after a leisurely breakfast we head back on the bus to our rafting starting point. You’ll be kitted out with all the gear you need, given a short paddle and safety talk then it is onto the river to tackle the rapids. After 3 ½ hours of paddling we finish with a well-deserved lunch before heading back to Kathmandu. This trip is ideal for those who don’t have much time or are looking to fill a weekend around Kathmandu. It is a great way to see the mountains, foothills and beautiful gorge of the Bhote Kosi which runs from Tibet.
