Day 1) Kathmandu 5* Hotel
Arrival in Kathmandu Tribhuvan Airport. Airport pick-up and hotel transfer. Opportunity for exploration of the ancient city in your own time. Briefing in the evening for the trip ahead. Introduction to your dirt bikes and familiarisation with them. Receiving duffel bags for re-packing. Your own suitcases can be left with us in our office.
Day 2) Bhaktapur – Nagarkot 3* Hotel.
Enjoy a relaxing morning to recover from your flight or get out for a wander in the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu. Around midday we’ll get going and venture out of Kathmandu towards Nagarkot on the valley rim, where fantastic views of the mountains lay ahead. You’ll be able to relax with a swim at Club Himalaya which resides on the hilltop, being the best location for views of the valley and the Himalayas. 29km
Day 3) Besi: Beach Camping
Just tarmac roads today, with 10% being broken sections. Still definitely thankful for our off-road bikes when we hit these parts! We’ll wind our way downhill through forested roads and come out by the Sun Kosi River (River of Gold). It’s a beautiful road alongside the river with the wide river valley meandering through the 2000m+ hills. The sun will be on our backs as we travel the busy road filled with colourful and pimped up trucks and buses. 110km
Day 4) Pattale: Basic Hotel
A bit more of a challenging ride today as we increase our altitude and head to our Everest viewpoint destination. The Sun Kosi stretches out beneath us as we wind our way up the hillsides into the Solukhumbu region. Many switchbacks lay ahead and some river crossings too. It’s a wild and beautiful journey that will take your breath away. You will arrive in time for the sunset view from your hotel of over thirty-nine peaks of the Himalaya, including Everest. 124km
Day 5) Pattale – day ride/rest day: Basic Hotel
This is a free day for walking or riding around and taking in the mountain air. This area is quiet and you can just relax and enjoy the mountains. There is the possibility of riding off-road over the 3000m hillsides to have lunch ‘off-piste’ and experience some good Nepalese dirt tracks. In the evening we can enjoy the campfire outside under the stars swapping stories of the ride so far.
Day 6) Mulkhot: Basic Hotel
Today we leave the peaks behind us as we travel back down on the high altitude roads with dramatic looking drops around us. The temperature slowly rises as we descend further. We’ll stop for lunch at a roadside restaurant where the familiar and freshly cooked dhal bhat tarkari (lentil soup, rice and vegetables) will fuel us on our way. Only small villages are scattered on this road and it’s still a long ride back to Kathmandu, so we’ll stay the night at a basic hotel and rest. 124km
Day 7) Khaniyakharka – Dulikhel: 4* Hotel
Time for a small diversion this morning as we take a different road, firstly back up a steep hill to the town of Khaniyakharka. This is the site of the hilltop fort where the British army were stopped in the 1800s and the legend of the fierce Gurkha warrior was born. We can stop here for a short break and a history lesson. Lunch will be had either on the road back to Dulikhel or if we’re riding fast, once we arrive at the Hotel. The sun will be behind us in the afternoon but vision may still be impaired by the dusty roads nearer Dulikhel so keep your visors down or be prepared to eat dust! Once in Dulikhel you can kick back at the Dulikhel mountain resort with views from your bedroom of the Himalayas. 117km
Day 8) Kathmandu: 5* Hotel
Today is a short journey back to the Kathmandu valley. Once we arrive you’ll be free to ride around town on the bikes unguided or just take a stroll around. Later we’ll be celebrating the adventure in the evening over dinner at Tukche Thakali at 6pm. 31km
Day 9) Sightseeing: 5* Hotel
Relax, get a massage, be guided around the World Heritage sites of Kathmandu & Patan or feel free to sightsee by yourself. Lunch will be offered with the walking tour of the World Heritage Sites and there’ll be dinner at the hotel in the evening. If you’d like to go out by yourself for dinner there are many great restaurants and eateries in the city.
