• Day 1 Basantapur - Swoyambhu - Pashupatinath - Bouddha - Chang Narayan - Bhaktapur - Patan, 55Km/34 Miles

    Nepal Adventure Team will make the arrangements for the bicycle at Thamel and the guide will receive you from your hotel. Since Kathmandu Durbar Square is located in the center of Kathmandu and nearby Thamel; you will ride to Kathmandu Durbar Square through Narrow Street and alleys of Thamel. After having the slow ride through Kathmandu Durbar Square, you will drive downwards to reach the main road leading to Swoyambhunath Temple.

    Passing the main road of Dallu, your steep uphill ride begins as Swoyambhunath is located on the top of a hill providing the pleasing view of Kathmandu Valley along with the breeze of religion and spirituality. Now, you will go for a longer ride as Pashupatinath Temple is quite away from Swoyambhunath compared to the distance between Kathmandu Durbar Square and Swoyambhunath. Pashupatinath Temple has a wide are to explore from shrines, temples, rivers to forests. The next site is Bouddhanath Stupa located in the middle of city chaos but provides the peaceful and pleasing environment of huge White Stupa decorated with incense’s aroma, colorful prayer flags, prayer wheels, and devotees.

    Now, we enter the Bhaktapur Municipality (district) to visit Changu Narayan Temple and Bhaktapur Durbar Square. It’s about 16km/ 10miles to Changu Narayan Temple from Bouddhanath Stupa and Changu Narayan Temple is also located on the top of the hill which will be requiring more energy. The sculpture of Hinduism values and a calm environment make the long ride worthwhile. Returning by the same road, you will enter at Bhaktapur Durbar Square with century’s old palaces and temple. Bhaktapur is widely famous for its craftsmanship and pottery.

    Then, you will ride to Patan Durbar Square, today’s last heritage site. From Bhaktapur Municipality, you will go to Lalitpur Municipality/district. Lalitpur is famous for wooden and metal works and Patan Durbar Square is a fantastic example to display the crafts and sculpture of Lalitpur.

    Riding throughout the Kathmandu Valley and exploring 7 Heritage Sites, you will return to Thamel. The guide will drop you to your hotel.
