Mudkhu is every cyclist’s favorite place for tea and a chat, you may meet some locals here. From here ride to Tingible and then head off road on jeep tracks and village trails riding through villages and rice fields. The trail hugs the valley rim and offers good views of Kathmandu and a good insight into semi-rural life in Nepal. The trails are easy and undulating with many easy ups and downs.

    Valley North Single Track Explorer.

    Balaju – Mudkhu – Chaurgoan –Jhor -Tolkha – Budhanilkhanta – 47km – Moderate Ride, 4 to 5 hours. A mix of off-road trails and the best single track sections on offer in the Valley north. Zig zag your way through the rice paddies and semi-rural villages and test your skill on some fine sections of single track. The ride combines sharp, steep climbs, sweet downhills and single tracks. There are many variations on this route depending on where your guide takes you and your fitness and skill.

    Big Climb and Sweet Downhill.

    Jamacho & Mudhku Single Tracks – 42km- Moderate Ride, 4 to 6 hours. The ride kicks off with a short section of traffic roads to the National Park Gate. Enter the jungle and follow the winding jeep trail on its 21 km climb to the top of the second highest ‘hill’ in the Valley. Views are great from the top, take time to rest and explore the small monastery and have a packed lunch. Now the downhill begins, retrace the main trail for 3 km then head right, deeper into the jungle, from the army check post there are great views of Manaslu and Ganesh Himal. From here the single track fun begins with a fast descent, the trail at times can be overgrown with jungle vines, all the more fun. After the single track, 6km of the sweeping flat trail takes us out of the jungle and back to the main road at Mudkhu for a tea stop. From Mudkhu follow cross country trails and fun single tracks before returning to Kathmandu.

    The Fabled Scar Road.

    Kathmandu – Kakani – Bhudanilkhanta – 57km – Hard Ride, 5 to 6 hours. One of the most challenging rides in the valley that rewards you with fantastic mountain views on a clear day and around 9 km of single track riding in the dense jungle. The ride starts with a long on road climb of around 27 km to Kakani (you also have the option of going on the bus or in a jeep). The last 5 km of this climb are quite steep. Stop for rest and lunch in this tiny village and admire the Himalayan views. From here we enter the park and have a short but tough climb that may involve some push and carry. Things get exciting as we enter the jungle and the track narrows. Technical riding abounds for the next hour or so. Emerge from the jungle and drop almost vertical back down into the Kathmandu Valley. A truly great ride.

    Splendid Single Tracks, Jungles, and Monasteries.

    Thamel –Bhudanilkhanta-Staff College – Nagighompa-Heli Pad-Kopan 47 km –Technical Ride 5 to 6 hours. Leaving our Shop, the ride heads northwards following the main road for around 8 km on a steady climb to Bhudanilkhanta. From here, ride up hill for another 8km on a smooth switch back road which climbs through the jungles of Shivapuri National Park. Past the army college the road flattens and you can get great views of both the valley and the Himalaya. The next section we call ‘30 min of heaven’, a sweeping single track in the Jungle with great turns and descents. Re-join the jeep track and climb for a further 3 km before the trail again begins to descend, turn off the main trail for a steep and super technical descent through the villages and the ‘Heli Pad’ … if you can ride it all! Take a late lunch in Bouldanath to fill up empty tummies before returning to Thamel.

    Temples, Ancient Villages and Single Trails.

    Changunayaran – Sankhu – Ghorkarna 41 KM – Moderate Ride 4 to 6 hours. One of the best cross country rides in the Kathmandu Valley.

From here a sweet section of single trail and jeep track takes us through the rice fields to the Newa town of Sankhu where we will stop for lunch. After that, we head to Ghorkarna using a selection of narrow trails before returning to Kathmandu.
