Trip Introduction


One of the most calming experiences around cycling through the picturesque hilly landscapes is an unforgettable adventure rarely mirrored by anything else. Swinging through the wide jungle tracks heading in and out of vibrant hamlets while also enjoying the exquisite views of the Himalayas is often unmatched. And if you have been a part of any cycling experience through the folds of Hilly Nepal you know exactly what we are talking about. One to be enjoyed in its purest form, the Kathmandu Kakani Chisapani Mountain Cycling tour takes you to some of the most stunning hamlets, lush green forests and pleasant jungle tracks adorned with views of Himalayas. And while the main selling point of the trek is the cycling experience, the beauty of vibrant hamlets is not the one to be ignored. All in all, this amazing adventure provides you everything you hope to get out of a cycling tour with a bonus of stunning Hilly landscapes.  

Our cycling adventure begins from the valley as we make our way towards Kakani, located 25kms away from the capital city. Through the stunning jungle tracks, the journey for our first day offers a balanced section of ascending and descending routes and scheduled breaks for refueling. Known for its camping facility and stunning early morning views, Kakani is a perfect place to end our adventure for the day. For the next part of our journey, the route covers 67kms reaching the hamlet at Chisapani for the night. This region lies in the famous Shivapuri National park and the morning, one can witness the glorious sunrise that illuminates the breath-taking mountains and green hills.   

 Ascending through the jungle trail, we reach Nagarkot next which is well known for its stunning Himalayan views. The final day of our journey begins with views of the majestic Himalayas accommodating 8 different Himalayan ranges. Past Nagarkot, the journey descends for its majority heading back to Kathmandu.

General Trekking Info

  1. Trekking at high altitudes requires warm clothing to protect you from the cold. A down jacket with a hood is a must for altitudes above 4,000 m. You can rent a down jacket for USD 30-40, but please note that in case of loss or damage, you will need to reimburse the cost of USD 150 per item.

  2. A good quality sleeping bag is essential for a comfortable night’s sleep during the trek. You can rent a 4-season sleeping bag for USD 30-40, but again, if you lose or damage the sleeping bag, you will need to reimburse the cost of USD 150 per item.

  3. Before embarking on your trek, make sure to acclimatize to the altitude by spending a few days in Kathmandu. This will help your body adjust to the change in altitude and reduce the risk of altitude sickness.

  4. It is essential to have proper trekking shoes that are comfortable and provide good traction. Make sure to break in your shoes before the trek to avoid blisters and discomfort.

  5. The weather in the Himalayas can be unpredictable, so it is crucial to pack for different weather conditions. Layers of clothing, including a waterproof jacket and pants, are recommended.

  6. Trekking poles can be a lifesaver, especially when trekking uphill or downhill. They help reduce the pressure on your knees and provide extra stability.

  7. It is important to stay hydrated while trekking. Carry a water bottle or bladder with you and make sure to drink enough water throughout the day. Avoid drinking untreated water and carry water purification tablets or a water filter.

  8. Toiletries like wet wipes and hand sanitizer are essential, especially when there is no access to running water. It is also important to carry toilet paper and dispose of it properly.

  9. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically demanding, so it is essential to be in good physical shape. Regular exercise and cardiovascular training can help prepare your body for the trek.

  10. Respect the local culture and traditions by learning a few words in the local language and dressing modestly. Avoid giving money or sweets to children, as it can encourage a culture of begging.

  11. Trekking in the Himalayas can be an unforgettable experience, so take the time to enjoy the scenery and immerse yourself in the local culture. Take plenty of pictures, but remember to be respectful of the local customs and traditions.
