This day we have uphill road ride through the pine forests brings us to a Nagarkot hilltop (2194m) above sea level. The great panoramic view point of the Himalayan peaks. We visit the traditional Newar pottery village of Thimi on our way to Nagarkot. A lunch stop at Bhaktapur, the ancient city dotted with 16th and 17th century monuments will bring you back to the Malla dynasty.
We spend the night at Nagarkot in one of the many fine hotels and wake up to have breakfast with some of the 7000 and 8000 meter mountains such as Langtang, Ganesh, Dorje Lakpa, Gauri Shankar and even Everest from a distance.
After sunrise views we have breakfast at Nagarkot then we ride down the ultimate downhill trail for nearly 10-km to Sankhu, another ancient town at the outskirts of Kathmandu. Then continue our biking trip to Dhulikhel descending through ‘Nala’ an old Newari village, rich with traditional architecture and ‘Banepa’ a busy town, market for several villages nearby. We will reach Dhulikhel, (2140m) situated at 32-kms east of Kathmandu. Dhulikhel is yet another vista point which offers central and eastern Himalayan views but with a different perspective than from Nagarkot Hill. Dhulikhel is also the gateway to the road network that stretches into Tibet and the other eastern towns in Nepal.
The trail starts with a nice climb to Kali temple and gradually reaches to Namo Buddha. (Buddhist Monastery), which is situated on a hilltop east south of Dhulikhel. It is rarely visited by as there is no road for vehicle. Pilgrims hike to Namo Buddha but we do it on the mountain bike all the time. After picnic lunch atop the monastery we ride back down to Dhulikhel and check into the resort.
Our last day ride begins at 8:00 am after breakfast. We ride through a historically important town, ‘Panauti’. Pedaling 2 and half hour climb from here will reach to ‘Lakuri Bhanjyang’. A perfect destination for awe-inspiring panoramic views of the mountain and sight the three cities (Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur) from the altitude of 1994m.
