Mountain Biking FAQs
What are the trails like in Nepal?
Nepal offers a great selection of on and off road biking. On road biking in the city can be hazardous due to heavy traffic and unpleasant from pollution. Out side the ring road there are some great long paved climbs with rugged down hill that covers unused jeep tracks which at times can be like steep rocky river beds thanks to the monsoon rains and single trails which wind through the jungles and forests. There are also a number of narrow trails through farming villages and rice paddies.
If you choose you can also take to the mountains and make use of some of the trekking trails to provide you with a real technical biking challenge.
How much time will I need?
A biking trip in the Himalayas can be as long as one month or one day, it is up to your time frame and we can tailor make tours to suit you.
Do I need biking experience for mountain biking?
There are many trails in Nepal that cover all levels of fitness and experience. We do however recommend to any one undertaking a challenging off road or long tour that you have past biking experience and can handle a mountain bike on rugged down hill trails and in muddy slippery conditions. For novice riders we have some selected trail and offer training.
Can I bring my own bike?
When going on a long tour most people prefer the comfort of their own bike, bikes can easily be brought to Kathmandu, most airlines will not charge you for transport as long as you do not exceed your luggage limit. For travel a bike must be either boxed accordingly or at the least have the peddles removed, and wheels secured and the handlebars twisted side ways. You will also have to state to Nepal customs that you do not intend to leave or sell the bike in Nepal.
What equipment is available in Nepal?
In Nepal you can buy most spare parts for bikes like tires, chains, brake pads, crank sets etc, though you should be aware that genuine parts are difficult to come by and can be expensive, if you are bringing your own bike we recommend you to bring your own spares as you think you will need. Parts like brake pads, inner tubes chains can be found at reasonable prices and are serviceable for long tours. Helmets, Jerseys and biking shorts can be difficult to find in good price and quality as well as larger sizes, we recommend you to bring your own, however we do supply best quality safety helmets to all our clients.
