Cycle through Hidden Kathmandu
Take to the streets on your saddle, as your guide leads you through the tourist landmarks and back alleys of Kathmandu. You will take in markets, squares, temples, Stupas and even have time for a spot of lunch.
This morning, you will be driven to Kathmandu Durbar Square in the heart of the old city, where your guide will be waiting with your bikes ahead of a full day of adventure.
You will begin by heading into some of the back lanes that give this city its real character. You ride past the numerous small temples and idols that you may have noticed are dotted all over the city, and your guide can explain their significance and who, why and when people make offerings to them.
The lanes lead back to the Durbar Square, home to numerous examples of Newari architecture in its grand temples and pyramid style stupas, which make it one of Nepal’s most iconic destinations. From here, you will continue into the heart of the city and your guide will offer you the chance to stop for some local momos (meat or vegetable-filled dumplings), samosas and Lassie before exploring the markets of Indra Chowk.
This historic artery through the city is famous for its colourful beads. Here you will have the chance to dismount and explore some of the stalls with your guide and take in the Nepalese way of life, perhaps bartering over some goods.
At lunchtime, you will head to the famous Kaiser Café, which has fuelled (and celebrated) many a summit attempt on Mt Everest for years before heading to the popular tourist area of Thamel, which is a great place to grab a souvenir or two.
The afternoon will be spent riding out to Swyambhunath Stupa, or Monkey Temple as it has come to be known. You will take the much less trodden rear access road up hill to the stupa where you will park up and admire the panoramic view of Kathmandu for a fitting end to your day.
From the stupa, your bikes will be collected and you will be driven back to your hotel.
