We pedal through the dense jungle of Shivapuri National Park and the route to the Helambu trekking trail.

Whatever our route will depend on the condition of the trails.

Dhulikhel to Kathmandu via Lubhu Sisneri 29 km
We ride on a jeep track to the ancient city of Panauti, where Lord Buddha once lived like a prince. This special village-truly lost in time-is rarely visited by tourists. Indreswor Mahadev Temple in Panauti is the oldest ancient temple in Nepal, believed to be constructed in 1294A.D. Turn west; we follow a jeep track along the meandering Roshi River. Beyond the town of Madhuban, we enter into a narrow pristine valley ascending 300m on a superb trail to reach the summit of Kathmandu Valley’s eastern rim known as Lakhuri Bhanjyang. This is probably the oldest route east out of Kathmandu Valley, connecting the ancient cities of the valley with Panauti. What a grunt! But the views of the Himalayas are more than compensate. From the saddle, the descent is on switch-backed jeep track. After an hour and a 500m descent, we come to Sisneri, a quiet valley village. The ethnicity of the people changes as we descend from Tamangs, Thakuries, and Chhetris to lowland Newari farmers. We then cycle the last part of our journey from Sisneri to Kathmandu city making a quick round-about through Patan Durbar Square.
