Nepal has been increasingly known as a bucket list destination for mountain biking. But when you don’t have enough time needed for a biking expedition in the famed Annapurna region or on the less-ridden trails of Langtang, the trails in and around the Kathmandu valley are the one you need to go for. They are perfect for both beginners and advanced riders. Moreover, one-day biking trip in Kathmandu can be taken as a part of your longer trekking trip or a tour of Nepal, or a practice for your epic rides in the Himalayas.

1. Mudkhu-Tokha Trail
This trail is perfect for beginners and within easy reach from Thamel. You only need half a day for this ride as it only takes about 3 to 4 hours to complete this trail and be back at your hotel.
2. The Scar Road
One of the most challenging trails in Kathmandu, the route goes to Kakani (2,030 m), an excellent hill station on the valley rim, and then to Budhanilkantha, and comes back to your hotel in Kathmandu. You will need 5 to 6 hours for this route.
3. Budhanilkantha-Kapan Trail
This technical ride, which takes about 5 to 6 hours, starts from Kathmandu, heads to Budhanilkantha and then to Kapan and returns back to your hotel in Kathmandu. The route goes through two Buddhist monasteries. If you are interested and have time, you can visit there and interact with nuns and monks.
4. Jamacho Route
Another biking route within easy reach from Thamel but harder than Mudhkhu-Tokha Trail. This moderate ride takes you on a 21-km serpentine road to the top of Nagarjun Hill (2,128 m) inside Shivapuri National Park. The top viewpoint offers some of the amazing views. It takes about 5 to 6 hours to complete.
Note: During the trip, factors such as local politics, transport, weather, etc. may also affect the itinerary.
