Namo Budha Tour

Kathmandu in the 1980’s was certainly still a time of innocence in Nepal’s history and not far removed from the hippy trail. In 1988 the spirit of adventure, beyond just trekking, was being realised and mountain biking as a new world trend was starting to fill the trails vacated by free spirited hippies. Nagarkot is one of the most scenic spot situated about 35 km east of Kathmandu from where an excellent view of snow-capped peaks of the Himalayan Ranges in eastern Nepal can be seen (if weather permits), as well as renowned for the spectacular sunrise. Namo Buddha is a Tibetan monastery situated on a hilltop east south of Dhulikhel. It is rarely visited by as there is no road for vehicle. Pilgrims hike to NamoBuddha but we do it on the mountain bike all the time. On the first day, we ride to Dhulikhel and stay in a resort. Enjoy the serenity of this hill village and explore the surroundings. Following day, the trail starts with a nice climb to Kali temple and gradually reaches NamoBuddha. After picnic lunch atop the monastery we ride back down to Dhulikhel and check into the resort. On the 3rd day, get ready for some off-road fun, which brings us back to Bhaktapur via the village of Nala. This tour is graded expert and requires good stamina.
