Overview

A day cycling tour around the Kathmandu valley is a good way to explore the countryside. This cycling tour offers an opportunity to observe and learn the valley countryside, cultures and geographical attributes. Further, the beautiful scenery from the hill around the valley is amazing and a lifetime experience.
The best and most popular trail for a one-day cycling tour through Kathmandu valley can be the Mudku-Tinpiple route. The cycling tour commences leading onward the east of Kathmandu Valley ( Balaju). If we start from the junction Thamel, then we must push the mountain bike tour to the east i.e. Balaju. After reaching Balaju our trail follows Trishuli Highway for about 5 km and reaches Mudkhu. This road gradually goes through the edges of Shivapuir National Park (Nagarjuna Jungle) offering a scenic view of the valley.
After we reach Mudkhu, we hold our cycling tour for tea and snacks at the local teashops. We ride via village from the check post and ascend in cycle upwards to the Kathmandu valley. If the weather supports, we can have the panoramic view of Kathmandu valley, Shivapuri National park and the Himalayan ranges. 
Taking ride downhill towards Tinpiple for about 3 km stats an off-road. We ride our cycle towards Dharmashtalu from the Tinpiple. We continue forward to Tokha. It is an old Newari town and famous for its culture and cuisine. We can taste some local Newari cuisine from Tokha.
.
From the Tokha, we follow the trail to Budhanilkantha on our cycle which is approximately 7 km off-road. The trail leads us to the downhill and is easy. We stop the ride for a moment and stop at Budhanilkantha temple to explore and observe its religious importance.
At last, we ride back to the downhill and plain Kathmandu to mark our destination to Kathmandu, Thamel.
