You have an extra day in Kathmandu and don't know what to do as you are an adventure lover. Nagarkot to Kathmandu Mountain Biking can be the best-recommended trip for you for a 1-day adventure experience.
Nagarkot is a picturesque town on the hilltop, which is located 35 km northeast of the Kathmandu valley. It is a wonderful viewpoint of the magnificent Himalayan sceneries, countryside greenery, gorges, and scattered hilly communities. The serene nature, fresh surroundings, delightful views, and the winding trail… all back up the mountain biking tour from Nagarkot.
Kicking off from the Nagarkot viewpoint, it goes almost the downhill route and directs you toward the Changu Narayan temple. It is a UNESCO-listed world heritage site among seven in the valley. The wooden crafts and the ancient architectures look spectacular. The biking can be descended towards Bhaktapur Durbar Square and ride back to Kathmandu or straight from the right of the temple and riding all the way back to Kathmandu.
