This biking trip is the exploration of ancient villages around kathmandu valley. You need to wake up early in the morning have breakfast and we wind our way through the back alleys of the old city and head south to Bungamati. Here, we will stop to visit the Machhendranath temple and traditional Newari achitecture. From here we descend on a rocky single track to the lower village of Khokana, stopping to look at the Shekali Mai temple, a valley Nature Goddess. We return uphill to Bungamati and then continue South, climbing on a jeep track through lush forests to the village of Champi with its sweeping view of the southwest corner of the Kathmandu Valley.
A combination of downhill push and uphill carry for 15 minutes takes us to the picturesque village of Chapagaon. The famous Vajra Varahi temple is just South of the town. Sadly, this temple has been neglected but the old woodcarvings of Krishna and Vishnu are still in good condition. From Chapagaon, we ride on an exciting jeep track, more like a roller coaster ride, to the village of Baregaon that leads us back.
