Your first day in the saddle. We head southwest from Katmandu and start to fully savour the rural environment. For an easy start, a very pretty little stage in the Nepalese countryside, to lap up the mountain scenery.

D3 / Daman - Chitwan - 125 Km

Back on the westward road for a gorgeous stage. A change of scenery: you're now cruising on the plain, to the region of Terai, the "grain basket" of Nepal. In the afternoon, a walk in the jungle of Chitwan National Park, where the abundant flora and fauna contrast with the mountainous landscapes of the Himalaya.

D4 / Chitwan

In the morning, an elephant-back ride to soak up this luxuriant vegetation. In the afternoon, we'll venture into the hostile jungle, searching for Asian crocodiles; then board a boat on the Narayani River to observe them in their natural habitat.

We leave the jungle and head for Tansen, in the mountains further west. We visit this little town, well away from mass tourism. After this long stage, its small quiet streets and surrounding countryside are pleasantly restful.

Free time in Kathmandu. You could visit the stupa of Bodnath or the religious site of Pashupatinath. Take a stroll through the tiny streets to discover the city's remarkable cultural and artistic heritage: hidden temples decorated in garlands of marigolds, courtyards where chili peppers and rice lay drying; and tiny workshops.

The riders' opinions

Karl
A once in a lifetime experience!

“Made the 14 day Rajasthan rumble and it has been an amazing ride. We had breathtaking moments, crossing small villages and having chai teas with locals. Amazing hotels and sightseeing. If you a bike enthusiast and like exotic travels, you should do this trip. The guide and local staff managed it, not being a touristic thing.”

Matthew
Great staff/tour personnel

“Firstly, the airport experience on arrival was a little disjointed but of no great consequence. From thereon in wonderful people to deal with and our tour leader/support staff were excellent. The bikes were in good mechanical condition and we were fortunate that our group had a good skill set as there were some challenging roads. Notwithstanding though this trip would be suitable for most capable riders. No alcohol in the high altitudes is recommended. A very professional outfit all round.”

Mark
Absolute adventure

“This trip is managed from start to finish to provide the participant with a stress free experience. The bikes were amazing and the crew was even better making a trouble free journey. Vintage Rides gives you the opportunity of a life time with a guide who provides guided autonomy. Thank you Vintage Rides for an experience I will never forget for all the right reasons.”
