The diverse itinerary covers Unesco World Heritage listed temples, Chitwan National Park, and then Pokhara, with its mesmerising panoramic view of the Himalayas. This motorbike trip in Nepal, a moving and thought-provoking experience, will take you from village to village, through paddy fields, to connect with the incredibly cheerful and welcoming people of Nepal. Not forgetting mythical Kathmandu: a heaving, fascinating, unique mixture of traditions and the modern age.

D2 / Patan - Chitwan - 99 miles

On the first day of this motorcycle tour, we head southwest from Kathmandu, where we truly begin to appreciate rural Nepal. The landscape changes from one valley to another as we navigate roads that wind through traditional villages and terraced fields until we reach the Terai.

D3 / Chitwan

Today, we spend the day in the depths of lush nature. A guided safari will provide sightings of one-horned rhinos, monkeys, crocodiles, and if we’re lucky, an unforgettable encounter with a Royal Bengal tiger, leopard or bear.

D4 / Chitwan - Tansen - 118 miles 

We head northwest, making our way out of the jungle up winding mountain roads to Tansen. These roads are a real playground for our Royal Enfields!

D5 / Tansen - Pokhara - 80 miles

The leg to Pokhara is beautiful. The road is good and climbs up through the lush Aadhikhola river’s valley. We arrive near Phewa Lake in the afternoon and can enjoy some free time. Nothing epitomizes Pokhara’s splendid natural beauty quite like the majestic Phewa Tal, Nepal’s second-biggest lake.

D6 / Pokhara - Dhampus - 56 miles

A small stage today, which allows us to stay a little more in this beautiful region at the foothills of the Annapurnas and enjoy its captivating views. The ridge road we take to the west of Pokhara, with little traffic, displays the most beautiful view and picture point, with the Great Himalayas as a backdrop.

D7 / Dhampus - Darechok - 80 miles

A very nice riding day which leads us slowly towards Kathmandu. We treat ourselves with a nice break near Begnas Lake, an oasis of calm and beauty. We continue downhill to finally follow the river Trishuli, which descends generously from the Tibetan plateau. Our path is dotted with various encounters, in a landscape of abundant rice fields, pine forest, and impressive gorges.

D8 / Darechok - Nuwakot - 112 miles

We still ride towards Kathmandu and climb back in altitude for our last night, north of the capital. We continue to appreciate these ephemeral visions or various encounters (women carrying heavy baskets filled with crops, fruit vendors, small stalls...), in this setting of rice fields and forests.
