Arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport at Kathmandu and transfer to the hotel by our representative. Welcome drinks on arrival and briefing of tour program by one of the representative from Aarya Village Travel.
After Breakfast we start cycling from Thamel to Hattiban from where we cycle little uphill grunt. We cycle through pine trees and prayer flags to preview the upper part of the route. There are multiple jump options to scout along the way. Follow the ridge to a flat knoll and point your bike back downhill. Pause a moment to take in the surrounding views. Now it's time to drop your seat post, no pedaling necessary from here on out. Descend what you just came up. The very upper section is open and then gradually screams through tall pines. Roll over a beam and catch your breath as you stare down a long staircase on the ridge of an open hillside. It's a bit overwhelming at first but once you've started to chatter your way down the steps you'll be focused on the route ahead. This section ends above a village and will surely have your forearms and calves screaming. Continue right at the bottom of the stairs on steep single track down to a road. The route finishes with some steep, slippery and gnarly terrain through pockets of forest and village, ending at the local spring in Gwaldaha and finally we ride back to Thamel.
After Breakfast, drive for about 1-1.5 hrs to Sankhu. Sankhu is medieval Newar village which is major pilgrimage center for Hindus. The temple of Vajrajogini is situated here where a big mela is organized for one month. People keep fasting and worship here leaving their home for one month here in the name of goddess Parvati. From here we hike to Nagarkot. It is an easy hiking through the nice terraces and fields. We hike for 3 to 4 hours to reach Nagarkot.
