Of all our cycling tours the Nepal bicycle holiday is the most visually diverse; nowhere else on Earth will you find a greater variety of landscapes within as small an area as Nepal. Nestled along the spine of the Himalayas between the snow-capped peaks of Tibet and the Ganges plains of India, Nepal is a magical place, rich in natural and cultural heritage. Nepal is a kingdom of high icy mountains, deep valleys and subtropical jungle. Dotted with temples, medieval cities and tiny hillside village communities, Nepal is perfect to explore by bicycle.
Nepal has a spectacular topography, containing eight of the world's ten highest peaks including Mount Everest which sits on the border with Tibet. For a relatively small country, Nepal boasts a high number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites - ten in total, both natural and cultural.
Nepal is a country that is as historically interesting as it is geographically breathtaking. Perhaps because it has never been a colony, Nepal has a unique and very strong cultural identity. You will hear as many as fifty different languages spoken by twelve different ethnic groups. Buddhism and Hinduism are both practised in Nepal as well as older Nepalese religions.
The Red Spokes Nepal cycling holiday offers a complete tour of this wonderful country's diverse landscape and culture. Bicycling from the Kathmandu Valley you will travel over mountain passes and into the tropical plains of the Terai to explore the flora and fauna of Chitwan National Park. You will climb through traditional villages as the landscape soars towards the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. The Kingdom of Nepal has long exerted a pull on the Western imagination. Join us on this exhilarating and memorable cycling adventure holiday and discover it's wonders for yourself.
