Trip Overview

The Nagarkot Dhulikhel Cycling Tour is a beautiful country-side tour of Nepal’s city-periphery. It presents amazing aspects of the country’s rural areas that are decorated with the beauty of natural environments. As you make your way through the lush tracks into the mostly-pastoral terrain that spreads across city-circumferences, you will be blessed with the tranquil nature of the village-life and wonderfully verdant surroundings. Correspondingly, it is quite difficult to feel rejuvenated in the city being surrounded by the noise and the vehicles. But the Cycling Tour into the tame wilderness outside the cities is a perfect respite to enjoy and uplift the spirit. Make your way into the popular destinations of Nepal that are quite easily accessible from the capital. Enjoy the natural beauty of the lush woodlands and hilly terrains outside the city. Rejuvenate your senses with the fresh natural provinces of Nepal’s hilly enclaves.

One of the major highlights of the Nagarkot Dhulikhel Cycling Tour is the hill station of Nagarkot. A former royal retreat for the royal family of the country, Nagarkot is of the most popular hiking destination in Nepal that is situated near Kathmandu. It is a beautiful destination that is blessed with the beauty of an unsullied nature and the natural painting of the country’s Himalayan tapestry. As you cycle through the tracks at Nagarkot, you will be in the company of the distant Himalayas that can be seen from here. Moreover, the view-tower at Nagarkot is most famous for its sunrise and sunset views amidst the mountain peaks. Along with the natural beauty, you will be peddling along amazing Himalayan shadows that decorate the faraway vista.

Likewise, Dhulikhel is another feature of the Cycling Tour. As you meander your way to Dhulikhel on your bike, you will be greeted by an amazing Himalayan panorama that unfolds from the edges of the Dhulikhel hill. Peddling through the verdant scenery, you will constantly be in the company of prominent mountain peaks like the Langtang Lirung, the Dorje Lakpa, Gaurisankar and the Melungtse among many others. You can also enjoy Dhulikhel’s Newari ambiance as you cycle along the temple-lined streets of the village. As such, the Nagarkot Dhulikhel Cycling Tour is a perfect blend of the natural beauty that the hill enclaves of Nepal possess along with the cultural and religious riches that it beholds. It is also a great way to enjoy the distant views of the mountains in a very quaint setting.

Bogdan Ilie, USA My wife and I were lucky to have chosen Nepal Hiking Team to plan our trip. We opted for a private guide and had a porter as well. We waited at the airport, and we were dropped off there as well when we left Nepal. Our guide, Ram, made sure that our trip was organized flawlessly and that we were doing well and happy at all times. He chose the best available teahouses, and we were allowed to chose the food from the menu in all of them (there seem to be agencies that say you can either choose dal bhat or pay out of pocket). We were even served, during dinner, sliced apples carried by the porter. Ram was very knowledgeable, and he shared information related to mountain peaks, vegetation, and animals. As we saw, his English skills are excellent. Above all, he is friendly and has a positive attitude, so we enjoyed talking and interacting with him. The porter, Bhola, was also very friendly. He looked like he was 50 kg but carried 55-65 kg easily. Overall, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience to which Ram, Bhola, and Nepal Hiking Team contributed substantially. One of the owners, Ganga, even offered free rides to do the PCR tests or other purposes. We couldn't have hoped for better treatment from this agency.

Lucie H, UK In May this year - some friends and I joined the NHT For 16 days. Every fine detail was considered, with our guides and porters going above & beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy. Their knowledge and experience created a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us all. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Hiking Team to anyone! They made this experience perfect, thank you, guys.  
Mike, USA I went with my girlfriend to the Everest Base Camp with a guide and porter from Nepal Hiking Team. Right from the pick-up from the airport, we felt like valued clients, and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed in an otherwise hectic city. From the moment the trek started, our guide Bheg ensured we were comfortable and constantly checked on our physical state throughout each day and provided advice and assistance where we needed it. Overall, the experience was one I'll never forget, primarily because I proposed at the top and because the Nepal Hiking team made the experience as stress-free and as organized as possible, all with a smile on their face at all times. I highly recommend NHT.
Megan Y., China Ganga, Balaram, and the team were fantastic; even when we had a 24-hour flight delay, they re-scheduled everything without fuss or fee. We had an excellent driver for just us (and guide where we had them). We even changed things along the way, and whether the driver, guide, or agent, they were more than willing to help and be flexible. :) The trip took in some hiking, some sightseeing, some relaxing, the jungle, and for each occasion and location, we were provided a specialist guide for the event/location. The hotels they chose for us were precisely our requirements based on the activity we were experiencing on any given day. Balaram even met us many times in person to round off the experience and ensure all was well and take honest feedback in person - the personal touch makes you feel even more appreciated and welcome as a customer. We would recommend anyone contact the team if they are planning a trip to Nepal. Thank you, guys, for a memorable vacation.
Jonathan, USA The team NHT provided the best possible service. They were attentive in every aspect in the months leading up to the trek through emails and were responsive and thorough in addressing my questions and concerns. During our tour, Bheg (our guide) and our porter were there to take care of our (myself and one other trekker) needs and always smile and graciously. I have used other more expensive and well-known trekking teams in the Himalayas in the past and would rank NHT on an equal or higher plain. Bheg has many years of experience, as did our porter, and was very competent in their roles and Bheg in his knowledge of the area and the trek. Though our porter did not speak very much, Bheg was kind enough to translate when asked, and our porter was equally attentive in assisting Bheg and us to ensure a successful trek. Very competitive price and an excellent team and experience. I highly recommend them.
