We leave valley starting our 640m climb to Kakani on smooth paved road traversing the holy Nagarjun mountain named after the famous Tibetan Buddhist saint. The road gently contours magnificently terraced mountain sides dotted with small villages perched seemingly on the edge. Cresting the Kakani saddle you get beautiful Himal views and a taste of what awaits you at the top of the remaining 20 minute climb.

Day 03: Kakani-Nagarkhot
Walking up to a stunning Himalayan view breakfast we ride off-road on the Himalayan Mountain Bike Championship race course climbing and descend (640m) to the valley floor. Reaching Budhanikantha we will visit the (5m) stone image of "Reclining Vishnu" a testament to the skill of the 13th century artisans. Heading east we snake off-road through rice paddies towards Gomcha, home of the revered Vajrakali temple sitting over the Dhobi Khola river. We contour more ridges with moderate elevation gain before descending into the maize of rice paddies and more off road single track to the medieval town of Bhaktapur. After a short tour of this ancient town we gently climb to Nagarkhot (2174m) for more spectacular Himalayan views. Overnight at camp.

After Himalayan sunrise, breakfast at our lodge and ample time to take photos we ride off-road down 803m through villages that display colorful ethnic diversity that makes up the Kathmandu valley. Each group farms and dresses differently and speaks different languages, all within 20 km of each other. We pedal through Sankhu on our way to the biggest Stupa in the valley, Boudhnath and what is commonly called "Little Tibet".
