About this Cycle Tour

Nepal's mountainous terrain isn't an obvious destination for those seeking a leisurely cycle trip, but the lowlands of the Terai offer just that along with a rich religious heritage of Buddhism and Hinduism, medieval towns, quaint hillside villages and protected wildlife.

Reviews

incredible experience

Elizabeth HubbsJanuary 2020

We have just returned from a Spice Roads tour in Nepal and found this to be as enjoyable as previous SR tours we have undertaken. There was a good mix of cycling and non cycling activities with cultural, religious and animal watching opportunities all included. Our guides (particularly the head guide Chandra) and drivers were fabulous...looking after our every need, entertaining us and also keeping us safe. I would recommend a trip to Nepal as it is fascinating and has stunning mountain views.
