As we ride through the diverse Nepalese terrain, we'll discover the charming small town of Gorkha and the beautifully restored village of Bandipur, both offering stunning views of the Himalayas. We'll also visit Pokhara, a picturesque town nestled on the shores of Lake Bengas, surrounded by lush green woods and the awe-inspiring Annapurna mountain range

Along the way, we'll visit the Temple and Town of Muktinath, take a U-turn and head back towards Baglung and Tansen, breaking up the journey towards Chitwan and the Terai plains, a significant agricultural area for Nepal.

No trip to Nepal is complete without a motorcycle free day in the heart of Chitwan National Park, where we'll have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of plants and animals. From one-horned rhinos and monkeys to crocodiles, we may even have a chance to spot a Royal Bengal tiger, leopard, or bear!
