Cycling around Dhulikhel
Take a leisurely 16km cycle ride from Dhulikhel. Start with a climb up to Namobuddha Temple before working your way through the forest past small villages and rice paddies to the town of Panauti before being driven back to Dhulikhel.
From Dhulikhel, ride on a narrow road for about 7 kilometres before starting an off-road ascent up to Namobuddha. The climb is of a steady grade and is about 5 kilometres long. Namobuddha is a sacred shrine and an extremely important destination for Buddhist pilgrims. The single track descent through the jungles right below Namobuddha is fantastically fast and a whole load of fun. After the fun downhill section ride through small villages and rice paddies for about 4 kilometres into the bustling town of Panauti. From Panauti drive back to Dhulikhel.
