Places to buy and hire mountain bikes in Kathmandu

The best way to witness the amazing grandeur of Nepal is definitely by walking but mountain biking provides a great new alternative. Although not necessarily new, since mountain biking in Nepal persisted long time ago; the trend of hiring a bike from different shops, cycling with your buddies to a new location once in a while and participating in an event has just been soaring up.

Regardless of the time, the trend of mountain biking before and after hasn’t seen much of a change in Nepal. Though mountain bikes these days are highly advanced and has numerous gears and are designed to make you feel more comfortable, it doesn’t change the fact that it is an adventurous sport that’ll test your limit and fill you up with fun and adventure, and perhaps, this is the reason why it has been successful to attract a lot of youngsters.

Looking at Nepal’s geographic location, it is fair to say that mountain biking has a huge potential and has already been touted as a ‘trip-of-a-lifetime’ by those who’ve already experienced it. This untapped potential has slowly been surfacing into the mind of people and hence, as a result, the growing business of mountain bike shops in Kathmandu valley, especially in Lalitpur.
