The home of the pristine Himalayas and the birthplace of Gautam Buddha, rich biodiversity, serene destinations, and cultural heritage, Nepal is also popular for its serpentine roads passing through the uneven hills that are well suited for the motorbike tour. The Nepal Circuit Motorbike Tour converges into a cultural and adventurous journey through the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of central Nepal. En route, the cultural ambiance and natural supremacy of the country embrace us all along.

The 11-day Nepal Circuit Motorbike Tour begins in Kathmandu and advances to the various cities of Nepal before concluding in Kathmandu. The tour begins with a Motorbike test ride to three different UNESCO-designated sites in Kathmandu, namely Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, and Kathmandu Durbar Square. After completing the test ride, the tour advances to the touristic city of Pokhara, to the west of Kathmandu. While at Pokhara, you can enjoy some of the pristine destinations and visit the popular tourist sites of Davis Falls, Mahendra Cave, and Peace Pagoda. Afterward, you’ll head to the historic town of Tansen, Palpa, which lies only 129km south of Pokhara. From here, you’ll descend further south to the UNESCO-designated site of Lumbini. It is renowned in the world for being the birthplace of Gautam Buddha. You’ll indulge in a visit to the historical Mayadevi Temple. The tour moves east from Lumbini to the exotic destination of Chitwan National Park. The oldest national park in Nepal boasts rich biodiversity and some of the rarest wildlife, including the Royal Bengal Tiger and the one-horned rhino. Before heading back to Kathmandu, you’ll take a detour and head north to the hill station of Daman. The serene location is popular for enjoying the panorama of the mountains, namely Annapurna III (7555m) and Gaurishankar (7134m). The tour concedes to Kathmandu. Unlike other tours, you've not bound to a chauffeur-driven vehicle or a scheduled time frame. You can take the motorbike wherever you like and enjoy the freedom of riding. You can undertake the tour during spring (Mar-Jun) and autumn (Sep-Nov), as they guarantee the best weather and accessibility.
