The trip starts in Kathmandu, where you make initial preparations for the bike tour. Then, you follow the Prithvi Highway to Pokhara, which takes about 6 hours. As Mt. Machhapuchhre (6997m) welcomes you to the city, explore around and have fun. Then, you ride to Tatopani the next day and begin on the off-road trails.
