After breakfast, we load our bikes and head towards Godavari. The drive will be roughly 1 hour to the start point. We bike 4 Stages today! Upon arrival at Godavari, we settle down for a nice Nepali tea before we start climbing to the top of the hill. Phulchwoki stands at 2600m and is also the highest point around Kathmandu. The trails are a mixture of single tracks and few jeep tracks in between. Prepare yourself to ride switchbacks, roots, rocks and a few technical sections. After the completion of 4 Stages, we meet at the base of Godavari with our vehicle and head towards the main town for lunch. Overnight at a hotel in Thamel.

Today, we bike north side of the valley. Shivapuri is a National Park. You will love it here. The ride might be a little rough but the reward is awesome! The drive to the start point is about 1 hour. The trail is mostly single track throughout. Be prepared to make some climbs in between. We will be doing 4 Stages today as well. For lunch, we will be going to Boudhnath. This is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. In the evening, we drive back to Thamel and settle down do farewell dinner.
