Leaving behind the bustling streets of Kathmandu, riders hit the road, their spirits high with anticipation. The route initially takes them westward towards the enchanting city of Pokhara. The journey offers a delightful mix of winding mountain roads, picturesque valleys, and panoramic views of snow-capped peaks. As the motorcycles navigate the twists and turns, riders are treated to the ever-changing landscapes of terraced fields, roaring rivers, and charming villages.

After a thrilling ride, the motorcycles roll into Pokhara, a popular tourist destination nestled beside the tranquil Phewa Lake. Riders take a well-deserved break, basking in the serenity of the surroundings and enjoying the breathtaking views of the Annapurna range reflected in the pristine waters. Exploring the vibrant lakeside area, riders can indulge in boating, paragliding, or simply relax and relish the mesmerizing ambiance of Pokhara.

Leaving Pokhara behind, the next leg of the adventure takes riders to Burtibang, a small town located in the Rukum district. The journey from Pokhara to Burtibang is an off-road escapade, where riders navigate through rugged terrains, forested trails, and steep inclines. This challenging stretch tests their skills and endurance, but the reward is the stunning natural beauty that unfolds before their eyes. Burtibang welcomes them with its warm hospitality and quaint charm, providing a glimpse into the rural lifestyle of Nepal.

Continuing their expedition, riders head towards Rukum West, an off-the-beaten-path destination that showcases the raw beauty of Nepal’s countryside. The ride to Rukum West is an adventure in itself, as riders tackle remote trails, river crossings, and dense forests. The region’s untamed wilderness and the warm smiles of the locals create a unique and memorable experience.

From Rukum West, the journey continues to Surkhet, the administrative hub of the Karnali province. The road winds through dramatic landscapes, offering breathtaking views of rolling hills, deep gorges, and picturesque valleys. Surkhet is an ideal stopover to rest and replenish before continuing on the next leg of the adventure.

As the motorcycles venture deeper into the mountains, riders make their way to Kalikot, in the far-western region of Nepal. The road to Kalikot is a thrilling combination of twists, turns, and narrow paths, showcasing the untouched beauty of the region.

Leaving Kalikot, the highlight of the expedition awaits – Rara Lake. This pristine alpine lake, located in the Rara National Park, is a true gem of the Himalayas. Riders navigate through a challenging yet rewarding path, as they ascend to higher altitudes surrounded by lush greenery and rhododendron forests. The crystal-clear waters of Rara Lake shimmer under the sun, reflecting the majestic snow-capped peaks that encircle it. The peaceful ambiance and the serenity of Rara Lake make it a perfect spot for riders to unwind and connect with nature. Camping by the lakeside allows them to immerse themselves fully in the tranquility and beauty of this remote paradise.

Leaving Rara Lake with a heavy heart, riders resume their journey, this time heading towards Bardia National Park. As they descend from the mountains, the landscape transforms into vast plains and fertile farmlands. And through the secret passage within the valley entrails we head towards Bardia National Park. Bardia National Park, located in the Terai region, is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts. Riders take a break from their motorcycles and join on an exciting jungle safari, hoping to catch a glimpse of Bengal tigers, one-horned rhinoceroses, and other exotic wildlife species that call this park their home.

The next destination on the itinerary is Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha. This sacred pilgrimage site attracts Buddhist devotees from all over the world. Riders explore the tranquil gardens, monasteries, and temples that adorn the area, paying homage to the revered spiritual leader. The peaceful aura of Lumbini offers a welcome respite, allowing riders to reflect and find solace in the teachings of Buddhism. Maya Devi temple and Asoka Pillar are center of attractions here.

With unforgettable memories etched in their minds, riders hop back on their motorcycles and begin the journey back to Kathmandu. The return route takes them through picturesque countryside, small towns, and vibrant markets. Riders can make stopovers along the way.

As they approach Kathmandu, a sense of fulfillment and accomplishment fills the air. The motorcycle adventure, spanning diverse terrains and great destinations, has come to an end.
