1st Mountain Bike Race on 29 April in Rasuwa !!!!!!

Mountain Biking in the Tamang Heritage Trails of Rasuwa, Langtang

One of the nearest destinations from Kathmandu, Langtang, Rasuwa, is one of the most beautiful destination Nepal has to offer.

Its easy access, close proximity to the capital and unparalleled beauty of majestic mountains dotted with quaint villages rich in culture makes it a nature lover’s delight.

The mountain bike race is the first of its kind in a region that has remained untouched for decades.

Himalaya Expeditions is also guided by the same principle “development through tourism”.
