Lost in East
This route leads us to the east of Nepal, to the lookout points of Basantapur and Taplejung. From here, we see His Majesty Everest, Makalu, Lhotse and Kangchenjunga mountains. We pass through the tea gardens, taking advantage of a great opportunity to purchase a delicious Himalayan tea for your loved ones and yourself. We overcome our route on road bikes. These places are totally unspoiled by tourists, which certainly please those who like to observe life as it is.
Day 1. We meet you at the airport and take to the hotel. After a short rest, we go for a walk through the city center. If you arrive in the morning, we can go to explore the sights of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur.
Day 2. We leave the Kathmandu valley through the east gate, go south and enjoy the serpentines, beautiful scenery, and gorgeous weather! In the evening, we overcome the mountainous part of Nepal and find ourselves оn the Terai plain.
Day 3. Our today’s destination is a small town of Dharan situated in the foothills. Dharan is famous for its mild climate. It is a favorite place to stay for retired Gurkhas.
Day 4. Today in the evening, we reach the first lookout in Basantapur, where we enjoy the open spaces and make memorable pictures against the Himalayas!
Day 5. If we are late for lookout in the evening, or mountains are covered with clouds, we have every chance to get up early and look at them in the morning. Usually the sky is clear and cloudless in the morning. Today we return to Dharan.
Day 6. It is time for a delicious tea! Today we ride to the famous tea gardens of Ilam. One part of the way is a highway, the rest of the road lies through serpentines. Your driving skills increase with each new turn.
Day 7. After drinking a plenty of tea, we go to the easternmost lookout located in Taplejung. Here we climb above the clouds and are able to observe all the splendor of the Himalayas! We spend the night at the campsite.
Day 8. Today we return to Ilam. The bike is already a part of you, so we steadily go through the endless turns and admire the unique landscape of Nepal.
Day 9. Today we leave the mountains, and the biggest part of our path is a highway. Highway is a name given to this road by locals. In fact, it bears little resemblance to a real highway. It’s just a main road stretching from east to west across the plains of Nepal. Be careful – people, cows, dogs, cats, hens and other barriers cross our way very often. Staying overnight in a hotel in the town of Lahan.
Day 10. Today we have another long day on the bike. In the evening, we need to reach Dhulikhel. It is a small town to the east of Kathmandu, famous for its panoramic views of the Himalayas.
Day 11. Today is our last day on the road. We ride from Dhulikhel to Nagarkot, take a last look at the Himalayas and back to our hotel in Kathmandu. We buy souvenirs and get together in the evening for dinner. Remembering our splendid trip and drinking to it!
Day 12. We transfer you from the hotel to the airport, and here our adventure ends. If you depart in the evening, we have time to walk around Kathmandu and explore the wonderful historic sights.
