An off-road motorcycle trip to Chisapani, Kathmandu was our first tour after lockdown. We were not able to explore places due to COVID restrictions. After 4-5 months of restrictions, we planned for a day trip to the outskirts of Kathmandu & explore possible offroad motorcycle tours in Nepal near Kathmandu for Travelers looking for a short trip around the city.
After some research, Chisapani sounded like a very good option which was perfect for a motorbike day trip near Kathmandu in terms of its versatility in its trail, which is already a famous destination for Hikers and Cycling enthusiasts.
Our lunch break during the trip.
Our ride started from the city to Sundarijal, a small village of Kathmandu which is popular for picnic spots with lush greenery, a serene environment & numerous waterfalls. It is around 1.5 km from Boudha passing through Sundarijal to the first check post of the army. This is where you can get your permits for the Shivapuri National Park area.
All domestic and international visitors need National park permits to entrance the Chisapani area.
While we were headed to the Shivapuri National Park, we were accompanied by a serene atmosphere. Riding through the jungle hearing bird chirpings was a pleasurable excursion for us while heading towards Chisapani from the National Park area.
The riding trail is mostly uphill until a certain point and slightly downhill to the Chisapani viewpoint and perfect trails to experience offroading which can be done in one day.
