Kathmandu and The Valley

Quiet mornings, water sprinkled in the streets, rickshaws few and in between. Afternoons bustling with traffic, boiling, noisy and persistent. Evenings with power cuts, lit candles and live music streaming out of bars and hangouts. And beyond the urban, Kathmandu valley spreads out, green and lively, inviting to be explored by bike.

In old days you had the feeling that you could reach the mountains from Kathmandu rooftops. Now a days with a few millions more people, dust and smoke do not always allow the view to the snowcapped peaks. But that said, Kathmandu has not lost its intensity. Actually to the contrary. The color exploding markets, narrow streets, carefully crafted wood carved temples, hashish sellers, adventure gear shops and outstanding bookshops with the finest coffee table books on Himalaya and its people.

Outside Kathmandu but still closer day by day, are the fine historic cities of Bhaktapur and Patan. Perfect to visit on a mountain bike trip. Further beyond, are Dhulikhel and Nagarkot, viewpoints from where Himalaya can be enjoyed from distance.

Almost everybody go to Nepal to experience the Himalaya. Everybody come through Kathmandu before and after the trek. As such the noisy, dusty colorful city is the true, if not perfect, contrast to the slowness, quietness and fresh air soon waiting in the mountains.
