Nepal offers you one of the best adventure holidays in the world in this trip you will be enjoying one of the most amazing trails and experiencing relax holidays as well as rafting adventure. We stay at five outof the six best outlooks for viewing the mighty Himalaya, from Dhaulagiri in the west toEverest in the east, so you will not miss what is arguably the world’s finest mountain
scenery. In addition, the valley is also the historic center of Nepal, the place where
palaces and temples were built and rebuilt and Nepalese art and culture were
developed and refined. A combination of superb dirt trails and single track connect the
abundance of temples, monasteries and palaces making this both an exhilarating and

biking experience, as some trails are technical and there are some long climbs
rewarded by even bigger descents.
