For all the riders who are looking for adventure in Nepal, the Motorcycle Tour from Kathmandu
to Muktinath is a rider’s heaven. Lavish deserted landscape with glowing snowcapped

makes it stand out as one of the best riding experience in Nepal. This thrilling experience of

before riding away the next morning. The next stop is Kalopani as we ride along the dirt roads.
On the third day, you will drive from Kalopani to Muktinath. The road to Muktinath is
comparatively better. We ride through the world’s deepest gorge, Kali Gandaki Gorge, while
