# Balaju to kakani – Mountain biking day tour:
Set off towards Kakani, a view point off the bifurcation at Balaju. It is a slow and easy ascent to this hill resort 23 km northwest of Kathmandu. The entire trip offers a breath taking view of the valley along with the fresh and serene atmosphere of the hills. The route passes through forests, waterfalls and meadows. There are several restaurants on the way if you feel like resting or munching on some snacks.
# Bhaktapur to Changu Narayan biking – down hill valley rim bike:
Heading north from Bhaktapur, turn left from the road leading to Nagarkot to reach Changu Narayan. The four-hour ride is an easy one with panoramic views of the mountains, fields and the Manohara River. There is also a small village and on its eastern side a temple.
(A hike to Nagarkot from Changu Narayan takes five hours and is more adventurous if you want to do it.)

Starting off towards the east from Sankhu, it takes around three-four hours to hike to Nagarkot, a hill resort 32 km east of Kathmandu. The road passes through terraced fields and strutted houses. This route is fun for mountain biking too. Returning from Nagarkot, we can take a different route leading towards Banepa via Nala which takes five-six hours or Via Bhaktapur , Changu Narayan.
