Kathmandu is world-renowned for its stunning mountains and this clip shows the combination of the calm beauty of the city and the stunning riding opportunities.

Mandil Pradhan takes in the city, grabbing food and riding the streets and then takes to the mountains for some hardcore riding.

Kathmandu is the capital and the only metropolitan city in Nepal nestling in the Himalayas. It boasts beautiful buildings and is surrounded by four major mountains Shivapuri, Phulchoki, Nagarjun, and Chandragiri so the mountain biking should be out of this world.

Himalayan Rides runs biking tours in the area and is run by Mandil Pradhan a Nepalese mtb rider. The company seeks to “uncover the lives of the locals as well as exploring their landscape, history, culture and cuisine, and ultimately leave our clients with the unforgettable experience of having ridden beneath each region’s surface and discovered the heartbeat within.” an ethos that is captured in the film above.
