The Fabled Scar Road
Kathmandu – Kakani – Bhudanilkhanta – 57km
Hard Ride, 5 to 6 hours
One of the most challenging rides in the valley that rewards you with fantastic mountain views on a clear day and around 9 km of single track riding in the dense jungle. The ride starts with a long on road climb of around 27 km to Kakani (you also have the option of going on the bus or in a jeep). The last 5 km of this climb are quite steep. Stop for rest and lunch in this tiny village and admire the Himalayan views. From here we enter the park and have a short but tough climb that may involve some push and carry. Things get exciting as we enter the jungle and the track narrows. Technical riding abounds for the next hour or so. Emerge from the jungle and drop almost vertical back down into the Kathmandu Valley. A truly great ride.
