Explore the old kingdom of Kathmandu by motorbike before heading off to experience the amazing range of Nepal’s lustrous landscapes. You will ride through the valleys of the Sun Kosi (River of Gold) to reach a newly built road set just across from Mount Everest amongst 5 other mighty 8000+m peaks and more 6000m+ peaks of the Himalayan range of mountains. We enter the Solukhumbu region of Nepal, the most popular region for trekking in Nepal and home to Mount Everest.
