The Life Cycle mountain biking resort is based around a farm stunningly located in the lush Churia Hills of southern Nepal. The farm lies on the banks of the meandering Rapti River not far from the town of Hetauda, three to four hours from the capital Kathmandu.
Established by four passionate mountain bikers, the resort combines the best from the world of outdoor adventure with the comfort of quality accommodation and delicious home-cooked food. Whether you want to take a breather from an intensive 15-day hike through the majestic valleys of the Upper Mustang or you feel like delving into Nepal’s lesser-explored natural beauties, the Life Cycle resort would be the correct choice for your next travel destination in Nepal.
At Life Cycle, both experienced cycling lovers and complete beginners can feel at home, with biking courses offered to improve your abilities at each level. What’s more, the hills surrounding the farm offer a variety of biking challenges: be it a relaxing ride through the relatively flat terrain of rice fields or a more exciting downhill through forests and hills. There’s even a pump track at the resort to test your skills in the dirt and engage in a fun workout! And if you decide it’s time for a change, there’s always the option to explore the picturesque countryside on foot or take a dive in the pool.
In order to most accurately meet your expectations, Life Cycle offers three kinds of tailored packages to choose from: Free Ride, Cross Country and Family.
A typical tour begins with pickup in Kathmandu and a drive straight to the Life Cycle farm. You will arrive at the resort just in time for a pleasant lunch and with a few hours in hand to relax and test the waters of the swimming pool.
Day One then continues with a premier bike ride in the afternoon designed to best fit your abilities and interests. The return to the farm will be accompanied by a pleasant surprise: a smoking hot and alluring barbecue dinner is already waiting for you!
Day Two comes loaded with excitement and adventure, with a morning ride to discover the surrounding villages, an afternoon bike tour into the lush jungle of Sal Forest and a hearty lunch and relaxation time in-between.
On Day Three, you can choose to head back to Kathmandu or prolong your stay at Life Cycle, where a lot more is waiting to be discovered. As the owners put it, “You’ll never want to leave… but you can always come back”!
If you want to experience a side of Nepal few have seen before and spend your holiday doing what you love in the most memorable of natural surroundings, then Life Cycle may just be the solution you’ve been looking for. Book a trip and live the mountain biking adventure of your lifetime!
