Accommodation

During the tour, you will be staying at hotels and lodges arranged by Hearts and Tears. The accommodation standard along the way is excellent. Hearts and Tears has hand-picked the hotels from years of touring in Nepal and the quality and character of each place visited adds to the experience. The accommodation is on a twin-share basis (two people per room in a single bed each), with attached western bathroom. Toilet paper is provided at each hotel but it is wise to bring your own roll for stops during the day. If you would like to upgrade to a single room, this can be organized for an additional cost.

Program

Briefing session

The briefing session kicks off the evening before the tour starts at 17:00 at the Hearts and Tears' clubhouse located in Pokhara. The briefing session is factored into the tour dates. Accommodation is also included on the night of the briefing session.

The briefing session gives you a chance the meet the Hearts and Tears' crew, your fellow riders, and your bike! You meet in the clubhouse which is a short walk from your hotel, enjoy a beer, and then get even more excited for the upcoming ride. A welcome package is provided to every rider which contains the itinerary, route map, buff, some stickers, and a Hearts and Tears t-shirt.

Matt usually conducts the sessions, and over some local snacks, he will go through the tour details and explain how it all works. It's a time to ask any questions you may still have, but more importantly, it's a time to get familiar with everyone (and place bets on who's going to come off first!). By about 19:00, the session is over, giving you a chance to head out for dinner and explore Pokhara before the riding starts the following day.

Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Pokhara!

Relax by the lake and take in the beautiful surrounds by the day. Meet your riding team, your trusty steed, and tour briefing by night. Tomorrow you ride!

Day 2: Pokhara to Bandipur via Begnas Lake

Ride from Pokhara to the beautiful Begnas Lake for a cup of masala tea overlooking the Annapurna mountain range. Continue on to the hill-side village of Bandipur, climbing 1000 meters in little over eight kilometers. It’s a twisty ride that will test your cornering skills!

Day 3: Bandipur to Chitwan National Park via Gorkha

Ride from the central hill region of Nepal to the southern plateau via the ancient town of Gorkha, home to the mighty Gurkha warriors. You then ride to Chitwan National Park - Nepal’s oldest national park and home to the Bengal tiger!

Day 4: Chitwan National Park (jungle activities and ride)

Unwind and absorb the safari vibe. Explore the national park to spot rhinoceros, deer, sloth bear, various monkeys, crocodiles, and if you're lucky, the Bengal tiger. In the afternoon, you ride to some interesting local Tharu villages.

Day 5: Chitwan National Park to Lumbini

Ride west from Chitwan and take lunch at one of the favourite little hotel with a great pool to cool off in. Continue south stopping at the Indian border to witness the mayhem and then ride further west to Lumbini - the birthplace of Buddha.

Day 6: Lumbini to Tansen (Palpa)

Wake early to explore the world heritage listed reserve and visit the birthplace of Gautam Buddha - the main man. You will then take an absolutely extraordinary route to Palpa and arrive at an organic farm nestled in a quaint valley. Such good food!

Day 7: Tansen to Pokhara

You save the best riding day of the tour to last! By now, you are one with your machine and today will leave you with a grin from ear to ear. An outstanding six-hour ride along the ‘dragon’s tail’ that zig zags it’s way north into the foothills of Annapurna and Pokhara!

Bikes

Location

This tour will take you to explore Nepal. Each day is vastly different as you ride from the central hill-region of Nepal into Indo / Tibetan trade-stations, visit the birthplace of the uniting King of Nepal, roam the jungles of Chitwan National Park near India (home to the Bengal tiger), traverse the majestic valleys of Palpa where Hearts and Tears' favorite organic farm is located, and drag your pegs along the Dragon's Tail to Pokhara.

Nepal is the most bio-diverse country on Earth. The world’s highest peaks, many over 8000 meters, lie along the northern border with China. 150 kilometers to the south, at the Indian border, the scorched flatlands are near sea level. That’s the steepest incline anywhere and accordingly, the landscape and climate change dramatically with altitude.

Few people realize that Nepal is the world’s second-biggest water-producing nation, after Brazil. This sustains an incredible abundance of life. Woolly yaks trudge through Himalayan snow and ice, while rhinos and elephants forage in sweltering jungles below. Despite being a land-locked country, there are even freshwater dolphins. New species of flora and fauna, previously unknown to science, are discovered on a regular basis.

Nepal only stretches about 800 kilometers east to west, but maps fail to convey the scale of the scrunched-up mountainous landscape. The sheer size is hard to describe or capture in photos but perfect for exploring by motorbike.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM).

Most major airlines fly into Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM) - which is the only international airport in Nepal. From Europe, either Turkish Airlines or Qatar often provide the best connections, and from Australia / New Zealand both AirAsia, Singapore Airlines, and Thai Airways are good options.

Arrival by bus

Tourist buses leave Kathmandu every morning around 7 a.m. and cost between 10 - 25 USD. The first hour or two is congested, but the chaos is fascinating. The road winds its way through beautiful scenery. Buses normally arrive in Pokhara mid-afternoon at the tourist bus park, a 20-30 minutes' walk from Lakeside.

Arrival by taxi

Taxis can be organized for around 100 USD one way. It’s cost-effective for two or three people and much more comfortable than a bus. Depart when you like, stop when you like, and get dropped off at your hotel. The downside to any form of road transport is that you can be delayed by traffic jams, accidents, or the occasional strike.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 40% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 60 days before arrival.
