Not so long ago the idea of riding on a motorcycle across Nepal would have seemed an extremely masochistic endeavor given the conditions of the roads in this country back then. It was a form of travel not considered to be an option by very many travelers and there was doubtless wisdom in that decision then. Things have however changed in the recent past.
With the reconstruction of the east-west highway along the southern belt of the country, the main highway running across Nepal has become something of a biker's dream - and a motorcycle adventurer's delight. There are literally hundreds of miles of roads narrowing and winding through flatland or hills respectively, and they offer the motorcycle enthusiast endless miles of delightful riding through a still mostly pristine, Nepal.
This is especially true in the case of the western half of this highway comprising of the section between Chitwan National Park and the far-western border of Nepal. The highway in this region cuts across unspoiled regions of the Terai and also goes through the Bardia National Park, a Park that contains as much, if not more, wildlife spotting possibilities than Chitwan. The east west highway running from Kakaribhitta in the East to Mahendranagar in the West also allows for riders to head north and ride to places like Pokhara and Kathmandu, the surrounding regions of which are connected by good motorable roads. These areas include places like Tansen, Daman and the areas surrounding Kathmandu, which make for great short rides or en-route halts. All in all, the roads through many of the most beautiful regions of Nepal are ideally suited for motorcycle tours, assuming the service provider can provide reliable support services.
The possibilities thus for both long and short rides within Nepal - as well as rides into Tibet or India - exist and require further development. Riders from India often come into Nepal through Delhi or from places like Manali with either Mahendranager, or Bhairawa, being the access points. These are however more often individual riders than organized groups. In terms of rides to and from Tibet, the current access route would be the Tatopani/Khasa border to the North, a mere 4 hours ride from Kathmandu. This route however has not seen much development due to the difficulties of getting vehicle clearance for the region.
It is also possible to do sightseeing tours by motor cycle. You can visit many of the mountain view points by the motor cycle.
