Kathmandu Valley Rim

Above Budhanilkantha. The hills on the far side of Kathmandu Valley amazingly clear.

Kathmandu is especially beautiful in the winter. It is surrounded by a ring of hills which can be linked together to allow circumnavigation of the entire Kathmandu Valley. It makes for a 100 mile journey with a lot of ascent and descent. “It’s a great adventure,” says Lizzy. She should know – setting an FKT on this route in March 2016. It’s the perfect boost for your winter training or purely a nice experience in itself.
