Nepal is an exceedingly mountainous nation, through few of the highest passes (and most of the highest peaks) in the planet. As an outcome, it is highly recommended that the riders can carry through multiple pairs of inner and external thermal at the time of motorbike touring in Nepal. Rain in the season within June and November is modest, but it would be an absolute to carry rain equipment with the motorbike riders.

That comes through high pass? Altitude sickness. Even Though there isn’t a looming risk of it everywhere they ride across Nepal, riders are to be advised to keep them hydrated all times since it is equitably easy to get dehydrated at high elevations without knowing. If the riders are riding to areas which are above 8000 ft, then it is recommended for the riders to acclimatize themselves at lower elevations for a night or two of energy drinks and altitude sickness tablets.


Nepal being a small nation, majority of the locations to ride to from the capital city of Kathmandu won’t be further than 400 kms at one expanse, but irregular broken roads on the way can mean distances take much longer to ride than they are familiar.

Accordingly, the riders are to plan their ride length in a way where they leave early and they are to ride for around half a day at the time they stop at numerous beauty locations during the ride on the way for pictures and short hikes. If they have ridden in other places in which they’ve had to do 1000 to 1500 miles each day, then this ride would provide the riders much variety of preference and possibly, a better one!


For riding motorbikes in Nepal, the riders will be required to have essential documentation aside from a Carnet that involves a motorbike license. The normal license that they carry all places would do since there are too many police checkpoints all over Nepal. If the rider could obtain an international driving license done too, then it would be better for them to hold. Also riders are to be sure to have a travel insurance policy that covers emergency medical evacuation.

To tell about the carnet document for the motorbike, a carnet can be acquired from the local motoring authority of the rider’s nation since it is needed to enter Nepal. The rider’s motorbike will be permitted in Nepal for six months through the carnet they get done, they can exit Nepal within and re-enter but the in-inclusive time duration of the motorbike’s stay will be bounded to 6 months, and it will expire in 12 months. So in simple words, the riders can stay in Nepal for a complete six months out of any of the twelve months in a year.
