Have been trekking with Third Rock a couple times and wanted to try something different. Was not disappointed; this trip was amazing.
Chitwan was a gem very well done and the wildlife, food, organized nature finery were world class
Some sections of the tour had some rough road as expected; just know this in advance and be prepared. Very rewarding experience.

Nepal Motorbike Tour - 10 days

Third Rock Adventures is the best I have traveled with in Nepal. They are highly professional with extra care for the clients.

Motorcycle Tour

Everything was great except for the heat in CHitwan. The temperature there was high compared to other cities like pokhara and lumbini. We had to drink water again and again and get off the clothes and cool ourselves. Thanks to our guide who managed cold drinks and water. The rooms were great and food was unique experience for us.

Best Motorcycle Adventure in NEPAL

We booked this tour prior 6 months before flying to Kathmandu. We were welcomed warmly, had dinner and beer with Naba and his team and also strolled around Thamel before hopping on a bike. We loved how Naba arranged great bikes and team for this motorcycle tour. Naba also helped us buy gorpo and other camera stuff at good price. He personally drove me to the shops and I couldn;t be more grateful to him. Overal, it was unforgetable experience.

Nepal Motorbike Tour

It's a great itinerary for motorcyclists who wants to explore Nepal on two wheels. I have been to ABC with THird Rock in 2016 and I have every reason to trust them for any adventure to NEPAL. This time as well they had high management team. We also test ride the bike to ensure if for the 10 days adventure. It's a wonder that Nepal has great destination for motorcycle tour as well. If you are reading this review, I have only two words: DO IT! you will love it.

My colleagues and I rode through the Nepal Highway to major cities like Pokhara, Bandipur, and Chitwan. We thoroughly enjoyed the ride for 10 days. Third Rock had the best bikes for the tour with guides and backups. We stopped at the best places for lunch and a short break. LUMBINI was the best destination for this adventure. We loved how they manage and operative exclusive tour like this.
