Downhill Mountain Bike Riding & money info pls

My husband is going to Kathmandu for a week at the end of a joint trip to Chiang Mai in mid November. He has heard that there is good downhill mountain bike riding around Kathmandu & wants to check it out before we go for a longer trip there next year.

So, does anyone know of any downhill clubs, organisations or tour companies there? He would need to hire a decent bike this trip.

He is aware of downhill biking activities in Pokhara but because of limited time prefers to stay in Kathmandu.

Also, are Aussie dollars readily exchangeable?

Thanks in advance,

Heather

I do not have much information but biking in Nepal but I can also confirm that Aussie Dollars are widely accepted in Nepal. There are numerous money exchanges and banks which will easily accept your currency.

Enjoy!
