Lhasa - Kathmandu Mountain Bike Tour
Biking on the roof of the world and to the base camp of Mt Everest –this is an ultimate biking adventure . The Lhasa Kathmandu mountain bike tour offers chances to deeply appreciate the beauty of the Tibetan land and its culture and know its people closely . This is the only tour that enables you to reach to the base camp of mt Everest in a bicycle !
Arriving in Kathmandu , you enjoy the tour of exotic Kathmandu and fly to Lhasa . It is a dramatic flight across the Himalayas . For a couple of days we tour around Lhasa and acclimatize against high altitude .
The Lhasa kathmandu mountain bike tour then takes us through the ancient cities of Shigatse and Gyantse , beautiful lakes and crosses five high passes above 5000 m . While cycling this 1000 km trail on the roof of the world , we make a steep descent of 4600 m , the highest in any mountain bike tour in the world and also visit the spectacular northern base camp of Mt Everest before reaching Kathmandu .
Cycling in the remote corner of the Himalayas amidst fluttering Buddhist flags on the high passes , visiting ancient monasteries or gazing on the spectacular Himalayan peaks- it is a trip of a lifetime – rewarding as well as challenging.
