Lhasa to Kathmandu Mountain Biking

This is perhaps the ultimate biking trip. Being in the mystical city of Lhasa you travel over the highest as well as largest plateau in the world visiting Mount Everest Base Camp along the way. The Tibetan plateau is buttressed along its southern flank by the Himalayas. This wind swept plain is rich in its diversity with thousands of lakes; extensive grassland, bubbling streams, glaciers and icefalls. You can rub shoulders with nomads and their yak herds. This rugged tour covers 1104 km over 15 days finishing with the world’s longest downhill 156km, dropping 4500m. What a Cyclist dream! This is not a technical ride and can be enjoyed by mountain and road bike alike.
