Be a traveller, not a tourist

Three weeks out of this world! Test your fitness on the mountain passes, see the most incredible desert landscape and push yourself outside of your comfort zone (Tibetan toilets anyone?) but more importantly see, smell and touch Tibet from a bike.

LHASA TO KATHMANDU RIDE

An amazing experience cycling in breathtaking scenery. A great physical challenge cycling up steep hills with not a lot of oxygen to help!

LHASA TO KATHMANDU RIDE

The chaos of Kathmandu, the magnificent Potala Palace of Lhasa, an epic ride across the vast and inhospitable Tibetan Plateau, the tough climbs up the 5000m passes rewarded by panoramic views of snow-capped mountains, and arriving at the base of Everest.  It is almost close enough to touch.

LHASA TO KATHMANDU RIDE

A great trip but for those reading this be clear that you do not ride the whole way from Lhasa to Kathmandu. That said, our leader made all the right calls. Hindsight is a wonderful thing!!

LHASA TO KATHMANDU RIDE

If you are a fit, confident cyclist who is after a cycling challenge this might not be the right holiday for you. If you have the ability and ambition to ride either the whole distance or at least as many of the passes as posibble you more than likely will not be able to. This is due to compulsory transfers and decissions made for the benifit of the majority of the group. What does this mean? If seven of the group want to ride and nine do not, you will more than likely not be riding that section of the ride. Mind you there are more challenges then just the cycling on this trip that can halt even the fittest out there.

LHASA TO KATHMANDU RIDE

Arrive in beautiful Kathmandu, climb 1000m in 36degC avec plenty of Cola, have a Swing or two, get to the top and hey "that's where we're heading off to" :-)  Fly to Lhasa, experience superb culture, absolutely stunning scenery, fantastic cycling (even though you could do with an extra pair of lungs!), incredibly moving people, weather extremes and tours guides (and their helpers) that would outshine ANY others!A journey into the unknown but worth every single penny and more.... its a life changer for sure on every level.
