Tibet a rich and beautiful land with an average altitude of over 4,000m, Within Tibet there are more then fifty peaks above 7000m and several at over 8000m. The Tibet Autonomous Region has a population of 2,000,000, mainly Tibetans, and an area of 1.2 million sq. km. The Tibetans have a wonderful culture developed over centuries of isolation. There are great temples and monasteries where robed monks still wear their traditional yellow hats.

Biking in Tibet is non-technical as the route is along hard-packed roads, but the altitude is always a factor as we cross six passes at over 5000m. The route is also remote and the weather often cold, so the journey is not for the faint-hearted. During the journey you will cross several 5000 meter passes, visit the world highest Base camp and you will have great North West view of Mt. Everest then you enjoy the world’s longest downhill ride. You’ll also pass through a breathtaking scenic mix of alpine plateaus and cross the Trans-Himalaya ranges and lush jungle. The route does, however, finish with a long downhill finish to reach Nepal.
