Lhasa to Kathmandu Biking Tour

Lhasa to Kathmandu Bike Tour, The Lhasa to Kathmandu ride could be classified as one of the most demanding rides` open to cyclists. You have to deal with high altitude, long distances, various kinds of weather, bad road conditions and change of life style. The Lhasa to Kathmandu ride could be one of the highest in the world. Proper acclimatisation is vital to anyone hoping to complete this expedition. For this purpose we spent four days acclimatizing, while sightseeing and enjoying the city and surroundings of Lhasa.We begin with a flight of one hour from Kathmandu to Gongar International Airport in Tibet and drive to Lhasa, the main capital and starting point of our expedition. We have to cross 6 high passes and descend from the Tibetan Plateau before reaching our final destination, Nepal. The majority of our time we will spend on the Tibetan Plateau at heights above 4000 metres. Exploring various side valleys such as the route to Everest Base Camp, will involve cycling on much rougher dirt & stony tracks. Daily distances will range from 50 up to 110 kilometres. This may not sound particularly great, especially not to road-orientated cyclists, but the high altitude, difficult terrain, head winds and tough ascents will make cycling in this region a challenge for everyone. During this ride we will definitely take enough time to embrace the magnificent sights and discover the people and their culture, which altogether make this tour an unforgettable experience.
