TIBET MOUNTAIN BIKE EXPEDITIONS

 

Next group departure: July 12 to August 3, 2011' ..... Cost: $3895US

 

 

 

        A RIDE ON THE ROOF TOP OF THE WORLD by bike or jeep or both. 

 

The mystic Shangri-La, the forbidden kingdom on the roof of the world has captured man's imagination for centuries. Great explorers and adventurers of the century have ventured into this holy land, rendered inaccessible by the hostile conditions and bandits that waylaid them across the Himalayas.

 

Despite untold ravages brought about during the Cultural Revolution, Tibet's past grandeur, majesty, magic and mystery still remain undiminished. Today one can still see nomads herding their yaks, pilgrims worshipping at sacred shrines and the expansive striking and enduring topography. Tibet is an truly adventurer's paradise. There is no other better way to see it than by bike or jeep.

ROUTE DESCRIPTION:

There are six major passes to be negotiated on the Lhasa to Kathmandu route as it runs westwards. The road is parallel to the Great Himalaya Chain which forms the border with the territories of Bhutan, Sikkim and Nepal. Throughout, the road traverses a high and dry plateau-land which to that  is punctuated by the unforgettable monastery towns of Gyantse, Shigatse and Shegar.  There are also several smaller settlements and nomadic Drogpa encampments. On the detour from the main route towards the Rongbuk Monastery, the road climbs through many hairpin bends to reach the Pang La, which affords splendid views of the  Himalaya, and of Mount Everest itself.  The  4-day round trip to Everest Base Camp takes us off-road, to the Rongbuk Valley, which is situated beneath the stunning north face of Mount Everest. Retracing our tire tracks back to edge of the Tibetan Plateau at the Thang La (17000ft), we begin the world's longest downhill, an unbelievable 15000 feet to the valley floor.
