28 Days Mountain Biking : Lhasa to Kathmandu
Tour Type: Fixed Departure Tour
Total no. of days: 28
Cost: US$ 2275 per person ~ Single Supplement: US$ 150

There are six major Passes to be negotiated on the main Lhasa to Kathmandu route as it runs Westwards, parallel to the Great Himalaya Chain which forms the border with the territories of Bhutan, Sikkim and Nepal to the South. Throughout, the road traverses a high and dry plateau-land, which is punctuated, by the spectacular monastery towns of Gyantse, Shigatse and Shegar, and also by several smaller settlements and nomadic Drogpa encampments.

On the detour away from the main route towards the Rongbuk Monastery, the road climbs through almost fifty hairpin bends to reach the Pang La, which affords splendid views of the arrayed Himalaya, and of Mt. Everest itself.

Everest Base Camp is a 'not to be missed' inclusion to our tours. Standing before the exposed shear North Face of Chomolungma [Mt. Everest] at 5500m [18044ft] from Everest Base Camp is a memorable experience few ever forget. We will spend a night at Everest Base Camp before retracing our steps to the main Kathmandu route.

Back on the main road, we reach the edge of the Tibetan Plateau as we cross the 5200 metre high Thang La, and begin a mind-blowing descent of 4600 metres, [15000 ft.] via the border town of Zhangmu, to the valley of the Sun Kosi River in Nepal. A final, easy day's cycling brings us back to civilization in the form of Kathmandu. All along the way we have the support of our Sherpa staff, our 4WD landcruisers and our support truck. This tour guarantees to be a high point [in more ways than one] in any mountain biker's life.
