About this trip

Lhasha to Kathmandu Mountain Bike Tour offers the world's longest and steepest descent – a non-stop downhill that begins on the Tibetan Plateau and winds 150 km down to the fertile rice fields of Nepal (an unbelievable 4600m descent!).

We will ride more than 1,100 km through Tibet on crushed stone roads and over spectacular mountain passes. The high point of the journey comes when we arrive at the monastery of Rongbuk and see Mount Everest Base Camp (5200m). Lhasha to Kathmandu Mountain Bike Tour is the only trip in the world where you can visit Everest Base Camp with a bicycle! It was here on the North Face that Reinhold Messner began his successful solo ascent of Everest in 1980.

We stay overnight during this journey in hotels and in tents. An experienced crew of guides, cooks, and drivers from both Nepal and Tibet provide for a smooth operation. The tours are available between the months of April and October and feature 15 full days of biking with full logistical support.

This mountain bike experience will also bring you into contact with three religions (Buddhism, Lamaism, and Hinduism) and act as an introduction to the mysticism of Tibetan culture, the friendliness of the people and the daily culture in villagers' lives.
