Lhasa-based Tibet travel agency Tibet Ctrip Travel Service is providing bicyclists with a new test of strength and endurance: a biking tour from Lhasa to Kathmandu! This journey is now possible through a combined effort of experienced, guides, drivers, and travel support staff. Most bikers choose to arrive in Tibet via air. Daily flights serve Lhasa from a variety of Chinese cities and non-stop flights from Kathmandu arrive almost daily! Before setting off on this adventure, Tibet Ctrip arranges for sightseeing in Lhasa while bikers acclimatize to the altitude. We will arrange comfortable tourist hotels for the trip. And provide camping equipment like tents and sleeping bags on portions of tour where it is necessary to camp. Those who bike Tibet are in for magnificent landscapes, opportunities of learning about Tibetan Culture, and an overwhelming sense of satisfaction when they finally arrive in Kathmandu!
Stage 1 of bike ride from Lhasa to Kathmandu:
The biking tour begins in Lhasa. Travelers will visit place like Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, along with Sera and Drepung Monasteries while they acclimatize to the altitude. Bikers are encouraged to keep physical activity light and drink lots of water in preparation for the strenuous adventure ahead.
Stage 2 of bike ride from Lhasa to Kathmandu:
After acclimatizing, the Tibet biking tour begins! Within the first couple days, the tour passes Lake Yamdrok and makes stops in Gyantse and Shigatse for sightseeing.
Stage 3 of bike ride from Lhasa to Kathmandu:
After several days on the road, bikers will reach Rongbuk Monastery. It is located near the base of Mt Everest. Rongbuk Monastery is the highest monasteries in the world! Bikers will spend the night here and wake up early for early morning views of Mt. Everest (weather permitting).
Stage 4 of bike ride from Lhasa to Kathmandu:
After Everest, it’s another 2 days to Tibet’s border with Nepal. The group’s Nepali guide will join in at the overland border and accompany bikers to Kathmandu.
This truly epic Tibet tour takes dedicated bikers through high altitude Tibetan towns and villages, giving them a window into every day Tibetan life that most tourists miss out on. Bikers have more time to appreciate the sights than those riding in a vehicle and cover much more ground than those on a trekking tour! With Tibet Ctrip, the itinerary is flexible enough to allow bikers to move at their own pace; a support vehicle follows in case anyone needs a break from peddling! From Tibet Ctrip’s experience April to May along with September to October are the best times to embark on this journey (these are also the best times for catching a glimpse of Mt Everest). With availability filling up quickly, bikers are encouraged to begin planning their adventure soon!
