Our adventure starts in the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu, from where we will catch a flight to Lhasa, the capital of the Tibet Autonomous Region. From there we will embark on a journey 1100 kilometres long across the Tibetan plateau and parts of Nepal. Throughout the tour we will be accompanied by a minibus as well as a truck which will store and transport all of our excess equipment.
This journey will take us across the Gyamtsho-La pass (5220m) and the city of Shigatse, offering spectacular views of the north face of Mt. Everest, through which we will descend along the Lalung La pass (5170m) and reach green Nepal. Distances covered daily will vary between 70 and 100 kilometres. In every place we spend the night we will also take the time to explore our surroundings and appreciate the cultural and religious landmarks of Tibet.
This is a tour for the true lover of nature and MTB explorer. For an optimal and more pleasant experience, it is highly recommended to adequately prepare for the demands of this tour by training regularly in the months leading to its beginning. With that said, this tour should not serve as a testing ground for your physical capabilities, but rather as a gateway to a completely new and unique experience which will hopefully better your soul and spirit for the remainder of your life.
