Tibet : Everest Base Camp
Everest Base Camp
Cycling in the Tibetan Plateaus, one of the highest regions of the world, is an awe-inspiring challenge and a must for adventure cyclists. On the redspokes Tibet cycle tour you will visit Kathmandu and Lhasa: two of Asia's most exotic cities. Once acclimatised you will cycle over 3 major passes above 5,000m traversing the backbone of the Himalayas.
Tibet is one of the most interesting, remote and spectacular parts of the world. We have plenty of time for sightseeing and acclimatising before our cycling challenge across a beautiful landscape of snow-capped summits. All around us are scenes of religious devotion; prayer flags fluttering on the tallest mountain passes and processions of devout pilgrims travelling to the numerous monasteries and temples.
Riding to Everest Base Camp is a spectacular feature of our tour, and a major cycling challenge, we climb almost fifty hairpin bends over the Pang La Pass. Here at 5,205m we enjoy magnificent views of the Himalayas and of Mt. Everest itself. Finally reaching Base Camp is an experience few will ever forget.
The redspokes Tibet cycling holiday offers great physical challenges with extreme mountain biking through breath taking scenery as you cycle the "Roof of the World".
