Ultimate Biking Tour from Tibet: the Highest; the Longest
The ultimate Biking expedition across the roof of the world - The worlds longest and deepest bike descent, from the Tibetan Plateau into Nepal High level ride, traversing the road between Lhasa and Kathmandu including 4-day round trip, off-road, to Rongbuk Valley beneath the stunning north face of Mount Everest.
What makes the Trans-Himalayan highway so special? Again, it's the highest road in the world, averaging an altitude of 4,500 metres above sea level as it traverses the Tibetan plateau. Secondly, the route boasts the world's longest continuous descent, which of course means that you'll face the world's longest uphill if you are heading in the opposite direction. Best of all to mountain bikers is the sense of isolation and awe-inspiring scenery. They must also face an onslaught of zigzagging mountain passes and endure a constant battle against breathlessness.
Expect to cover 70 to 100 km per day. Be sure you have clothes for all conditions: remember that you are above the clouds and it can be very sunny and bright. It can also snow, rain, hail and become very, very cold at the drop of a hat. In fact, it's all character-building stuff and after one week you'll be more resilient to the harsh conditions.
