Mountain biking Lhasa, Tibet - Kathmandu, Nepal

This 21-day tour guarantees to be a high point - in more ways than one - in any mountain biker's life. This rugged, remote and beautiful country lies hidden behind Mt. Everest and many more of the world's highest peaks in the Great Himalayas range.

Only a few brave cyclists have dared to ride along its inhospitable plateau and forge a passage through these mystic lands into Kathmandu. The rewards being the longest downhill in the world as you enter into Nepal. At a breathless average altitude of 12,000ft (3,660-m) this expedition is not for the faint of heart but made for the pioneer in spirit.

Regular departures are generally 21 days and an Everest Base Camp addition is not to be missed. When you stand exposed before the shear North Face of Mt. Everest (Chomolungma - Mother Mountain) from base camp at 5,600m, you'll know why.

June through September is Tibet's best time to travel season due to weather and festivals. Chinese Liberation means pre-planning is a must.
