Mountain Bike Tour Nepal To Tibet

BEST SEASON and WEATHER
From April to October is the best season for riding. There is not much rain in Tibet as it is a plateau behind the Himalayan range. But it rains to some extent during July and August and rest of the season is fine with the clear sky. There may be snowfall in the high passes if it rains during April and end of October. Temperature ranges from 0-15 degree Celsius depending upon altitude and weather.

GROUP SIZE
Min 4 pax, plus Nepali guide-medically trained and experienced, drivers, Tibetan guide, and extra Nepalese MTB guide if numbers dictate.

Description

Tibet- Shangri-La, the land of snows is well known as the roof of the World lies on a plateau at an average elevation of 4,000m. Tibet further is the land of ancient Buddhist culture having awesome landscapes, artistic monasteries, and century’s old caravan trails. The holy land is bounded by the Kunlun Mountains to the north and the Himalayas to the south. Tibet covers an area of 1.2 million Esq. km, and has a population of 2.3 million. Tibet is a sacred land of myths and mysteries inhabited by the ever smiling people. It has not only exerted magnetic spell upon travellers for centuries but also upon spies, missionaries, scholars, geographers, mystics, soldiers and cranks etc, yet, only a few intrepid serious and determined travellers have been able to make it. Tibet being extremely remote and isolated by the most formidable Himalayan ranges, a fascinating world of timeless splendour, unique tradition and breathtaking scenery awaits all travellers.

CLIMATE
The bulk of the trip is crossing the arid Tibetan Plateau, which lies in the rain shadow of the Himalayas and does not receive much annual precipitation. Our departures during the season are timed to miss the monsoon in Nepal, and we should be guaranteed clear, dry weather for the last step into Kathmandu. The weather on the Tibetan Plateau during the day will be surprisingly mild and warm, while nights will be clear and crisp. Temperatures will range from 20 degrees Centigrade during the day to well below freezing at night. As on any of our routes, though, storms can occur at any time along with a sprinkling of snow.

SECURITY
Tibetans are generally honest and Hotel staff can be trusted not to walk off with our belongings. Pickpockets are virtually unknown and there seem to be no scams aimed at parting us from our money. The situation has eased and Tibetans no longer risk being punished for talking with foreigners. We have to avoid taking photographs of Chinese soldiers.
