Tibet Mountain Biking Tours - 23 Days

TIBET-NEPAL CROSS COUNTRY MOUNTAIN BIKING

Tibet- Shangri-La, the land of snows is well known as the roof of the World. Tibet is the land of ancient Buddhist culture having awesome landscapes, artistic monasteries and centuries old caravan trails. Tibet the roof of the world, lies on a plateau at an average elevation of 4,000 m. It is bounded by the Kunlun mountains to the north and the Himalayas to the south. Tibet covers an area of 1.2 million sq. 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 travelers for centuries but also upon spies, missionaries, scholars, geographers, mystics, soldiers and cranks etc, yet, only few ntrepid 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 splendor, unique tradition and breathtaking scenery awaits all travelers to the roof of the world.

BEST SEASON & WEATHER


From April to October is the best season for riding. There isn't much rain in Tibet as it's a plateau behind the Himalayan range but it rains to some extent during July and August and rest of the season is fine with clear sky. There may be snow fall in the high passes if it rains during April and end of October. Temperature ranges from 0-15 degree C depending upon altitude & weather.

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 season in Nepal, and we should be guaranteed clear, dry weather for the last leg 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 anytime along with a sprinkling of snow.

SECURITY

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