Nepal-Tibet: from Kathmandu to Lhasa

This trip crosses the worlds highest mountain range. Through the green valleys of the Himalayas and the tibetan highlands reaching the foot of Mt. Everest .
Reach the sky by your own means cycling at 5.300 mts . Discover the vastness of an endless landscape and its local culture that calls for some soul searching through inner paths.

Known as the “Friendship Road“, it’s the only one that connects the capital of Nepal with Lhasa. Most of it is unpaved and some sections are almost abandoned with cyclists being the “majority”.
The distance to cover is 1.100 km . We begin in Katmandú (1300 mts.a .s. l.) from there we descend to Dholaghat ( 540m.a.s.l.) and gradually we ascend through verdant valleys, with waterfalls and small villages along the way.
Once we have reached the tibetan high plateau we detour to Rongbuk (4920 m.a.s.l.). There we trek to the Everest base camp.

We stop at Gyantse, Shigatse and at the main Tibetan cultural attractions. Including small villages where the ancient culture of these mountain people has remained almost intact.
Before arriving to Lhasa city we camp by the sacred Yamdrok lake (4600 mts. a.s.l.) This great lake has the shape of a scorpion.
In Lhasa we might be surprised and moved by the tibetan pilgrims arriving after a long journey to Jhokang. These fervant pilgrims cross their mountain country by foot and we will be there to experience all first hand.
