Tibet / Nepal

Please note the road between Nepal / Tibet is still closed since the Earthquake.  Please contact the office for an update.

The epic Lhasa to Kathmandu cycling journey has historically been sold as an mtb trip but, as time passes, progress very often occurs in tandem with a fresh new ribbon of tarmac road. In the case of Lhasa to Kathmandu the mountain biker’s loss is very much the road & cross bike riders gain.

The ‘Pave Tibet’ programme means we are now able to open up this this adventure for the first time to road bikes, with touring tyres, and to cyclo cross bikes – all the way from Lhasa to Kathmandu. Miles of tiresome grinding along the tarmac with chunky knoblies are finally replaced with a road biking and cultural extravaganza with truly epic climbs, descents, wild views and experiences.

Tackling this trip in the pre or post monsoon weather windows of early April and August / September will put miles in your legs in preparation for the sportive or cyclo cross seasons ahead, not to mention additional Red Blood Cells too.

Three excellent reasons to book Lhasa – Kathmandu with Rather Be Cycling in 2018

In 2018 our cost is £TBC for groups of 9+ (Smaller groups by arrangement only)

ALL of our Tibet & Nepali biking trips include the services of both a UK qualified and experienced Rather Be Cycling guide and a experienced local Nepali mtb guide regardless of the group size.  This adds value, professionalism and expertise to your trip.  Check the small print to see if a qualified guide is included with other operators trips – they often aren’t or are only added in on large group sizes.

– Our adventurous cycling holidays are organised by cyclists for cyclists – we even clean & lube your chain each day.
