Ride with us on an amazing motorcycle journey across the roof of the world. Tibet and Nepal offers adventure motorbike riders a fantastic experience – both cultural and scenic. For most, Mount Everest is the scenic highlight, and the Potala Palace in Lhasa is probably the cultural highpoint and focus. And in between, you get to ride through the real Tibet at a time that may well turn out to be a crossroads in the country’s modern history.
Travelling in Tibet is full of the unexpected, which is certainly part of its appeal. Our Tibet tour is best termed a ‘motorcycle adventure’, and should be undertaken by fit, experienced riders with an open mind for changing road conditions and different rules of the road. This tour is not suitable for novices, we expect you to have a minimum 5000 miles riding experience, and some off-road riding experience is required (not a lot!) as roads are sometimes little more than tracks. Itineraries are subject to improvement or change depending on local conditions.
Age restrictions 18-65, but please check with us if you are over 65, we can be flexible.
Temperatures on tour are subject to rapid changes, and the climate will vary from the lower to the high elevations. While riding we must be prepared for these changes. Expect very hot and humid conditions on the plains, with possible showers. As we climb into the foothills expect warm daytime temperatures and cooler nights. Approaching the high passes we can expect anything from warm sunny days to rain, sleet or snow, with nights cool to cold but rarely reaching freezing point. Our tour dates are designed for optimum weather conditions. However, mountains are mountains, so we do recommend you bring a sleeping bag just in case!
