Lhasa to Kathmandu Cycle Expedition 2011

World Expeditions & Mushypea ride from Lhasa > Kathmandu

With it’s ancient monasteries and breathtaking natural Himalayan backdrop, the Lhasa to Kathmandu ride has deservedly been on the list of most iconic cycle tours for years.

In September I’m leading a World Expeditions cycling adventure from Lhasa in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) to the colourful city of Kathmandu in Nepal and I can’t wait!

This ride has it all.  We start riding in the spiritual capital of the TAR, Lhasa, where the smells of juniper and incense fill the air while hundreds of pilgrims prostrate around the medieval streets surrounding the Jokhang temple – for many it’s the final stop on a pilgrimage which can take years to complete.

Once we leave Lhasa we’ll cruise, climb, coast & descend the Himalayan range over 25 days taking in some of the most beautiful views in the world from the high altitude lake of Yamdrok Tso, the Kumbum & Dzong of Gyantse, Shigatse’s Tashilunpo monastery (the traditional seat of the Panchen Lamas) before riding through Mt Everest (Qomolangma) National Park and descending 150km downhill through gorges and waterfalls to Nepal.

This ride will be fully supported with meals, accommodation (hotels and camping) support vehicle and local driver/guide.
