Trip Overview

Mountain biking from Simikot to Kailash is newly open biking trail; Experience amazing highs across the ‘roof of the world’ as you traverse the road  between Simikot (Nepal) and Purung (Tibet); toward from Purang we follow regular biking trail with grabble and pitch (black top) road. 
 
For the devout pilgrim a visit to Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar forms the ultimate realization of their spiritual pursuit. And for the adventure-lovers it offers rugged beauty, remoteness and solitude. The June tour visits Kailash Kora during the annual Buddhist festival of Saga Dawa while most of the other trips are planned to arrive at Mt. Kailash during the full moon period to give all participants a rare experience. A journey rightly called "once-in-a-lifetime".

We are the leading & pioneer Tibet tour operator equipped with experienced man power, contacts and resources to handle all the logistics of such a tour. Our support staffs are strong, hardy Sherpas who have been several times to Mt. Kailash and have a reputation of hospitality that is now an established legend. We welcome you all to experience the bliss & magic of being at Mt. Kailash & Lake Manasarovar with us.

We will meet with our bikes and additional supplies & support vehicles in Shera, a small town at the Tibetan border. From here we will drive to Darchen. After 3 days kora we start our bike tour traversing to the east, along the Semo Tsangpo River towards Lhasa, until Saga. Leaving Saga we head south, crossing the two major Himalayan passes (Lalung La and Yarle Shung La) before commencing a big long downhill into Nepal. On our decent we will meet green forests, a wild Bhote Kosi and plenty of smiles from the friendly Nepalese people.
