Lhasa, Tibet (PRWEB) August 24, 2015
A biking tour of Tibet is a fantastic way for experienced mountain and road bikers to test their strength and endurance while losing themselves in the stunning Himalayan scenery. For bikers visiting Tibet during fall 2015, Tibet Ctrip Travel Service-TCTS (http://www.tibetctrip.com) is offering a fully supported adventure that begins in Lhasa and ends in Kathmandu 21 days later. Those who bike Tibet will not only be rewarded with fantastic landscapes but also opportunities to learn about Tibet’s culture, history, and every day life.
Over the first few days, travelers will have time for acclimatizing to the altitude while enjoying a sightseeing tour of Lhasa. While this portion of the tour is completely customizable, most groups schedule a visit to famous places like Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, and Norbulingka. During this time it’s important to get plenty of rest while staying well hydrated, easing the transition to the altitude pays off in the long run.
The first leg of the journey takes bikers past Lake Yamdrok, through Gyantse, and to Shigatse. Over the next few days the Tibet tour group makes their way to Rongbuk Monastery and Everest base camp; weather permitting travelers will awake to crystal clear views of Everest. After Everest it’s another 4 days to the border and then 2 to Kathmandu.
On the ride, Tibet tour operator TCTS takes care of travelers by providing food and camping equipment for areas where no hotels or guesthouses are available. A support vehicle will follow the group in case travelers need a break. While the trip is challenging, the opportunity to get in touch with Tibet is unparalleled. For many, this truly is a journey of a lifetime. With the 2015 Tibet travel season’s end in sight, now is the time to plan a tour!
