(No availability) 11 Day Tibet and Nepal Guided Motorcycle Tour

Kathmandu - Syabrubesi, Nepal; Gyirong - Thingri - Rongbuk, Tibet, China

Motorcycle Tour Tibet and Nepal

People need to be reasonably fit to combat the exhaustion and long hours of riding in such a tough terrain. Most of the road is paved, with the exception of the ride from Tingri to Rongbuk for about 79 kilometers, where it is presently being graveled.
