Tibet is one of the most spectacular regions in the world and a visit to the Base Camp of Mount Everest is at the top of the bucket list for many. And what could be more breathtaking in the sense of the word than riding a BMW motorcycle to an altitude of 5,200 meters? Our Everest Base Camp Motorcycle Tour focuses on exactly that: Tibet by motorcycle with all the highlights that the Roof of the World has to offer, and of course a ride to the Base Camp of Mount Everest is not missing. On this trip, Chengdu is the starting point and the next day the plane leaves for Lhasa. After a some acclimatization we ride to Gyangze and visit the Palcho Monastery and along the Yamdrok Lake, a spectacular azure blue mountain lake, to Sakya Monastery and further up to the Everest Base Camp, where we spend the night at 4,900 meters in the guest house of Rongbuk Monastery. We return to Lhasa via Xigatze and Lake Namtso, a wonderful mountain lake with a 5,100 meter high pass.
On our new Shangri-la To Lhasa East Tibet Motorcycle Tour, the focus is on the Eastern Himalayas. From Shangri-la we ride up high along the rivers Yangtze, Mekong and Salween – on dreamlike routes without traffic. We start our motorbike tour at the southeastern foothills of the Himalayan Mountain range and ride up to the high plateau of the Roof of the World via Zuogong, Lake Ranwu, Lulang (Switzerland of the Orient), and over hundreds of curves parallel to the Nepalese-Chinese border to Everest Base Camp.
Our Kailash Motorcycle Tour takes you on selected routes in the west of Tibet to the holy Mt. Kailash. Visits to the equally sacred Manasarovar Lake, Saga, Nyima, Lake Serling and the forgotten Kingdom of Guge near Zanda are of course also included. Back to Lhasa we take a dreamlike route along the highest mountains in the world Shisha Pangma, Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu.
Of course, Tibet is also a popular destination for Overland travelers with their own vehicle. Many drive to China via Kashgar on the Silk Road and then across the Tibetan high plateau to Nepal – we are happy to help with that too. Another point to note is that China does not recognize an International Driving Permit or License. Hence you have to get a Chinese driving license. But if you go on a tour with us, we will handle that for you.
