Lhasa to Kathmandu
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Lhasa to Kathmandu cycling holidays...
Marie Sadler, Bedfordshire, England, UK
This truly for me was the trip of a lifetime and every day lived up to my expectations and beyond.Its impossible to explain the amazing scenery and the emotion at being at the rooftop of the world! Even on the toughest days there was always something that made you smile. This is an incredible adventure. We had a wonderful group, relaxed and fun to be with.The support and encouragement was always in abundance. David our "leader" ;-) and all the support team Tibetan and Nepalese did an incredible job looking after us, the meals they turned out to say the least were spectacular!!! I couldn't fault a thing! This was my third redspokes tour and you continually get it right... Well done and I look forward to choosing my next adventure with you.
Christian Carthew, Victoria, Australia
What an amazing experience. Our crew was superb and kept us fed like kings the entire trip. It was an adventure that is unforgettable, cycling through Tibet and Nepal allows for a very hands-on tangible experience. The climbs were testing given the effect of altitude; however, the reward was the best views and descents ever. Dropping down from the high Tibetan plateaus and into the valleys of Nepal was spectacular. Thank you to the crew and to my fellow riders for making this just so magic :-)
Robert Burford, Luton, UK
My third redspokes trip, and well done David and the support team, for introducing Nepal and Tibet in a way which was endearing to the Local people and scenery to be in awe of. Off road and road cycling is very exciting a challenge all round.The cycling is Tough but worth every Pedal. Mile after mile of scenery and happy banter with my fellow cyclists and Everest was the prize. David and the guides could do no more for us.Thank you so much to you all for making my experience in Tibet and Nepal a very memorable time.
Jon Sturman, Cumbria, England, UK
A very well organised trip, I would recommend redspokes above other companies who run this route. The reason being the quality of leadership, back-up, the food and an itinerary which allows for better acclimatization. Oh, and we had a superb group!
Moey Chen Lim, London, England, uk
Fantastic trip.....Fabulous and breathtaking views! Painful at times and yet sweetness absorbing the views. Walker a great guide and really attentive Nepali and Tibetian crew and the group makes this trip memorable!!!
Ailsa Rutherford, Surrey, England
The Tibet tour was an experience that will make me smile again and again. We were very lucky on our tour with the weather conditions, but luck wasn't the only thing: the teamwork and flexibility between the tour leader (David) and the Nepalese and Tibetan crew to ensure we all had a fantastic time was unsurpassed.
The food was better than I cook for myself at home and the the camping had a hint of colonial luxury. I cannot recommend redspokes more highly.
Samantha Phillips, Toronto, Canada, UK
This was one of the most spectacular trips I have ever been on! The scenery was varied, awe inspiring, amazing people, very unique culture and environment. The trip was very well organised with a daily routine of: wake up to bowl of hot water, eat yummy cooked breakfast, ride all day with lunch prepared for us : ), eat some more, sleep and do it all again! Just thinking about it brings a huge smile to my face! It was truly a trip of a lifetime! I can very strongly recommend it.
Murray Piesse, Rotorua, New Zealand
To cycle across the "roof of the world" and experience the mysterious and magical world of Tibet is a dream that I can relive with others for the rest of my life. The highlights for me were to visit base camp where we stood in the face of Everest and then to cycle the world's longest downhill into Nepal.Thanks again to Dermot MacWard of redspokes and my fellow cyclist who were a joy to be with.
Sandy Hore-Ruthven, Flax Bourton, UK
The trip was amazing. The scenery fantastic. Like being in another world. The distances are fine and once you are over the altitude sickness it was plain sailing. Almost all the roads are well tarmaced and I would suggest a heavy touring bike is a better choice than a mountain bike. I travelled on 35c tyres with no problems at all and much faster and smoother than the mountain bikes.
Alan Gillespie, Wanaka, New Zealand
In summary the tour exceeded all expectations, the scenery, the history and culture, the changing face of civilisation, the mystique of Tibet, and the physical challenge of cycling through it has been rewarding.
I have had the time of my life!
