Lhasa to Kathmandu
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Lhasa to Kathmandu cycling holidays...
Christine Jackson, Isle of man, UK
I loved the whole experience. I met loads of fantastic people and felt that the group gelled together really well; particularly considering the youngest was 19 and oldest was 63. People were really laid back and looked after each other in a quiet sort of way. I was higher maintenance (!) than I would have liked to have been due to illness. It was really reassuring to know that David and the support crew were there and were really supportive and extremely helpful. I would love to do the whole trip again!! Am already looking into my next trip. Thanks for a fantastic experience.

Just a short note to redspokes to say a large thank you to everyone for providing the framework and support for a most incredible journey travelling from Lhasa to Kathmandu.Having booked with larger companies in the past [and been some what disappointed] I can say that redspokes have got the blend of adventure and personal endeavour balanced perfectly with the ease of organisation and back-up that your team provided, down to a fine art. A most fantastic trip that I would recommend to anyone who wants to experience something quite different. I hope to join you soon on another journey.
Tatjana Troll, Berlin, Germany
Fantastic trip: amazing, exhilarating and challenging, hard work though;
I'd happily recommend it to my best friend and to my worst enemy...
Steve Barnes, London, England, UK
This trip to Tibet and the chance to cycle The Roof Of The World has to be the ultimate experience for any rider. Steeped in history and mystery, Tibet remains a truly wonderful wilderness, and if the altitude doesn't take your breath away the views certainly will! If you are looking for a challenge and something that little bit different, this is the perfect trip. Everyone should do it.
Russell Snowden, Lennoxtown, ScotlandCompleting this trip ranks as one of the most incredible challenges I have ever done and the sense of achievement is amazing. The tour leader and all of the local staff contributed greatly to making this happen, this along with every member of the tour.
Juanjo Blanco Cerrajaro, Madrid, Spain
Definitely a great experience, I really enjoyed far beyond my expectations. A very well organized tour and very good leader who did everything he could to get the best of the group as a whole and of everyone of us. As for the tour itself, Tibet has a very interesting cultural and religious legacy and astonishing landscapes, it's a nice trip destination.
Mike Glodowski, Milwaukee, USA
Please forward my appreciation to the redspokes team that supported our tour through Tibet. I cannot praise them enough for making this my most memorable adventure!
Kirsty MacPherson, Dundee, Scotland
Doing this trip has been one of my greatest experiences of my life. The scenery and people of both countries will knock your socks off and the sense of achievement is indescribable. It was tough going at times but the support crew and Dermot made sure that the group were well looked after.
Carol York, Washington, USA
Lhasa to Kathmandu is one of the classic overland routes and any cyclist who is looking for a good challenge with spectacular scenery should sign up. This trip is definitely physically challenging, but redspokes' well-planned itinerary with sufficient days in Lhasa to acclimatize and reasonable distances each cycling day, plus a rest day in Shigatse and great support staff enabled everyone to accomplish the trip. Trip leader David Walker and the local crew led by Loka were superb; they even prepared delicious gluten free meals while camping at 5,000 metres.
Jonathan Woodhouse, Ashbourne, England, UK
I've never been on an organised tour before, as I normally prefer to be able to go at my own pace and change routes if I feel like it. For Tibet this isn't a practical option. The redspokes tour offered the chance to see Tibet and clock up some miles in an otherwise inaccessible, and culturally fascinating, area. Liked the attitude of the organisation, in putting cycling first, and would definitely recommend you to anyone wanting to do this route. Excellent support staff and still barely able to credit that the food was so good/plentiful that I came back the same weight I started out.
