Lhasa to Kathmandu
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Lhasa to Kathmandu cycling holidays...
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.
Nigel Gerke, Swansea, Wales.A challenging tour with excellent staff and a great group of fellow cyclists, through a dramatic and thought provoking country
Michelle Morris, Baildon, England, UK
The redspokes Tibet tour was AMAZING. It was a very well organised trip which allowed plenty of time before the start for acclimatization to the altitude. The scenery was just something else. There was not a cloud in the sky at Everest. It was so hard on many levels, but worth every second it. I can't put into words just how awesome the experience was, but it is one which will stay with me forever.
