Royal Enfield Motorcycle Ride to Tibet

Tibet is one of the most remarkable places to visit with its ancient monasteries, high passes and views of Himalayas unlike any other place on earth. Visiting the "Roof of the World" on a motorcycle on the classic bike Royal Enfield is an ultimate adventure!

We start the journey in Kathmandu, Nepal with tours of ancient cites and riding on the Friendship highway to Nyalum. After an acclimatization day at Nyalum we will be heading to Lhasa, once a forbidden city, passing through the town of Shegar, Shigatse and Gyantse. Enroute we cross through some of the highest motor-able passes in the world (Gyatso La (5,220m) and Karo La (5,050m) passes), pass small Tibetan settlements, with nomadic herdsmen wandering across the wide arid plainsfirst visiting the holy lake of Yamdrok and to arrive at Lhasa. We spend few days exploring this fascinating city visiting the Potala Palace, former home of the Dalai Lamas, catch the monks engaged in lively philosophical debate at the once great monasteries of Drepung and Sera, exploring the fascinating bazaars and alleys thronged with pilgrims who have converged from all over the country to prostrate themselves at the sacred shrines of the Jokhang Temple and walk around the Barkhor, the sacred circumambulation route around the Jokhang temple.

We head back towards Nepal passing through villages and small nomadic settlements to reach Shegar. The next day we visit Everest Base Camp which will be another highlight of the trip. After spectacular view of Everest we head back to Kathmandu.

If you crave for history, adventure, challenge and excitement through the windshield of a motorcycle then look no further as this trip is just what you are looking for.
