It is quite a challenge to cycle across the “roof of the world”! Our trips are specially designed to allow you to explore Tibet in depth, fully absorbing the scenery and culture while undertaking the challenge of biking at a high altitude on demanding road conditions. You will stay in hotels and tents, always supported by your travel consultant, local guides and experienced drivers. Understandably, a biking tour of Tibet is not for everyone. The demanding but rewarding trip requires much preparation to make sure that you are in good enough physical condition for the challenge. The recommended season for biking in Tibet is from May to June and September to early October to avoid winter’s cold and the late summer rainy season. If you are ready for this exciting adventure in Tibet, please contact us for more details about the Tibet Biking Tour costs and our suggested itinerary.
In Tibet, the best times for cycling are May, middle of June and September, when the weather is warm and dry. As usual, the optimum time to come to Tibet is from May to October while it doesn't mean the same for cycling. Cycling needs better weather conditions. Please note that wet season (from June to the middle of August) is not suitable for cycling.
The cost depends on lots of factors, such as the date and length of your trip, the itineraries and the standard of accommodation, so it is hard to say how much the cost is for cycling in Tibet if you do not share the information listed above with us. However, cycling in Tibet is much more expensive than routine sightseeing trips. You need to hire a guide, lease a licensed vehicle with a driver, rent a mountain bike and prepare some bicycle gear.
Yes. In Lhasa, there are many bicycle shops offering bicycle rental services. You could ask your guide to take you to these shops and assist you in renting a bike. In general, the cost of bicycle rental in Lhasa is about 60-80 RMB per day. However, in addition to the rental fee, you also need to pay a refundable deposit of about 800 RMB per bike.
I cannot praise the Asia Odyssey Travel operation highly enough, from the applying of permit to the expertise of our guide. Everything was well arranged. Our guide, Puktso, was both personable and knowledgable, and yet was able to keep things moving. I will definitely go back to Tibet again!

I wanted to visit Tibet for a very long time. Since I live in abroad, this wish was like The Everest Mountain, unreachable. After we contacted Ms. Kate, (高小乐), everything became so easy. Kate was very knowlegeable about Tibet, and very patient with our questions. We have been with her for about a year to prepare for the trip. She has provided excellent services. Due to the considerable preparation, the trip went better that I expected. This was the most memorable trip I ever had thusfar. Thanks Kate!
Wir konnten wunderbare Tage auf dem Dach der Welt verbringen - und wenn es heute erneut die Möglichkeit geben würde - Ja ich würde diese Reise noch einmal unternehmen. Dennoch sind es große Anstrengungen und die Touren im Auto sind lang. 2 Tage dauert die Autotour zum BaseCamp - Achtung - bei der Anreise überquert man bereits die ersten 3 Pässe mit über 5000m - daher sollte eine gesundheitliche Abwägung oberste Priorität haben. Tolle Organisation mit AMY - ich kann es nur jeden empfehlen, da Sie wirklich Sehr gut und schnell auf alle Anfragen, Anregungen und Änderungen eingeht. Ein Tip nach Möglichkeit mit der Tourguidin Kelsan Droma reisen - Auch Sie versteht es wunderbar Ihr Land näher zu bringen und lebt so positiv.
I highly recommend a tour with Asia Odyssey Travel If you want to see the best part of Tibet, you should definitely book a tour with Asia Odyssey Travel. They are very helpful with the permit application and gave me the best impression of the wonderful roof of the world. I am looking forward to seeing our lovely guide and driver again in Tibet. Wish everything goes well with Nancy and her colleagues at Odyssey.
