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.
Highly recommend the tour. We visited Tibet and had Lomsang as our guide. This was one of the most special trips I had taken in my life. Our guide told us the culture of the Tibetan people, we met with breathtaking sceneries. Our guide was adept with great driving skills. We felt safe sitting in the vehicle. Lomsang was one of the best guide we have ever had. he was extremely organized, patient, and attentive to the group. I was so impressed with his capabilities. Overall, excellent service and excellent experience.
This trip has been part of our family’s bragging card at get togethers and parties ever since we stepped foot out of Tibet. But it would have not been without the preparation and help from Xiao Yu, our tour planner from Chengdu. In addition our tour guide Julia was extremely informative and a joy to be around for those 8 days. The hotels were extremely nice and the places along the way were magnificent. Our family felt very welcomed to the area and we enjoyed the endless insight into the beautiful culture and religion (It helped out the person taking world history next year in our family). We would definitely recommend this trip to other family and friends as it is worth every single petty bit of the high elevation fatigue.
Anfangs April 2019 flog ich von Zürich-Chengdu nach Xining Dort blieb ich 2 Nächte ( anklimatisieren) und nahm nachher den Abendzug nach Lhasa. Etwas skeptisch betr. Sauberkeit! Alles war tadellos und die Abteils 1. Klasse (unbedingt) sehr sauber. Nach 20 Std. Fahrt sah es dann anders aus! Mein Tipp gilt für die ganze Tibetreise, viel trinken (pro 1000m Höhe.1 Liter) kein Alkohol, kein Stress, Diamox und Nasenspray. Ich hatte die ganze Zeit überhaupt kein Problem ( der Körper signalisiert es frühzeitig)
In Lhasa begann meine Overlandtour, die Gruppe bestand aus 2 Personen! Super! Die ganze Reise war wunderschön, alles gut organisiert. Ein Dankeschön geht an Asia Odyssey travel, besonders an Claire, meine Betreuerin ( die sehr gut deutsch sprich)t und an den Guide Pingzhuo, ein ganz toller, lieber Kerl!
Ich kann die Tour in jeder Beziehung nur empfehlen!
Thanks for Tibet odyssey. Me and my friend had an unforgettable and amazing 9 days tour in Tibet in June 2019. During those 9days, our tour guide Ms Gao hong were really responsible, helpful and reliable, he arranged all of the schedule and help us to go through every single day smoothly, safely and comfortable, even when we in the highest place where is altitude 5200m, we didn’t feel any afraid and fearful. He explained and shared lots of history, knowledges and culture of Tibet with us, odyssey not only helped us to experience the amazing views but also delivered lots of knowledges to us.
Ms Kay helped us to deal with lots of problems and offered the kindest advice and service. Giving us flexible arrangements and respond our question effectively.
Fully recommend Asia odyssey!!!!
From the airport pickup time to the train station drop of, we enjoyed a five star service. I was welcome in a Tibetan way with Hada and Tibetan greetings, and our guide was careful with my itinerary and flight schedule, very thoughtful.
My first and only group tour trip so far. What shall I say? Everything worked like a clockwork. My group mates where great and we had a lot of fun (and celebrated new year successfully). The travel agency (asia Odyssey travel) was definitely a good choice. The advises and caretaking I got from my agency (thanks amy, you are an angel ) was better then the one of my other group members (we talked about it openly). I'm lucky that I choose this trip, tour and agency. It was a good experience and I can definitely recommend it if you like a good and organized tour through tibet.
