In the Shadow of Minya Konka

This Eastern Tibet backcountry mountain bike tour is not for the faint of heart. Only an exclusive band of riders will thrive at these extreme elevations. Simply put, for such riders the prize of a one or two hour descent is worth any amount of climbing.

For the backcountry cycling tour profiled below, five out of the seven days of riding do not offer a pedal stroke under 3000m (10,000ft), six days of riding will take you above 4000m (13,000ft), and one day will take you to a maximum elevation of 4550m (14,760ft).
