A Journey Through The Mountains of Eastern Tibet

Tibet is an almost fabled land that many long to visit but few do. For most people when thinking of Tibet it is of Lhasa, the Potala Palace, and Everest, the Tibet of the classic Lhasa to Kathmandu ride. This is the Tibet of The Autonomous Region which unfortunately suffers travel restrictions and the need for foreign travel permits, permits that are all too frequently not issued or withheld.

The Tibetan region of Kham in Sichuan Province fortunately suffers no such restrictions and is open for anyone holding a Chinese visa. Having explored the area several times by bike during the first decade of this century it has long been David’s desire to run a tour in Kham. This is a truly Tibetan experience with soaring mountains, hight passes, open pastures and narrow valleys. There are monasteries and monks, yaks and barley, and cowboys on motorbikes. The tour also boasts lower sleeping altitudes, comfortable hotels, and the absolutely wonderful cuisine of Sichuan - Kham offers an excellent opportunity for a cycling adventure in a most exotic land.
