About

Rode to Everest

It’s been long closed off and unreachable in its Himalayan vastness. Tibet, the Roof Of The World, has always been a mysterious land topping the wish list of motorcyclists worldwide.

Mystical and magical, Tibet is an overload on the senses. This is a region of extremes with one of the most adventurous, scenically stunning and exciting motorcycle adventures in the world. It’s an enlightening experience – spiritually, culturally and emotionally. The Tibetan Buddhist people are the most compassionate and gentle despite their years of inaccessibility, struggle and resilience.

We ride over 2,300 kms, alongside glittering azure coloured lakes, over vast landscapes and snow-capped peaks. There are remote high altitude deserts, densely forested precipitous gorges and virtually unpopulated high altitude moorlands. The ride takes us to the end of its borders whilst taking in the fabled and ancient cities of Lhasa and Kathmandu.

The motorcycles we ride will be the Royal Enfield and they are perfect for the job. They were designed for exactly this. Nothing can truly prepare you for the moment when the absolute majesty of Mount Everest suddenly appears before you. It’s truly breathtaking, even mind-blowing comes to mind.

It will be a moment in time that sticks with you forever as you watch the sun go down over her peak before bedding down for the night at Everest Base Camp.

There is always much demand for this ride and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis so don’t miss this opportunity and book early for this epic and once in a lifetime motorcycle tour in Tibet.
