Ride along the Entire Himalayan and Karakorum Mountains; Pay homage to Mt. Everest, Mt. Kailash and visit the ancient Guge Kingdom. Visit Lhasa, Shangri_la and the sub tropical Xishuangbanna on your own motorcycles

This is one of the greatest Himalayas adventures. In four weeks you will travel almost the entire length of the Himalayas and Karakorum mountain ranges. On this route, there will be enough time for browsing in the bazaar of Kashgar, visiting some of the oldest monasteries in Tibet, and enjoying the magnificent view of West Tibet by crossing from the elevated desserts of the Changtang to the fearful Taklamakan (the Death Sea) with its charming oasis and friendly peoples.

The adventure starts at Kirgizstan border. Our guide will meet you at the border and clear the customs and help you getting your vehicle plates and driver's licenses.  We will follow the western edge of the Taklimakan Desert to Mazza. Then we ride to Ngari-the largest city in the far west Tibet, climb some of  the highest passes and cross some beautiful valleys. In the following days this journey we will cross the great Chang Tang (Northern Plateau) into far-west Tibet through the wildest land on earth. Meeting nomads dwelling in low, black tents, tend flocks of sheep and goats as well as herds of the yak.  Setting up our camp site at the foot of the extraordinary peak of Mount Kailash is the highlight of the journey. Pilgrims of Buddhists, Bon, Hindus and Jains all come to pay their homage to this sacred mountain. Further within the heavily eroded sandstone canyon and valleys of the upper Yarlung River are numerous ruins of ancient cities that once comprised the kingdom of Guge, temples in that area are still intact and contain exquisite murals and decorative motifs with a history of more than ten thousand years. Continue the journey to the holy city Lhasa, where you have spent some days to explore the different lifestyle and existing culture of the roof of the world. Monasteries and shrines are the centre of the religious faith, which plays an important role in their day to day life since from thousand years. We then travel across the great river trenches of Asia and drop to the subtropical region in Yunnan Province. Exit to Laos or Vietnam and continue your journey south bound.
