Most of the visitors explore Tibet in a car. However, for some of the most adventurous, it is not an option. If you want to test your stamina on the mountain roads of Tibet, check our cycling tours. Cycling through Tibetan plateau is not an easy endeavor. You need to be in good shape because riding a bike in Tibet as well as any other physical activity is more difficult due to high altitude. However, it is a great way to experience the beauty of Tibet first hand and enjoy the best view along the way.
