Ride the roof of the world- Tibet


That Peak in the background is Mt Everest as viewed from the Tibetan/Chinese side.


I took a picture of this on my recent trip to Tibet & Everest Base Camp

This is not a motorcycle ride report - with encouragement from Glitch, i thought i share these phots with you as most of us dream of doing a MC tour to Tibet - i only wish i tour tibet by MC this time.

For those who are interested this is the link to their site
http://www.himalayanmotorcycletours.com/index.htm
One of the rider told me their 13 day itenary cost about UK 4000 pounds, which i think is quite reasonable. Their itenaries are very similar to ours except it runs in reverse order

If you want to read the whole trip report click on the following link to Glitch's Austouring.com site:

Hey ACE nice pics, I went to EBC by way of Nepal last year, you can check out my photos here. Saw a few bikes along the way, Kathmadu was crazy with Honda Heros and the like. Was an awesome trip of a lifetime for myself, I assume you too? http://picasaweb.google.com/capcityDC/Nepal_Ev_show#

It doesn't look much different from when I was there in the 80s. Love to get back on two wheels!

Thanks for sharing.
