Definitely, not for the faint-hearted. Averaging an altitude of above 4000m, the lofty Tibet offers a fancy playground for global adventurers.

Everest and exotic Buddhist culture are definitely something not to be missed for a thrilling ride. In fact, Tibet abounds with adrenaline-rushed cycling routes, thanks to the improved road condition and extended highways across Tibet in recent years. For passionate cyclists, you have many options.
