Flying in from Kathmandu we have 4 essential nights in Lhasa to acclimatize and see the city. Then we set off on this amazing journey. Biking is excellent on the unsurpassed roads that wind across the high plateau. Gradients are low enough, switching-back to the six great passes on this 600 mile tour. Gyantse is our first destination, via pass views over the scintillating Yamdrok Lake. Then Shigatse and the famous Tashilunpo Gompa. After the big 5,220 meter Lhakpa La, we leave the ‘friendship highway’ at Shegar for the track to Rongbuk at the foot of Everest. This is an incredible approach over the Pang La under the massive north face. We have an option of a day trek on the lower slopes of Everest itself! Returning to the highway we climb gradually to the Thang La. After our last fantastic view out over the great Tibetan plateau we have just traversed, its now freewheel all the way, a 4,600 meter descent, via the border to the Sun Kosi valley and the lush Kathmandu valley beyond. One of the best bike trips in the world.

What makes this trip different?

Eco Trip Nepal has been working hand to hand with nonprofit social organization SWAN Nepal (Social Welfare Association of Nepal) from its initial years. We provide continuous support to SWAN financially as well as by organizing charity and volunteering tours in the remote village of Baglung district. Organizing your holiday through Eco Trip Nepal will not only provide the chance to explore the natural grandeur of Himalayan country Nepal but also you will be playing a vital role in bringing positive changes in the lives of local community.

Financial support to direct beneficiaries:  In all our programs, we strive to ensure that we only use local operators and try to source all provisions from local businesses, so you can be sure that some part of the money paid to us for arranging your holiday goes to the needy people of Nepal. The money you pay for touring and trekking through Eco Trip Nepal directly benefits the local people through SWAN as we provide them certain percentage of our profits from each and every trip on regular basis. Our guests experience true satisfaction together with enjoyment from Nepal holiday.

Local development through tourism: Eco Trip Nepal along with SWAN has been working together in discovering new routes, making plans into action and constantly working on how it can positively impact on local community development through tourism. In this way we have developed the Eco-tourism Project which focuses to flourish local tourism preservation of nature and cultural heritages.

Community Tourism: We help experience the best of Nepal through the eyes of the local Nepalese community. We enhance community based tourism to help our guests discover local habitats and wildlife; celebrate and respect traditional cultures, rituals and wisdom. In this way community will be aware of the commercial and social value placed on their natural and cultural heritage through tourism, and this will promote community based management of these resources.
