Tibet closed to foreigners

Chinese authorities are no longer issuing entry permits to Tibet to foreigners. This effectively closes Tibet for 2012. As alternatives, if you are interested in Tibetan culture we highly recommend our Bicycling Sikkim Tea Trails, Mystical Bhutan and India’s Nubra Valley tours. These four tours are all on tarmac and provide stunning Himalayan views.

We also have three tours in Nepal that visit Buddhist sites.  Our Wonders of Southern Nepal tour is on tarmac and though it doesn’t have as many ascents and descents as in Tibet, it does visit the birthplace of Buddha. Our tow other tours are off road mountain biking tours. Our Mountain bike Kathmandu to Pokhara is quite remote and involves camping while biking. Our Seven Summits of Kathmandu Valley has many tough off road climbs and descents, but each night is spent in a hotel.

We will be sure to announce when Tibet reopens!
