Xizang Zhi Lu is an exciting 15 day loop starting and finishing in Chengdu City, the capital of the Sichuan Province. We cover roughly 700 km through stunning Chinese and Tibetan scenery, culture and fantastic biking. Starting in the hustle of Chengdu City, we make our way north west into the agricultural and rice growing regions and then climb slowly through river valleys lined with snow covered peaks to the wide open spaces of the Tibetan Plateau. There are a couple of known touristy towns (known at least to Chinese people) early on in the trip, but from then on the towns are local, rural and in some places very remote. We visit a panda breeding sanctuary and Buddhist monasteries, meet with Tibetan nomadic yak herders, and take the challenge of crossing three high mountain passes. Stunning scenery, colorful culture, intriguing history and delicious food combine to create one of the most diverse, interesting and memorable biking destinations on the planet.

Supplemental Tour Information:
We ride between 20-120 km per day; a total distance of 700 km spread over 12 days of biking. We bike on mostly paved roads where at times bikes and small tractors out-number cars. The terrain varies from gentle meandering river valleys to long sustained climbs and lovely long descents. We climb over four high mountain passes, three of which are over 4000 m however in all cases the gradient is fairly gentle. Suitable for bikers with a good level of fitness and perfect for a hybrid or touring style bike.

The Low-down: We start and finish in Chengdu City and loop through Sichuan Province and the Tibetan Plateau. Your group will be made up of 6-12 bikers from around the world, plus remarkable places, unforgettable journeys leaders, local guide/interpreter and local crew.
