Trip Overview

Everest base camp motorbike tour from Kerung is a lovely tour for anyone looking for a taste of the exotic orient. This package includes breathtaking views of Mount Everest, as well as authentic Tibetan cultural traditions and monasteries. This is a fantastic bike ride across a beautiful green roadway with views of high mountains gleaming in the sunlight. Following that, you will be visiting the delights of Mt Everest's northern side, which has breathtaking scenery.

A motorbike trip to Everest Base Camp is one of the most exciting means to visit Mount Everest's base camp. You will not only reach the Tibet side of Everest Base Camp, but you will also have the opportunity to discover Tibet and its breathtaking scenery. The world's highest point, sometimes known as the Roof of the World is one of the world's most remote locations. Despite the fact that they are both Himalayan countries, the cultural and lifestyle variations between them will astound you.

This bike tour departs from Kathmandu, Nepal and travels to Tibet via the Kerung border. The planning period begins in Kathmandu with the lease of a motorcycle and a discussion of the tour itinerary with the rest of the crew. The Royal Enfield classic or Himalayan Royal Enfield is the preferred Tibet motorcycle tour. This has a cheap rental cost and is comfortable for a single person. This trip allows you to ride a Royal Enfield 500cc across the famous Tibetan plateau’s road along the newly established Nepal-Tibet connecting border Kerung.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to the top of the world. This is a unique opportunity to ride the Himalayan Range while also visiting cities known for their culture and magical allure.

The voyage begins in Kathmandu and ends in Syabrubesi, near Kerung border. On the second day, we will take a short ride to Kerung Bazar, which is located at an altitude of roughly 2900 meters, where we will spend one night to acclimate. The next day, we will ride through the immense Tibetan plateau, passing through Tibetan communities and crossing 5200-meter-high hills to reach Tingri. We will ride from Tingri to Rongbuk, where we will spend the night and visit Everest base camp, before returning to Kathmandu through the same route. You'll pass through five high passes totaling over 4,500 meters on your way to EBC. The path is made up of 80% tarmac and 20% non-technical off-road.

As you go from Kathmandu to Tibet on one of the world's most remote roads, you will be able to see the enormous terrain that connects these two countries while riding alongside the towering Himalayas. The highlights of this journey include visits to various World Heritage sites in Kathmandu, exploration of age-old monasteries in Tibet, riding in the world's highest plateau and a stop at Everest Base Camp to marvel at the sight of Mt. Everest which stands tall at 8848m. The trip will be easier because you will be riding a motorcycle. You will visit various cultural heritage sites in the region during your stay, where you will learn about Tibetan history and tradition.

From April to November is the optimum time to go on an Everest Base Camp Motorcycle Tour. You may appreciate the cool air, deep blue sky, lovely terrain, and magnificent Himalayan Range throughout this season. December, January, and February are also pleasant months for weather;however, bike riding is not recommended because of the cold weather.
