Overview

Chengdu to Lhasa Mountain Biking

The east of Tibet includes the regions of Kongpo and Kham. Geographically, politically and historically, these regions are a completely different world. This special biking route offers magnificent views of lush forested valleys, crystal-clear lakes, rivers and vast barren plateaus. The isolated valley, with its scattered tribal villages and remote monasteries, gives you an incredible and unique glimpse of this Eastern part of Tibet. Kham was the home of many holy men including the founders of the Drigungpa and Karmapa School. In 1070 many Buddhist faced persecution in central Tibet and fled to Kham. Here they set up influential monasteries. Later they returned to central Tibet and spearhead the so-called second diffusion of Buddhism in Tibet.
