Ride to the top of the world on a once-in-a-lifetime motorcycle tour to the base of Mt Everest. An adventure filled with stunning views of the snow-capped, sky-piercing Himalayas, the 14-day journey is a bucket-list ride for motorcycle enthusiasts.
For a limited time, Nomadic Knights is offering a US$500 discount on its two-week “Rode to Everest” ride, beginning in Kathmandu, Nepal, on September 12, 2021. The discount is available if booked by April 30, 2020, using the code EVEREST500.
Leaving the Nepalese capital on September 12, 2021, the guided, 14-day tour climbs north to the high-altitude deserts, snow-crowned peaks, deep gorges and high, prayer flag-draped passes of Tibet.
The 2340km-long, round-trip route will see adrenalin-seekers ride classic Royal Enfield Himalayan’s across endless switchbacks, past glaciers and turquoise lakes, with the sky-piercing, Himalayan mountains providing a stunning backdrop the whole way. Established in 1893 and made in India, the legendary Royal Enfield brand of motorcycles is the oldest motorbike design in history.
In Tibet, riders will visit the legendary city of Lhasa and the imposing edifice of Pothala Palace – the spiritual home of the exiled Dalai Lama. Guests will stay in the high altitude Rongbuk Monastery and visit the nearby, 5200m-high Everest Base Camp in Tibet which provides the closest vehicle access to the world’s highest mountain. Guests will be able to watch the sun set behind the towering peak.
Managing Director of Nomadic Knights, Alex Pirie, said: “This is one of the most amazing and enlightening road trips any motorcyclist can take, with Tibet overloading the senses every hour of the day,” said Alex who personally guides each of Nomadic Knight’s 10 motorbike tours in Nepal, Tibet and India each year. “I can assure you that these moments will stay etched in your memory forever. The next time you’re at this altitude, you’ll likely be on your flight home.”
