The Little Tibet Bike Tour is a revival of our long Little Tibet Motorcycle Tour from 1995.
It's known as Little Tibet Motorbike Tour because we remain in the Indian Himalayas, yet the landscape is just as spectacular as in Tibet proper – or perhaps even better. In Little Tibet, we can travel without having minders watch our every move, and the Tibetan exiles still live as they did before the annexation of Tibet by China.
The little Tibet motorbike tour will take us through the Sutlej and Spiti valleys to the very roof of the world. It's an otherworldly landscape.
We start in Nagar, riding through Kulu Valley, and over the Rothang Pass into Spiti Valley.
In September 2015, we ran an explorer tour to check the road conditions along the Little Tibet Bike Tour route and prepare for the new 2016 tour.
