Come with us on a journey into Tibet - one of the most majestic and controversial destinations on earth. Very few people have been fortunate enough to visit Tibet and experience the beauty and spirituality of the Tibetan people which resonates throughout the land.
There are countless highlights in this trip including the awe-inspiring Potala Palace in Lhasa, the numerous monasteries dotted on the landscape, the unbelievably well maintained roads that make you feel like you're at the Philip Island GP. But beyond doubt the highlight of the trip is getting up close and personal to Everest Base Camp sitting at 5200m. It's motorcycle heaven...or is it nirvana over there?

It's a big day today as we climb higher to the Tibetan plateau and bucket across the Skekar, skirting turquoise blue lakes we we ride high!
