Open skies, atmospheric monasteries, Everest views and empty mountain roads – no motorbike journey is as spiritually transporting as this one from northern Thailand all the way to Lhasa, Tibet’s sacred capital. Gear up for challenging routes, fantastic local meals and off-the-beaten track discovery along the way, as you ride though Yunnan province and into the mist-trimmed mountains of the Himalayas.
