Most frequent questions and answers
Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport has many flight routes in and out of Nepal. Please see the map for your closest connection. Currently Kathmandu is the only city in Nepal with an international airport. But this works perfectly fine as all of our Nepal tours start and end in Kathmandu.
We have a fleet of Honda CRF250Ls already in Kathmandu that we use for all our tours in Nepal ( we have tried and tested many bikes in Nepal, including the Royal Enfield Himalayan, and have had the best time riding the CRF250Ls because it is lightweight, agile and has a good suspension it is very much at home in the Nepali Himalayas).
In Tibet we have teamed up with a bike rental company in Lhasa who have a fleet of BMW GS300, 650, 750, 800 and 1200 (you’ll find Tibet now has mostly paved roads and considering the great distances traveled on tour and the average altitude being 4500m, a bigger and more reliable bike is best).
All our fixed departures are scheduled with the best dates in mind for where we are travelling to. Spring and Autumn are high season in Nepal. The weather is mostly pleasant all year round with day time temperatures averaging at 25 degrees celsius and dropping to between 14-18 degrees celsius at night during Spring and Autumn. When higher up in the mountains it is similar in the daytime thanks to the sunshine, but at night it is colder and can drop to 5-10 celsius.
We strongly encourage all riders to take out a good insurance policy that not only covers the basic things such as medical, rescue and repatriation but also travel insurance which covers you whilst riding a motorcycle on and off road. As well as trip cancellation insurance to cover you against any unforeseen circumstances which may mean you have to cancel your trip, for an insurable reason such as personal injury.
A good place to start is through one of our partner’s here in the UK who have teamed up with AON, check out Travel Insurance BC motorcycles. You can also have a look at Voyager, Navigator or Holiday Safe as possible insurance providers.
