Self-Drive Through Tibet

Self-Drive Through Tibet

Trans Himalaya invites you to drive your own vehicle (4x4 or motorbike) across the Tibetan plateau. All documents are arranged and full support is provided by our own Tibetan crew. Members of rotary clubs, biking clubs and adventure driving clubs are welcome to participate. Entry and exit can be arranged through Dram (Zhangmu) on the Tibet-Nepal border, Mengla on the Yunnan-Laotian border, and through other points of embarkation in Central Asia (Pakistan. Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan). Alternatively, you can ship your vehicle to Tianjin or Shenzhen, and drive through China and Tibet! For details and customised arrangements, please contact us directly.
