Explore Himalaya recently organized the Lhasa-Kathmandu biking tour for the 4 bike riders Mr. Jose Rosario, Mr. Christopher Chilimintris, Ms. Annamaria Chilimintris and Mr. Sandro Taboada, from America.
Group in Tibet
The riders had arrived Kathmandu where they did one day sightseeing tour and 1 day biking tour around Kathmandu before flying to Lhasa to start the Lhasa- Kathmandu biking tour.

After returning home, one of the riders, Ms. Annamaria Chilimintris sent us her wonderful write up of their experience of biking in Tibet and Nepal with Explore Himalaya and photos of the trip.
“My uncle was turning 50 and wanted to celebrate doing something spectacular he has never done before but always wanted to. He is an avid cyclist in NYC and thought it would be a great idea to bike from Lhasa, Tibet to Kathmandu, Nepal. One of the most memorable moments was bike riding out of Kathmandu, around it, and back into the main city. The grand landscapes were breathtaking, and the rice fields were awe inspiring. Also, the ride itself was challenging. The terrain changes frequently when you are outside the city. And when you are inside the city, the traffic presents other obstacles. All challenges were met with open arms and hearts. They make you laugh!! Somehow the chaos of Kathmandu keeps its order. On our last night, we were taken to a dinner and show. There was live music and cultural dances. What a sight to behold!! Nepal is a beautiful country and we look forward to hopefully returning one day.”

Apr 2023 I had an incredible experience trekking to Everest Base Camp with Explore Himalaya. Our guides were absolutely amazing. They provided us with exceptional support and guidance throughout the journey. The porters deserve special recognition too for their hard work and dedication. The entire journey was filled with breathtaking views and unforgettable experiences. From the start until the conclusion , every moment was filled with awe and wonder. I highly recommend Explore Himalaya for anyone seeking an unforgettable trekking experience in the Himalayas. Thank you to all the the staff, for making our journey truly exceptional!
13 Day Manaslu Circuit Trek Nov 2018 We have just returned to Kathmandu after a wonderful trek around the Manaslu circuit, starting in Soti Khola and finishing in Jaget. The trek and transport out and back to Kathmandu were very well organized. Our guide, Bharet Rana was excellent, arranging our tea-house accomodation and meals each day, without hitch. He was always good humoured and provided an interesting commentary on sights along the way.
Our Everest Base Camp trek was a wonderful and memorable one. Everything was very well organised. Thank you Explore Himalaya and the staffs for such an excellent service. We were taken care of from the moment we landed in Ktm till the day we left. The Guides and the Porters team of Explore Himalaya are very friendly and helpful. They took care of every little things during our trek. Some walked faster, some slowly and few could not but No one was left behind. They walk with your pace and motivates you until you get up. Anuj Pandey, MD of Explore Himalaya was available 24 hours a day when anybody was in need, he even flew to Namche to check if everything was going well and if everybody was doing good. The Guides Bibek Pandey, Bhuwan Tamang and Ram Rajbhandari along with their 5 Porters were the main pillars who made our mission accomplished. I'd highly recommend anybody who wants to travel to Nepal to contact Explore Himalaya and get themselves spoilt and entertained with their excellent service.
Helicopter flight to Everest basecamp Mar 2023 Organized for us a life time experience by helicopter to the base camp. Very well organized and all what has been promised was delivered. Would highly recommend this service.
