An amazing mtb trip,after much research decided to use Makalu to guide us across the Himalayas via base camp,the staff,guides and organisation where excellent everything done with a smile,cant praise them enough.
The cycling was more of an endurance event,the altitude making it much tougher than you can imagine,so get some serious training in before taking this trip on,camping at Rongbuk and waking up to see Everest made all the hard climbs and sore butts worth while,
We went in September and most of the time it was warm daytime,and around freezing at nights,we had a couple of sleety showers but only on one or two days,You will need a down sleeping bag we bought fake ones in Kathmandu and they where fine,although they did tend to shed feathers so probably wouldn't last to long.
If your going to do this route use Makalu the price is right the guides are really on the case,the catering was surprisingly good ,the camping and washing in glacier streams just add to the adventure
