For the past years we have been thinking a lot about a China & Tibet bikepacking experience. We are drawn to what appeared to be a country evolving in isolation, and at the same time exploding onto the global scene. But for the independent overland traveler China is still a dead-end. To preserve our freedom and to make it more challenging, we decided to do the journey by MTB. Given the size of the land, our focus is on the Sichuan, Yunnan and East Tibetan provinces, which are also the most ethnically diverse.
