TRANS-HIMALAYAN ADVENTURE 2019
20 April – 16 May 2019
An unforgettable, high-altitude expedition through China, Tibet and Nepal
The road to Shangri-La
The Trans-Himalayan Adventure is our most challenging event to date, taking a select group of intrepid crews on a non-competitive, 26-day expedition across the mightiest mountain range on earth.
Most rallies in this region travel along the southern foothills of the Himalayas, but Rally Round will be crossing the range from north to south, starting from Chengdu, China, and travelling via Tibet and Nepal to finish in the fabulous city of Kathmandhu.
Our route is not for the faint-hearted – crews will drive at high altitude and tackle astonishing roads and mountain tracks as they visit the magical city of Lhasa, the lost Western Tibetan Kingdom of Guge, sacred Mount Kailash and Everest Base Camp. Along the way you will experience unimaginably beautiful landscapes, rare wildlife and amazing cultural sites ranging from ancient ruins to stunning temples and monasteries, not to mention a few extra special surprises!
The 2019 event is now completely full but we are planning to return, so if you would like to join us then please contact the rally office at your earliest convenience. Do please note that although the rally will be supported by expert mechanical and medical personnel it is only suitable for experienced crews in well prepared cars.
