If you have love for cycling, we give you the opportunity to put your passion to the test at one of the most challenging, yet very rewarding places on earth. Cycling on the mighty Karakorum Highway (KKH) is the passionate cyclist’s ultimate challenge.

During the tour, we will traverse you through a range of astonishing and scenic valleys, including Gilgit, Hunza, Gulmit, Passu, Khyber, Moorkhon and Sost to reach the Khunjerab Top at an elevation of 4693 meters where your bicycle ride will kick off.
