October 23, 2007 – G Adventures is pleased to announce that its Bike Tibet trip has made National Geographic Adventure’s exclusive 25 Best New Trips in the World list for 2008. This is the sixth consecutive year a G Adventures trip has been awarded a spot on the prestigious list.
Bike Tibet was selected for its spectacular scenery, challenging riding (six passes over 5000m!) and encounters with one of the world’s most fascinating cultures on this 22-day. Cycling is a wonderful way to experience the scenery and culture, exploring lesser-known routes, meeting the locals and making frequent stops to enjoy the magnificent surroundings from Chengdu to Kathmandu.
Last year, Brazil Tall Ship Sailing got the nod. Nicaragua - Volcanoes & Islands, Antarctica Classic, Greek Islands Adventure, Egypt and Costa Rica trips have also received recogniton from National Geographic Adventure in its 25 Best Trips list.
Read all about the Top 25 list in the November 2007 issue of National Geographic Adventure magazine, then put on your helmet and get ready to pedal your way across Tibet on an award-winning G Adventures trip to Asia.
