Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

South Korea by Bike

Situated on the Han River, Seoul is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea, and the starting point for our tour. In Seoul, bicycle paths are available on both sides of the river and we leave the city on excellent new cycle paths as the Han river leads us into a tranquil rural countryside. Seventy percent of South Korea is covered in natural forest and as the cycle paths follow the rivers the terrain is mostly easy. Restaurants and cafes are located on these paths and you will meet many local cyclists who have embraced Korea's new cycling culture. Each day we will take in different sights, visit cultural icons, stay in a great variety of accommodation and taste a delicious variety of Korean cuisine. On our return to Seoul, which is ringed by mountains, if time allows, we will have the option to hike Mount Inwang, one of Korea's most sacred mountains.
