We just returned to Leh from a week in the Himalayas/Karakorum range located in the disputed territory between India, Pakistan and China, protected by the most friendly Indian army.
On the way we cycled over the highest motorable road in the world, quite a challenge surprisingly well met. The moniker, “Top of the World” fits here, but there is more – much more – to the story than just the physical challenges. As usual it is the people who live here, their culture and their challenges, that draw us to places like this.
Much more coming soon, given the vagaries of the internet gods. Please subscribe on the home page.
