On the way out of Leh
135 ‘Petrol station… of sorts’ – Ladakh
Amazing Ladakhi Valley climbing back into the high mountains
Sorting the wheat from the chaff… so that’s what that is!
Very typical Ladakhi house
So this is where Alice’s back went for the second time on the trip… going nowhere!
Our first ride. This one took us over the Taglang la pass, then dropped us in the back of beyond.
The back of beyond
Waiting at the roadside to hitch a lift.
Plan B. Hitching.
Pete chose to get out ad ride the las 50kms to Manali. You can see why!
We set out from Leh in good form looking forward to one of the most infamous high altitude roads in the world. Unfortunately two days into the ride Alice’s back seized up at 4600m and we were forced to find another way…
One of our more testing sections.
