We leave Manali early in the day to avoid the sun. We will start our cycling trip along the left bank of the Beas river thus avoiding the traffic on the main highway. The road is a bit bumpy though. After about 10km we will join the main Manali Leh highway at Palchan. From here we will steadily climb towards Gulaba and then a series of spectacular hair pin bends take us to Marhi. The whole trip should take about 6 hours of easy cycling. We will spend the night in tents at Marhi.
Today will we continue the acclimatisation process by visiting a few monasteries not faraway from Leh. Expect to see a lush green valleys amid the stark desert landscape of Ladakh. This is just a glimpse of more beautiful things to come.
We believe that most people in reasonable health should have no issues attending this event. We travel to most places in vehicles and the walking to get to the final shoot location does not require any strenuous hiking.
