A trip to the himalayas isn’t complete without a trip to Delhi, in fact its pretty difficult to avoid one of India’s delirious chaotic cities in the ‘getting there’. Spending time in Delhi’s belly is almost essential to truely appreciate the himalayan spectacle in every sense. The chaos, hectic humidity and noise pressure of 1.2 billion people only make the mountains seem even more beautiful when you eventually arrive after a 14hr bus trip. The sensory overload will leave you exhausted, overwhelmed, disgusted, delighted and definitly relieved that you don’t have to live there. Everytime I go back I appreciate Delhi that little bit more – its like a giant organism with each little cell performing some vital function.
I live in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal which is great cycling country, within 10 minutes I can be bouncing along some of the finest single tracks in the province.
