Himalayan villages: Old Manali
One of my favourite things about bike trips is that access to small, quaint and often forgotten about villages is a daily occurrence as you aren’t simply whizzing by in the bubble of a bus and can stop at any point to meet the ‘real’ people. Old Manali and surrounding villages offer some interesting insights into the daily lives of tribes of Himachal Pradesh. The other nice thing is that you actually don’t need a bike to get to them, just a good pair of walking legs and an umbrella!
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.
