Meeting old and new friends on the Manali Leh Highway
There is always something to look forward to when returning. It may be small changes, like roadside flowers that you had never noticed before. There is also something comforting in that nothing has changed either, in this case, no mountains have been moved! Then there is the anticipation of meeting old friends again and meeting new ones too.
Last year we visited the remote village of Chumikgiarsa at 4000m, https://www.spanafrican-adventures.co.za/himalayan-villages-chumikgiarsa-at-4000m/ this year I was eager to return to see Tenzin and her then 10mth old daughter Padme and local grand dad Dom Dom Namgyal.
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.
