My visa in China was running out. In 2009, a 6 month tourist visa was no problem, with not much paper work i got that in Switzerland. It was time to leave China, i had a 6 month tourist visa from India भारत in my pocket. Delhi दिल्ली was the first stop, but just to book the bus up to Manali मनाली. Manali is a nice place in the foothills of the Himalaya 2000 meter above sea level. I assembled my bike and did some small tours. Yuko from Japan i meet again, i seen her before in Chengdu, and we said, maybe we see us again in India, as she was doing a 2 year around the world tour. We went together with a jeep to Kaza काजा as we wanted to see H.H. Dalai Lama. Kaza 3600 meter above sea level is really a nice place to be, i will come back here for doing some bike riding for sure (see later posts then). After we went back to Manali with the public bus, it took ages, as the Rothang Pass रोहतांग दर्रा རོ་ཐང་། (3978 meter above sea level) was in very bad condition as mostly, and there was really a long traffic jam again, the same as we had also when we went to Kaza. Arrived once again in Manali I took the bus back to Delhi which takes about 16 hours (548 km).
