In Lingshed, Wolfgang and Thomas had flat tyres, so they had to fix that, to get the bikes ready for next day. They where not alone, the monks had a helping hand, or at least they watched closely what is going on. The next few days were amazing, but hard, we had to climb up always some passes, but it was really fun always ride down the other side. We were 16 days completely out in the nature, with no electricity, running water (beside the cold icy water from the streams) and other things we would have in normal life. Just like nomads, depending on each of one in the group. Unfortunately Otmar left us in Padum, as he had altitude sickness, which you can’t do much about it. But we 7 people finished happily in Lamayuru. That had to be celebrated in Leh, the capital of Ladakh. It was one of the best trip I ever did so far!! Tomorrow I will post then some facts about our journey with the mountain bikes trough the Himalaya here in India, which nowadays you can do with the Jeep or motorbike as there is a road now.
