Manali is really nice to stay a while, I did some bike riding to get ready for the big tour and also there were some wedding parties to attend. It was always fun to go there and see, how they celebrate it there in India. Once again, I went down to Delhi to pick up some mountain bikers from Europe. Dorjee came also with me, and we meet also Uwe to have a beer or two. Thomas, Wolfgang and Otmar where very keen to do the trip with the mountain bike again, which I did with Rene Wildhaber for Red Bull and Scott Bikes in the year 2008. We where the first, to cross the Himalaya in that region with the mountain bike. We went back to Manali (Manali - Delhi - Manali 1096 km) and assembled the bikes, and did some small tours to get ready for the trip. We went with a mini bus to Darcha दारचा which lies 1360 meters higher then Manali at 3360 meters above sea level. We had first to cross also the Rothang Pass, for me now the 3rd time in this journey in India. It was raining like hell, also in Darcha. But the adventure can begin.
