My visa, 6 month in China, was running out again, so I had to change country. I went to India and took again my bike with me. Over Hongkong I flew to Delhi दिल्ली. Uwe was still in Delhi, but I went straight up to Manali मनाली with the Bus (548km) for some biking tours near by Manali. First I went to for a biking tour with some local riders to the temple named Bijli Mahadev बिजली महादेव which is located in the Kullu Valley and at an altitude of about 2460 meters above sea level. Bijli Mahadev is one of the ancient temples in India. In this temple of lightning, it is said that the tall staff attracts the divine blessings in the form of lightning. I went also to Solang Valley the „Ski Area“ outside of Manali. There was no snow, but the mountains around were covered with snow. The Rothang La Pass (3978 meter above sea level) was still closed, so I did a bike trip to Gulaba, which is just a little lower located at the Pass.
