    Sounds like a great trip. How did you manage to avoid the traffic?

    Great stuff Baz.

    Geez, you're a better man than me. I do all that, but on motorbike.

    Fantastic place for it. Reckon you can put up a Google Maps image of the routes?

    Cheers.

    100 kms would take me 8 hours min with stops on average, BUT in Tibet or Ladhak 100 kms would be 2-3 days
    Did lhasa-ktm twice, about 900 kms 2 passes over 15,000', 1 over 17,000--28 days
    from the Tibetan Plateau down to the border was like 110 kms and took 5 hours amazing down hill run

    Annapurna circuit around 220 kms (1 14,200 'pass) 12 days

    wish i was in that shape now....LOL

    Some where in India
