The Highest road.

This is another one of my Indian adventure photos which is very special to me as this was the main reason our motorcycle trip through India. It is a hand held stitched pano  taken from the top of the highest point of highest motorable road in the world which runs from ley in India to the top of the Himalayers and down into Pakistan. The view from here is amazing and you actually are looking across the top of the mountains. It is dammed hard to breath at this altitude which is over 18000 feet above sea level. I have this image framed at 50 inches and hanging on my dining room wall and when I look at it, it is just like I’m standing there looking out again.  Probably not for everyone but it sure brings back memories for me.

    Breathtaking (literally!) – it almost looks painted. It must evoke great memories of what sounds like a fantastic trip. Have you seen a DVD called “Riding Solo to the Top of the World”? If not, drop me an email and I’ll send it to you (and any number of other epic motor bike DVDs as well!).

    It was an experience not to be passed up as it’s certainly not something you would do everyday.

    Nice one Pete, great colour and contrast. Looks both barren and cold!
