went there in july 2006 (the 'roads' are open only for 4 months in a
year, rest of the time they are closed because they are under 60-70
feet of snow). and like you say, nothing like it anywhere else, except
perhaps tibet on the other side of the border. from what i have seen on
advrider, the terrain (and the culture) is the same.
lots of us indian bikers on advrider. really enjoyed metaljockey's
have lots of photos from my previous 2006 ride but it was a p&s. will
try and get some decent photos this time with the k10d/16-45mm..
