hi Mat,

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
RRs... :-))

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..

regards, subash
