2016 ending…a little bit of relaxation…
End of August a team of brave cyclists attended the Manali-Leh Expedition:
Inspec Group members: Renata and Petr Pisan (First EIE SA, Geneva, programmer), Ramesh Amritraj (ETS, Bangalore, India, First EIE exclusive distributor), Jean-paul BIRRAUX (First EIE SA Sales and Marketing Manager)
This ain’t no touristy stuff! This is that once in a lifetime event that cyclists around the world dream of. The expedition starts at Manali : door to the heaven of Himalayas which has ironically become honeymoon spot! The expedition makes you cross 5 passes with a maximum altitude of Khardung La (5370 mts). Each one of these passes is unique in their own stature: Bara Lachha La – one of the most loopy passes, Naki La & Lachu lung La are like Twin brothers standing just next to each other, Rohtang Pass is the most unpredictable and moody of them all, and last but not the least & the toghest to cross – Tanglang La (5340 mts). Overwhelming..right? Well there is much much more. Gata loops with 22 curves can send a fine chill up your spine when you see it from the top, Moray plains is one of the highest & coldest deserts in the world, snow laden peaks, rivers like Chandra-Bhaga & Indus, and more. The destination city of Leh needs no intro which culminates your expedition in a perfect way. Well, its just not possible to explain the beauty of the expedition in words! One has to do it to feel it.
