After a fine ride over Jalori Pass and crossing over two of the major rivers of Himachal, the Sutlej and the Beas, the Himalayan Odyssey has reached Manali. Caught up with Vir and the rest of the Helmet Stories crew who are riding a day ahead of me to Leh.
Today is a rest day for the Odyssey so after prepping for tomorrow's ride, I'm off fishing!
Today was a quick ride from Parwanoo to Narkhanda on the Himalayan Odyssey. It threatened to rain but it held off till we reached our destination. Tomorrow we hope to cross Jalori Pass and continue to Manali as our original route through Kinnaur and Spiti simply does not exist in many places due to the recent havoc caused by rain and snowfall. I'll connect with Vir tomorrow in Manali where he is leading a Helmet Stories ride to Leh. Meanwhile I'm luxuriating in the marvellous weather, a sea change from the hot and sweltering ride from Delhi.
