    ... Tim offered me the one with the front disc brake and I wasn’t about to argue.

    In response to our comments on the city’s unique suitcases-on-a-staircase appearance, Vikas informed us that even a relatively minor earthquake would result in almost every structure in the city being reduced to rubble and sliding into the valley below. Given the very recent devastation suffered in neighbouring Nepal as a result of a 7.8 magnitude quake, this snippet of ...

    ... and 100 tunnels
    for 6 hours to the town of Kalka. Funny, we managed to upgrade our ticket to what was nominally 1st class, only to find half way through when we stopped at another town, everyone who boarded, and who had only unreserved tickets, jumped onto our carriage, throwing bags and cases into the toilet right to the ceiling and then cramming on til the carriage could take no more.

It is recommended that you take any photos quick quick and put your camera away as soon as possible, monkeys like to ...

We catch the sunset and get some stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

    There are two routes to the backpacker hangout town of Manali - the direct route north via Kullu, or the circuitous route to the east via Rampur, Recong Peo, Kaza and the Rohtang Pass. For the latter you need an "Inner Line Permit" for part of the route. The Rohtang Pass is still closed at the moment due to a late snowfall and won't open for maybe another two weeks, so I'll have to go to Manali direct - I've booked a bus for tomorrow - but I might decide to do ...
