Item description for Himalaya by Bike: A Route and Planning Guide for Cyclists and Motor Cyclists (Trailblazer) by Laura Stone...

This is an inspirational and practical guide for the adventurous traveller who wants to take two wheels to the ultimate touring destination – the Himalaya. Cyclists and motorcyclists are just discovering the enormous potential of this mountainous region in Asia, from desert to snowline over tarmac or dirt-road, whether for a three-week holiday or a six month epic ride. Kilometre by kilometre guides detail the highest roads in the world, such as the Friendship Highway between Tibet and Nepal, Manali to Leh in India and the Karakoram Highway between Pakistan and China. Hand-drawn maps mark up fuel, food and water en route and city guides will find you a bed and bite to eat whether you're in Lhasa, Kathmandu, Srinagar or Kasghar. Author Laura Stone has spent three years researching the Himalaya on a bike; this new guide is guaranteed to illuminate, entertain and above all, inspire.
