Spitti Valley. Himachel Pradesh. Northern India. Himalayas

I took this photograph recently when I was documenting another adventure in the Himalayas, this time we were taking 18 retired or serving UK military personnel who were wheelchair users or PTSD sufferers. We traveled by jeep and motorbike with and without sidecars. The trip was a test to see the positive effect it might have. The results were incredible. This is also my favourite valley in the world, I have been fortunate to pass through it 3 times, each time at a different time of the year and at a different hour.  A friend of mine was the film maker… if you have a few minutes to watch his short film you will not be dissappointed.

    Lovely. Some great shots there with the film. How was it riding a Royal Enfield through the Himalayas, any problems with it?

      Thank you… the Bullet is a brilliant bike for the terrain, we had nobbly tyres put on the wheels, plus we travel with mechanics which helps… punctures, flooded carbs, bent bits is most of the problems… but that is the beauty of an Enfield… easy to repair.

  10. Not only was I NOT disappointed with your friend’s film, I was awestruck by it–by the nobility of the purpose of the trip, by the stunning vistas, by the cinematography, by the smiling human faces. Your still photo captures in one iconic image the communion with nature you all must have felt on the trip.

    Awesome!
    Such a nice initiative. A car accident has made my body a little less useful than it used to be. I still keep on traveling but could you tell me approximately how long this kind of trip takes.
    Thanks!
