Tour de Himalayas !

23 May, 2018

Reon is one of Wicked Family’s local heroes. This is his short story about an adventure on two wheels in the Himalayas!!  Hope it will inspire 🙂

After a film shoot in India, we embarked on a WICKED adventure riding up the Himalayas on vintage motorcycles ! It was a feeling of vast freedom not knowing where you are going to sleep or what you are going to eat. It was totally liberating. We were equipped with the basics, our backpacks, some filming equipment and fueled with the sense of adventure ! We completed a roundtrip to Minalli over twelve days on treacherous roads with mesmerizing views. Mostly it was meeting the interesting people in the 16 cities and villages we passed through that was the best experience. After reaching The Rohtang Pass at 13,050 ft, possibly the highest a carbureted motorcycle can go, we then celebrated with a snow ball flight in true Wicked fashion!
