Snapshot: Naini Lake at Sunset, Finally Into The Himalayas!

23 May 2013

Escaped the heat of the plains and rode up the foothills of the Himalayas to the beautifully-set Naini Lake. It’s good to be at altitude once again and 2,000 m (6,560 ft) and above is where I feel most at home 😉

I was riding around town, which is busy with summer tourists, and a biker came up to me and introduced himself as Akshay, a member of a superbike club in Delhi and promptly invited me to stay with him in his cozy flat. A fun evening walking through the markets and then having some beer and chicken tikka by the lake.

Deeper into the mountains we go…
