"…that this was pleasingly beautiful, while the other was sublimely grand" -Meriwether Lewis, June 14, 1805
Tikksey, Shey and a zip along the Zaskar near Chilling
Tikksey & Shey (east-southeast of Leh) and a Zip along the Zaskar (west of Leh) on an Impulse bike
A hired Impulse bike with front shockers makes the 30km trip east-southeast of Leh a treat. With time on the bike remaining, I pass Leh on my return for a white knuckle zip along the narrow scree covered route that follows the Zaskar to Chilling.
