The beauty and wonder of Uttarakhand has a peculiar charm- that of a distant home in another land that you visited during childhood. Hills dappled with rhododendrons and deciduous forests, lakes of peculiar shapes bestowing life to quaint tiny towns, where people sit by the fire as dusk approaches and darkness spreads through the sky to talk of life and love and beauty- such is the miracle of Uttarakhand. And every ounce of this miracle is beautifully squeezed in this Overland Himalayan Motor-biking Expedition.
