'I love your book. It's really inspiring and it comes at a time when one needs a book like this to plan future expeditions.' Manjula Narayan, National Books Editor, Hindustan Times
In this thrilling second book, adventure cyclist Dhruv Bogra leads us into the heart of the great wilderness of the Indian Himalaya, with fascinating narrations of expeditions on the saddle of a mountain bike—from the Old Hindustan–Tibet road in Himachal Pradesh’s Kinnaur district to the heights of Lachen in Sikkim.
Dhruv has traversed thousands of kilometres solo on a bicycle through some of the most treacherous and scenic roads in South Asia and the world, climbing to the highest motorable passes, cutting through thin air and frigid temperatures. His absorbing stories reveal the simplicity, grandeur and magical weave of the Himalaya, its ancient mountains and forests, the thriving life of its indigenous people and their rich culture.
Away heralds the pioneering and resilient spirit of adventure cycling in India and tempts us to find our own ‘trail’ in one of the most magnificent ranges in the world.
