    Adam Riemann films his descent down one of the world's most dangerous trails in the Himalayas. Reimann, who travelled 4,500km across India and Nepal whilst making a film with his father, documented the ride using a headcam. He was forced to naviagte sheer drops, tight turns, loose rocks and waterfalls.

    We ride around many parts of SE Asia knowing how fortunate we are but this simply compels the viewer to realise, even dream of, how many more absolutely fabulous adventures are out there waiting.

    What a ride! The deceptive shadows, the temptation to look down the drop-off, the continual change in road surfaces, 'surfing' across the road, the bridge (!), the sheer size of the drop-off as indicated by the time taken for rocks from a land-slide to travel from road to river...................magical stuff.

    Made my day!
