An Extraordinary Feat

May 15, 2018

So at the top of Khardungla pass in a small cafe I saw this other solo traveller. Since two of us were the only ones there I asked about his travels across the tables. An ordinary chat between two ordinary people. But it revealed his extraordinary journey: he had cycled from Srinagar to Leh to Khardungla pass top at 18000 feet!!! Completely unsupported and alone!! (Some have trailing vans that offer rest breaks etc while others go aa a convoy) 

The young man is a practicing dentist at Gwalior and is just ‘taking a break’!

 You never know what extraordinary feats the seemingly-ordinary people in our daily life have accomplished! 

Hats off to this spirit!
