Andi Wittmann and Guido Tschugg pull skids and tables high up in the Himalayas in this final episode of their adventure, we’ve already featured the first and second parts. They hike-a-bike up to 4500 metres and barely have the energy left to send the line they’ve walked up but sat looking at the scenery of one of the worlds greatest mountain ranges certainly helps.

We wake up in Sarchu, we seem to be getting used to the high altitude now or maybe the pain in the head just gets familiar. We pack our stuff and ride on to the final destination: Leh, the capital of Kashmir.

After a memorable drive through the highest mountain pass in the world and a stop to take in some photograph shots with the bike, we arrive in Leh at night.

The next morning the sight of the endless mountains around us greets us. It is a truly remarkable sight and we can’t believe our luck that we are the first to really explore this freeride terrain. The area must play a future role in freeride mountain biking!
