About the Book

Mansarovar, the enchanted, ethereal lake, may figure on many a bucket list. But going there on bicycles ...? It was a wild idea, meticulously planned, that went 'flat' from day one! In this engaging travelogue chronicled by a chatty bicycle, nine cycles are ridden, helter-skelter to this amazing destination, supported ably by a junk-food gobbling, gossiping and giggling bunch of five.

The storyteller cycle revels in the beauty of the land that is Tibet, imbibes the elements of nature right up to the parikrama of Mount Kailash, soaks up the enthralling history of the place, and sponges in the geography to present a sometimes philosophical, but mostly graphical, tickled and peppy account of the trip.

The view and narrative from the surface of the winding, windy, dusty, sunny Tibet roads, climbing inexorably to high mountain passes, and plunging into Shangri-La valleys, will roll you into another world. Here cultures clash, temperatures plummet, comforts shrivel, friendships blossom, and spirits acquire wings.

Come savour the 'high life' to Lord Shiva's abode, on wheels!
