This programme documents a trip on motorbikes along the length of the Indian Himalaya. Producer/presenter Greg Grainger joins Indian motorcycle expedition leader Mike Ferris in the settlement of Gangotri, the source of the holy river Ganges then up into Ladahk - Little Tibet, and its capital Leh, then across the world’s highest road into Kashmir and the house-boat studded lakes of Srinagar..

Highlights include:

  • The inspirational snow-clad peaks of the Himalaya.
  • Holy men and pilgrims in ceremonial immersions in the Ganges.
  • The highest and roughest road in the world, to the Kadung La.
  • Traveling through frequent landslides and crossing flooded roads.
  • India’s vibrant culture, including the grass ladies, the field workers and the children.
  • Sunset ceremony in the holy pilgrimage town of Rishikesh, where the Beatles came to meet their guru.
  • The hitch-hikers: grass ladies, school girls, guitar-playing holy men.
  • The lush Kullu Valley.
  • Manali: Buddhist temple and ceremony, 5-thousand year old Hindu temple.
  • Tibetan tea tent at the Barralachala Pass, our first 4,800 metre pass.
  • Ladahk: high mountains, arid and eerily beautiful.
  • A community of Tibetan nomads, literally living straight off the backs of their sheep.
  • Historic Tibetan monasteries, including the thousand years old Thikse monastery, one of the finest examples of Tibetan buddhism in Ladakh.
  • Leh: Tibetan traders with weathered faces from another era, line its ancient streets.
  • The Ladahk Festival: procession of cultural troupes, dozens of diverse and different tribes, plus yak herders from Tibet, and a display of ancient archery.
  • The highly sacred Mount Kailas, in Tibet and the annual Wesac ceremony.

Numerous rituals are enacted, all to placate the gods.
