Miles and More Documentary
Synopsis Imagine…. three friends are crossing the world’s highest motorable pass – the Khardungla, poised at 5,486 meters on bicycle. Imagine their adventure of traveling on this road, pedaling 600 kilometer on an average altitude of 4000 metres, which is barely open for four months in the entire year. What would be their level of endurance, passion and the will to travel in the Himalayan range? How transformational an experience it would be to cycle in the land of Buddhist monasteries, yak, pashmina and ibex?
