Spiti to Ladakh Mountain bike tour
Dear Prem, " we're finally back to italy and could read just now your emails first of all we would like to thank you for all the assistance for the trip. we loved very much the beautiful places we had the opportunity to visit. we now have great memories of India and intense feelings of our vacation in that beautiful country. we arrived two day earlier to leh because: in tzo kar we found rain and could not bike all the way from pang to tzo kar lake but had to use jeeps instead so we gained time. also in tzo morini the wheather was still very cold and rainy and could not spend the day exploring the region as scheduled. so that's why we arrived to leh two days in advance which we decided to spend visiting nubra valley.  as far as the organization of the trip , all went fine. we have a great time and thank all of you for all the effort and support. Best regards ".
