India might not be the first place that pops into your head when you think of mountain biking. For Niko, though, it's been the only place he thinks about ever since he traveled the country known for its contrasting landscape. A particular fan of the Ladakh region in the north, he's been longing to return to ride amidst the most majestic mountain range in the world, the Himalayas. Up here, firmly on the roof of the world, in a jungle of 20,000-foot (6,000-meter) high mountains, endless high deserts and salt lakes, Niko found incredible mountain biking trails, the world's highest rideable passes — and a true dream destination for mountain bikers.

In this Collection, we present Niko's top routes to you. You'll discover a seemingly endless route through the loneliness of the rambling valleys. You'll discover true solitude, with the only human contact being with the nomadic families in search of a spot to camp for the night — people who marvel at every biker they meet. You'll discover a true adventure. Ready to get started? Then grab yourself a chai tea and delve right in.
