Follow seven American and British motorcyclists as they ride more than 1,350 miles from New Delhi, India into the Tibetan Buddhist region of the Himalayas known as Ladakh. Riding Royal Enfield motorcycles, they pass over the highest motorable roadways in the world. They'll combat chaotic, lawless, traffic as they climb to nearly 18,400 feet - higher than Base Camp on Mt. Everest. They'll follow steep, switchbacked roads carved into cliff faces with thousand foot drops and no guardrails. They'll have to contend with landslides, river crossings, livestock, altitude sickness, and mechanical problems in temperatures ranging from 40 to 100 degrees F. But the reward is worth it: the most stunning views the Himalayas have to offer and fascinating conversations with the locals about their culture, religion, history, and food. Hold on tight and take a deep breath, because we're taking a journey into The Air Above.
Original music composed by Jerame Gray. Featuring his song "Transcendental Medication".
