Treasures of the Himalayas

Draped along the greatest heights of the Himalaya, Nepal is where the cold of the mountains meets the steamy heat of the Indian plains. Soaring snow-topped mountains shimmer with rainbows of prayer flags, while the intense streets of Kathmandu are a ceaseless frenzy of chattering vendors and garish signs: Nepal is a thoroughly colourful slice of Asia. It's a land of yaks and yetis, stupas and Sherpas and some of the best mountain biking on earth. Nepal's craggy chunk of the Himalayas offers world-class terrain - peppered with rustic mountain villages, and hundreds of undulating trails that have been trodden upon for centuries.Filmed by: Gaurav Man Sherchan (www.gauravman.com) Music: Boyce Avenue - Pocketful of Sunshine (www.boyceavenue.com) Rider: David Enns
