Martin Victor sends in these photos and links from this absolutely amazing adventure. These have been making the rounds on the web but they are well worth a mention. Great stuff!

Me and my friends rode some scooters to the highest village on earth. It would be really great if you could feature these on your website. The name of the Village is Kaumic, it’s about 4300 meters (over 14,000 feet) high. We rode in May 2008. All these three are two stroke scooters. The make and model are, 1. Bajaj Chetak, 2. LML Vespa Select, 3. Kinetic Honda DX. The Kinetic is a non-geared scooter. They cost us a 100 dollars each. We mixed cooking oil in the petrol because we couldn’t find 2T (2 stroke) oil high up in the mountains.
I have many more photos here http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?p=16758927
If you could post my twitter id @motorbikeman along with the post then it would help me a great deal to network with like minded people.
My pleasure Martin. It’s a fantastic adventure. Thank you for sharing!
