Where in the world?
These mountains are so big they remind you how insignificant you are. Fortunately once you conquer them in a rickshaw you can redress that balance.
The Himalayas are truly the final frontier for a rickshaw. The hills are steep, the terrain is rough and there's not a rickshaw mechanic for hundreds of miles. The views aren't bad either.
Shimla, Himachal Pradesh (2276m)
You can get here by overnight bus from Delhi
Leh, Jammu & Kashmir (3,500m)
There are daily flights back to Delhi
The 'roads' from Shimla to Leh are open from June to September, when the route isn't blocked by snow. The highest point is the Tanglang La pass which is 5,328 metres.
