The You tube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fb0jBQNCFo) of the road that we took is testimony to the dangerous yet spectacular roads of the Northern Indian foothills of Himalayas. Surrounded by snow capped mountains and lush valleys cut by torrential glacial streams -India's state of Uttarkhand has been a place of spirituality and pilgrimage for millenea. As the abode of lord Shiva, the Himalayas have always had a special heart for Hindus and Pakistanis who want sections of this area). The need to transport pilgrims have resulted in many roads built under less than ideal conditions. It is not uncommon to hear of several buses plunging down deep ravines every year. Another route to ''Moksha" , the abode of Hindu Gods in the sky. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fb0jBQNCFo
