    We just got done with Gorson Bugyal (Auli) … at the beginning stage, but wondering how you compile the list of treks to do next 🙂 … so jealous! Ill return from time to time to your blog for more info.

    I can’t believe what I see on your site! To reach peaks by bike is something I’ve not encountered. And I’ve found some fellow Andean travelers! Please check out my site for content that supports my book, “Clawing for the Stars: A Solo Climber in the Highest Andes.”

    I will make time over the next week to view more of what you have out on your site. It will be a real pleasure.

    Sincerely

      Hi Bob,
      Good to hear from you! I think reaching the Puna peaks by bike is becoming increasingly popular – pretty much all the 6000ers up there are accessible on 2 wheels, with a bit of effort.
      Will check out your book!
      Neil
