Kiwi mountain bikers Kelly McGarry and Jeremy Lyttle rode what's reported as the world's highest road, and right off it, in the Himalayas at 18,380 feet above sea level. The video's beautiful and will get you fired up for your next "road trip."
When my friends and I hiked into the village of Chokortoe in central Bhutan, we were expecting to find temples and yak herders, but not this tiny engine parts shop.
Commonly known as the highest road in the world, the Khardung-la pass at 17,582 feet is dizzying and dangerous. But it is "child's play" compared to how it once was, before climate change began erasing its defining glaciers.
