The Himalayan Crossing – True to its name, the route criss-crosses through mountain ranges of The Himalayas, taking you through Kinnaur and Spiti Valleys, before ending on one of the toughest passes on this planet – The Rohtang La. This is one among those races that are tougher, with freezing temps, icy landscapes, brutal climbs, and some very menacing trails that hurt our egos over and over again. The events include 338K and 153K.
