Frozen Highway is an unique project, of documenting the unusual Himalayan winter cycling expedition. The two daring souls from Bangalore, India set out to accomplish this impossible feat by carrying out a extreme adventure journey in the Ladakh region of Jammu & Kashmir, India during the mid-winter season when temperature plummet to as low as minus (-)40°C in the month of JAN – FEB 2015.
One of the main goals of the project “Frozen Highway” was always to set a new benchmark in the field of Adventure Sports in India. By successfully undertaking this cutting edge expedition, in one of the toughest terrains & hostile climate on the planet, we hope that we have showcased how ordinary individuals can achieve extra-ordinary results with grit determination, meticulous planning and pushing the body limits beyond the known.
This 36 days long winter cycling expedition was led by the passionate mountain biker & tourer Rajesh P Nayak, with support from an aspiring mountaineer & cyclist, Sharath Vishnu as a co-rider. The entire expedition was documented by a renowned documentary filmmaker- Prashanth S Nayaka. The month long expedition on a mountain bike in the dead winter took, the two adventure cyclists through some of the world’s highest (high altitude) motor-able passes, frozen lakes & rivers. The trails which cycled on by duo, has never been attempted before on a bicycle during peak winter and for this very reason the project became very unique and created a lot of interest among the adventure community across India and all over the world. Currently team is working on the much awaited documentary, which is expected to be ready in the first quarter of 2016 and have plan to take it to worldwide through adventure film festivals.
