About Alchi

Alchi is famous for its monastery which preserves 11 th & 12 th Century wall paintings. On the way is the "Magnetic Hill". It is a "Gravity Hill" where objects travel defying the laws of gravity. Bikes would travel uphill the road while the engine is stopped. This effect is created by some "optical illusion" stuff which we failed to understand as bikes literally rode upwards without any kind of force applied. Also the place is a good photo-op. In-fact any place in laddakh resembles a studio. Pictures are always perfect. On reaching Alchi we visited the "Nimoo Bazgo" Hydroelectric Plant (Dam).Road to the dam is a small ghat which was quiet narrow for a bike ride. On the return we halted @ the market for dinner and the day ended with rich, thrilling & chilling memories of the biking experience.
