Some Motorbike Stunts by Aneesh Airborne Awasthi in Himalayan ranges : Kullu Sarahan !!!

Camping at Kullu Sarahan, some trekking to nearby waterfalls, Cricket on lush green ground and some bike stunts around water bodies... It was a wonderful day at Kullu Sarahan and probably I would not be able to write about amazing bike stunts by Aneesh !!!
Camping at Kullu Sarahan, some trekking to nearby waterfalls, Cricket on lush green ground and some bike stunts around water bodies... It was a wonderful day at Kullu Sarahan and probably I would not be able to write about amazing bike stunts by Aneesh !!!Basically it started with some random chit-chat while coming back from a short trek to nearby waterfall... Aneesh came on his bike and was doing some crazy stuff on the way... Like crossing a thin wooden bridge with his bike, irritating bulls who started chasing him later etc..Later some of the folks asked him to show some stunts and he was very happy about it :) ... It seemed he was already waiting for this request :)As we said that we will be shooting photographs and videos of your stunts, he thought of washing his bike in style :) ... We shall be able to share those videos soon !!!It was important to wash it well, so multiple rounds in this water stream were required...After washing his bike, Aneesh thought of writing his name on this lush green ground at Kullu Sarahan... Video embedded in the end is about the same activity of writing name on ground !!! Just check out this warm-up session !!!Suddenly he realized that helmet and other required equipments were missing and he should not proceed with stunting exercise without those... A quick ride till camp and coming back took 8 odd minutes and everyone was excited to see real action !!!Sarahan school was open during the day and classes were going on in open area outside school boundary from where whole Sarahan ground was visible... All school children along with their teachers were looking towards us and somehow we were feeling bad about it... Bust suddenly teachers thought of freeing up all the students for some time and watch the action in their village !!! You can one boy and a girl in the background of photograph above...While going up, he drove bike on this bridge but somehow he was cautious in front of my Travelling Camera :) ... which was quite obvious ;)In case you don't see much energy and adventure in these shots, that's pure fault of my photography as this whole session was mind blowing and his bike was flying like anything... Even I feel that I could not capture it well...Suddenly whole environment changed in Sarahan... People form village started coming to this ground and few folks who used to play cricket also thought of coming to this ground in advance... Whole day in Kullu Sarahan was full of fun and masti ... And we enjoyed each moment of it...Chief Bike Marshal and MTB offical Mr. Aneesh Ariborne Awasthi, showing off his gadgets :)Anyway Aneesh is currently looking for sponsorship to get new bike and here he is showing everything on his Pulsar... As per knowledge I have, he has won many competitive bike rallies with same bike while other competitors have been coming with imported bikes mainly used in such rallies...There were lots of water streams in this ground, but the whole session was smooth and enjoyable... and  I pray to god that Himachal Government don't see this ground, as they are spoiling some of the natural beauties by building sports complexes on top of them... I don't think it's right...In Feb 2011, Aneesh had made a record of reaching Hatu peak with his bike when whole area was covered with snow... If you have missed, I strongly recommend you to see this story about the amazing Climb @ Climbing, Falling, Stumbling, and Crawling to theHatuTemple : MISSION HATU PEAK (21 FEBRUARY 2011Lot more action to come... So just keep watching this place for more fun and Stunts !!!All these photographs were clicked during Mountain Terrain Biking event in Himachal. It was forth day of the event and a rest day at Sarahan.

Basically it started with some random chit-chat while coming back from a short trek to nearby waterfall... Aneesh came on his bike and was doing some crazy stuff on the way... Like crossing a thin wooden bridge with his bike, irritating bulls who started chasing him later etc..

As per knowledge I have, he has won many competitive bike rallies with same bike while other competitors have been coming with imported bikes mainly used in such rallies...There were lots of water streams in this ground, but the whole session was smooth and enjoyable... and  I pray to god that Himachal Government don't see this ground, as they are spoiling some of the natural beauties by building sports complexes on top of them... I don't think it's right...In Feb 2011, Aneesh had made a record of reaching Hatu peak with his bike when whole area was covered with snow... If you have missed, I strongly recommend you to see this story about the amazing Climb @ Climbing, Falling, Stumbling, and Crawling to theHatuTemple : MISSION HATU PEAK (21 FEBRUARY 2011Lot more action to come...

Suddenly whole environment changed in Sarahan... People form village started coming to this ground and few folks who used to play cricket also thought of coming to this ground in advance... Whole day in Kullu Sarahan was full of fun and masti ... And we enjoyed each moment of it...

Camping at Kullu Sarahan, some trekking to nearby waterfalls, Cricket on lush green ground and some bike stunts around water bodies... It was a wonderful day at Kullu Sarahan and probably I would not be able to write about amazing bike stunts by Aneesh !!!Basically it started with some random chit-chat while coming back from a short trek to nearby waterfall... Aneesh came on his bike and was doing some crazy stuff on the way... Like crossing a thin wooden bridge with his bike, irritating bulls who started chasing him later etc..Later some of the folks asked him to show some stunts and he was very happy about it :) ... It seemed he was already waiting for this request :)As we said that we will be shooting photographs and videos of your stunts, he thought of washing his bike in style :) ... We shall be able to share those videos soon !!!It was important to wash it well, so multiple rounds in this water stream were required...After washing his bike, Aneesh thought of writing his name on this lush green ground at Kullu Sarahan... Video embedded in the end is about the same activity of writing name on ground !!! Just check out this warm-up session !!!Suddenly he realized that helmet and other required equipments were missing and he should not proceed with stunting exercise without those... A quick ride till camp and coming back took 8 odd minutes and everyone was excited to see real action !!!Sarahan school was open during the day and classes were going on in open area outside school boundary from where whole Sarahan ground was visible... All school children along with their teachers were looking towards us and somehow we were feeling bad about it...

All these photographs were clicked during Mountain Terrain Biking event in Himachal. It was forth day of the event and a rest day at Sarahan.

Final day of 'Mountain Terrain Biking Himachal 2011' started from Dhomri, which is one of the popular places for skiing in Himachal Pradesh. It's near to Narkanda and nice place surrounded by high cedars. Temperature was very low in the morning and day was bit lazy as compared to other 7 days...As you can see, sun has started touching camping ground but still many folks are inside the tents. Narkanda is nearby market and some of the folks wanted to have nice tea, which was obviously not available at camps :) ... During this time I was alone as my gang was also in market to have some snacks and morning tea...After leaving Dhomri, we followed main highway to reach the starting point of only stage of 8th day. On final day, there was only single stage and it was same as that of starting stage of MTB 2010/2011. Since we had to go via main highway, the roads were jammed due to some political rally. Actually we crossed starting point and thought of entering into the stage from the other end as Final Flying finish was more important... After fighting with traffic at Dhali, we reached Mashobara and had to wait for some time. During that time we visited one of the resort there, to meet one of the friends.Soon after we heard some noise in air and reached back at flying finish point.Above photograph shows the winner literally flying on top of Finish line of MTB Himachal 2011. Now I know, why they call it flying finish. This was the first group to hit the flying finish on final day.Most of the riders were happy with mixed emotions about this whole race and others had already started thinking about offices. Anyway, everyone was now more involved in activities like - Photo-shoots, email/cell-number exchanges etc. Everyone wanted to be in touch with others and photographs were best way for keeping these memories alive.Here is another troop with two folks who broke their arms on the way of MTB Himachal 2011. Mr. Andre, on extreme right, was winner of MTB Himachal 2010 Masters. Since he had to quit this time, Amitabh won this time. Amitabh is second person from left, who won Masters of MTB Himachal 2011.Few more folks joined in ... Mr Rohit making them cheer :)MTB team was mostly worried about their banners and branding posters, which are important to have money :) ... So here is one photograph with MTB 2011 banner. This was the time when every rider just wanted to reach at their Hotels in Shimla. Everyone wanted to have some rest now...Finally everyone started the free ride from Mashobara to Ridge through Sajauli and IGMC. This photograph was clicked where Mashobara road hits main highway again.Now all of them needed to ride in high traffic areas, markets... and this one is at Dhali !!! I was on a motorbike and scared of the situation when 100 odd riders were on the road and the traffic was not very disciplined. This is one of the very difficult problem on hills and dangerous as well.Rider crossing Saljauli Market... From Sanjauli Chowk, we had to move towards Indira Gandhi Medical College, which leads to Lakkar Bazar and then Ridge. On reaching Ridge, plan was to have a quick ceremony to announce winners and exposure to media.But Marshal who were guiding this group got a signal from Ridge that preparations are slow and they need more time. Now, it was their headache to manage the delay :) ... So many times these riders were stopped on the way, to make sure that we reach just in time. Although many folks were annoyed...After a break we again started. This shot was taken near Shimla College which comes on the way from Sanjauli to Ridge. This was a wonderful road and there was a time when people used to rent out a cycle from lakkar Bazar to have a round till Sanjauli chowk and come back. Now cycles on rent are not available, but people still prefer to walk on this road.Anyway, this kafila was about to reach IGMC and everyone stopped. And this was final halt of 45 minutes because preparation on ridge were not done. But for of the folks it a good opportunity to show some cycle stunts on wide roads of Shimla.And why motorbikes should stay behind !!! Aneesh also tried some stunts, but still riders wanted to move towards Ridge and wanted to have some rest at their hotels.

FOR MORE PHOTOGRAPHS OF MTB 2011 :- 

After wonderful stay at Kullu Sarahan, it was time to move ahead with new challenges. This was a long day for us due to lot many reasons... Let's have this PHOTO JOURNEY of first half of Day-5 during Mountain Terrain Biking, Himachal Pradesh 2011...Journey started through lovely landscapes and Apple Orchards... This was a steep downhill till Baghipul... This road was very rough and turns were really dangerous.First stage started from Sarahan School and finished at Baghipul junction. Then there was free ride till water junction and had to start second stage of 5th day during MTB Himachal 2011.Media folks settled inside various fields of chalai and Apple orchards to have some creative video shots... Here Mr. Rohit waiting for a rider to come ...After few second all of them suddenly crossed us and many of us were busy in settling cameras...This day we walked for approximately 4 kilometers to try various shots at different places. While reached near our car, we got to know that it's tyre has come out and need to get in touch with mechanics. Without giving second thought, we kept clicking till the point we could catch riders...Here Mr. Padam Subba, captain of Nepal team !!!Some of the villagers came up to the road for seeing all these cycle riders and some of them stopped our cars to let us know that Himachal Government is ignoring this region and requested to bring it to their notice that only bus to these villages has stopped coming. It was really strange to hear that only bus on this stretch of 13 kilometers had stopped coming.One of the MTB Himachal rider crossing chalai fields on the way to Baghipul from Kullu-Sarahan... The yellow crop in the background is called Chalai. This particular thing is considered as a good stuff for keeping the body warm. This region gets snow early during the winters and it's important to have such crops.Mr. Andre, champion of MTB Himachal 2010 masters... Unfortunately his bike skit over a stone and he got injured and couldn't continue. This happened during stage one only, between Sarahan to Baghipul. He was leading masters till this point.A framer going to his fields with all the equipments for plowing and stopped on roadside to see these riding flying at their village.Since our car had left ahead as it needed some service, we had to catch another car of some official. After some shots near a small village on the way, we stopped one of the official car and came down to Baghipul. One of the other rider was fixing the Tyre of his bike on the way... During MTB Himachal, some mechanics remain on the terrain but many times riders have to fix the minor problems to avoid the time lapse due to locating a mechanic and getting the problem fixed by him.MTB Rider crossing through an apple orchard near Baghipul. This whole areas has lots of apples orchards. and most of the families around these villages are dependent on agriculture only. After reaching Baghipul, we got to know that our car will be fixed in next 1 hour.Rather than waiting for an hour in car or around Baghipul market, we thought of going towards Shrikhand river and have bath in chilled water. Sunlight was our hope to have  a bath in this chilled water coming from snow covered Shrikhand mountain range.These were some of the wonderful moments of MTB Himachal... More Photographs of the event to come... So keep watching this place and get in touch at VJ@travellingcamera in case of more information about this event !!!

After wonderful stay at Kullu Sarahan, it was time to move ahead with new challenges. This was a long day for us due to lot many reasons... Let's have this PHOTO JOURNEY of first half of Day-5 during Mountain Terrain Biking, Himachal Pradesh 2011...Journey started through lovely landscapes and Apple Orchards... This was a steep downhill till Baghipul... This road was very rough and turns were really dangerous.First stage started from Sarahan School and finished at Baghipul junction. Then there was free ride till water junction and had to start second stage of 5th day during MTB Himachal 2011.Media folks settled inside various fields of chalai and Apple orchards to have some creative video shots... Here Mr. Rohit waiting for a rider to come ...After few second all of them suddenly crossed us and many of us were busy in settling cameras...This day we walked for approximately 4 kilometers to try various shots at different places. While reached near our car, we got to know that it's tyre has come out and need to get in touch with mechanics. Without giving second thought, we kept clicking till the point we could catch riders...Here Mr. Padam Subba, captain of Nepal team !!!Some of the villagers came up to the road for seeing all these cycle riders and some of them stopped our cars to let us know that Himachal Government is ignoring this region and requested to bring it to their notice that only bus to these villages has stopped coming. It was really strange to hear that only bus on this stretch of 13 kilometers had stopped coming.One of the MTB Himachal rider crossing chalai fields on the way to Baghipul from Kullu-Sarahan... The yellow crop in the background is called Chalai. This particular thing is considered as a good stuff for keeping the body warm. This region gets snow early during the winters and it's important to have such crops.Mr. Andre, champion of MTB Himachal 2010 masters... Unfortunately his bike skit over a stone and he got injured and couldn't continue. This happened during stage one only, between Sarahan to Baghipul. He was leading masters till this point.A framer going to his fields with all the equipments for plowing and stopped on roadside to see these riding flying at their village.Since our car had left ahead as it needed some service, we had to catch another car of some official. After some shots near a small village on the way, we stopped one of the official car and came down to Baghipul. One of the other rider was fixing the Tyre of his bike on the way... During MTB Himachal, some mechanics remain on the terrain but many times riders have to fix the minor problems to avoid the time lapse due to locating a mechanic and getting the problem fixed by him.MTB Rider crossing through an apple orchard near Baghipul. This whole areas has lots of apples orchards. and most of the families around these villages are dependent on agriculture only. After reaching Baghipul, we got to know that our car will be fixed in next 1 hour.Rather than waiting for an hour in car or around Baghipul market, we thought of going towards Shrikhand river and have bath in chilled water. Sunlight was our hope to have  a bath in this chilled water coming from snow covered Shrikhand mountain range.These were some of the wonderful moments of MTB Himachal... More Photographs of the event to come... So keep watching this place and get in touch at VJ@travellingcamera in case of more information about this event !!!



Final day of 'Mountain Terrain Biking Himachal 2011' started from Dhomri, which is one of the popular places for skiing in Himachal Pradesh. It's near to Narkanda and nice place surrounded by high cedars. Temperature was very low in the morning and day was bit lazy as compared to other 7 days...As you can see, sun has started touching camping ground but still many folks are inside the tents. Narkanda is nearby market and some of the folks wanted to have nice tea, which was obviously not available at camps :) ... During this time I was alone as my gang was also in market to have some snacks and morning tea...After leaving Dhomri, we followed main highway to reach the starting point of only stage of 8th day. On final day, there was only single stage and it was same as that of starting stage of MTB 2010/2011. Since we had to go via main highway, the roads were jammed due to some political rally. Actually we crossed starting point and thought of entering into the stage from the other end as Final Flying finish was more important... After fighting with traffic at Dhali, we reached Mashobara and had to wait for some time. During that time we visited one of the resort there, to meet one of the friends.Soon after we heard some noise in air and reached back at flying finish point.Above photograph shows the winner literally flying on top of Finish line of MTB Himachal 2011. Now I know, why they call it flying finish. This was the first group to hit the flying finish on final day.Most of the riders were happy with mixed emotions about this whole race and others had already started thinking about offices. Anyway, everyone was now more involved in activities like - Photo-shoots, email/cell-number exchanges etc. Everyone wanted to be in touch with others and photographs were best way for keeping these memories alive.Here is another troop with two folks who broke their arms on the way of MTB Himachal 2011. Mr. Andre, on extreme right, was winner of MTB Himachal 2010 Masters. Since he had to quit this time, Amitabh won this time. Amitabh is second person from left, who won Masters of MTB Himachal 2011.Few more folks joined in ... Mr Rohit making them cheer :)MTB team was mostly worried about their banners and branding posters, which are important to have money :) ... So here is one photograph with MTB 2011 banner. This was the time when every rider just wanted to reach at their Hotels in Shimla. Everyone wanted to have some rest now...Finally everyone started the free ride from Mashobara to Ridge through Sajauli and IGMC. This photograph was clicked where Mashobara road hits main highway again.Now all of them needed to ride in high traffic areas, markets... and this one is at Dhali !!! I was on a motorbike and scared of the situation when 100 odd riders were on the road and the traffic was not very disciplined. This is one of the very difficult problem on hills and dangerous as well.Rider crossing Saljauli Market... From Sanjauli Chowk, we had to move towards Indira Gandhi Medical College, which leads to Lakkar Bazar and then Ridge. On reaching Ridge, plan was to have a quick ceremony to announce winners and exposure to media.But Marshal who were guiding this group got a signal from Ridge that preparations are slow and they need more time. Now, it was their headache to manage the delay :) ... So many times these riders were stopped on the way, to make sure that we reach just in time. Although many folks were annoyed...After a break we again started. This shot was taken near Shimla College which comes on the way from Sanjauli to Ridge. This was a wonderful road and there was a time when people used to rent out a cycle from lakkar Bazar to have a round till Sanjauli chowk and come back. Now cycles on rent are not available, but people still prefer to walk on this road.Anyway, this kafila was about to reach IGMC and everyone stopped. And this was final halt of 45 minutes because preparation on ridge were not done. But for of the folks it a good opportunity to show some cycle stunts on wide roads of Shimla.And why motorbikes should stay behind !!! Aneesh also tried some stunts, but still riders wanted to move towards Ridge and wanted to have some rest at their hotels.

All the best Aneesh. Wishing you a fat sponsorship and a lean-n-mean machine. Be Safe.

Great shots VJ. Would it make sense to open a moderated forum at Ghum, on 'Shooting Best Travel Pics', a Q and A , sort of 'Expert's Choice'. I have been thinking for a long time but I am not able to visualize it so far. a regular forum wont work, it gradually becomes a big, diff to manage, pile of discussion.

If I am correct, this is one of the top 10 posts having such a high number of comments. Again very popular on facebook, as like count shows.

Aneesh, you are already very popular and let's see who is lucky sponsor to have you.
