In Behalf of Himalayan Adventure Team ‘Pinas:

“We feel greatly proud that we’ve made history by reaching and raising the Philippine flag for the 1st time atKhardungla

“The World’s Highest Motorable Road”. The experience of riding in extreme cold weather, rough and often ice slushed terrain that has stretched our physical, mental and emotional being has humbled us deeply. We are glad that we have opened the gateway for other Filipino riders to conquer the Himalayas. To God be the Glory and Mabuhay and Pilipinas!” -Jimmy D.L. Barinaga

A proud moment for us in the motorcycle community! Mabuhay Pilipinas!
