In 2014 Jacob Zurl crossed the Himalaya on the Manali-Leh Highway nonstop in just 38h 46min. "This adventure has shaped me and opened my eyes to the world," says Zurl. The idea for the trip came from the desire to experience this incredible road again and visit his Indian friends. Since 2015 he is now organizing this Himalayan active journey.



Jacob's Himalayan crossing was also filmed and ran several times in 2016 on ORF SPORT + and various film festivals. Camera: Raoul Kopacka; Production: HENX (Nils Kaltschmidt and Vincent Seidl). The documentation can be streamed under the following link:
