Riding Solo to the Top of the World (2006)


Not only an inspirational journey but also a call to arms to pick up a camera and get shootin’!

Riding Solo is about filmmaker Gaurav Jani’s solo motorcycle journey from Mumbai to one of the remotest places in the world, the Changthang Plateau in Ladakh bordering China. The film is even more extraordinary for the fact that Jani was a one man camera crew unit who loaded his bike with 300 kg of equipment/supplies and set off on a journey through some of the world’s most difficult terrain. Riding Solo has collected 11 awards at 21 different film festivals around the world. Unpretentious, sensitive and modest in equal measure Jani and his film are a refreshing alternative to today’s TV travel shows.
