Six years ago Dave “Mushypea” Turner heard of a mysterious valley in the Himalayas called the Shambhala. An avid adventure cyclist, Turner decided then and there that he wanted to seek the Shambhala out.
In Tibetan-adventurist lore, the Shambhala is the place where James Hilton got the model for Shangri-la, the Tibetan monastery that he depicted in his 1930′s novel Last Horizon.
About a year and a half ago, Turner set off on his mountain bike from China and traversed the entire ridge of the Himalayas in search of the Shambhala. His journey took him 15 months.
