54-year-old Vilma Fedretia Carvalho From Kundapura Becomes First Oldest To Ride Bike Across Himalayas

54-year-old Vilma Fedretia Carvalho from Kundapura becomesthe  First Oldest To Ride Bike Across Himalayas. Vilma proved that age doesn’t matter to achieve your dreams.

She covered a Himalayan expedition on her motorcycle from ‘Leh to Leh’ while passing through Khardung La, Nubra, Hunder, Pangong Lake, Ts0 Moriri and reached  Leh. She rode 900 kilometres in 6 days on the second highest motorable road in the world. Out of 900 kilometres of her journey, 500 kilometres seemed quite a challenging and difficult task given the low oxygen level, road conditions and the terrains. With no Internet or electricity in this terrain, a motorbike expedition seemed quite a challenge.

Vilma was accompanied by her daughter on a four-wheeler. She practised riding a motorcycle on the Yezdi Roadking with the help of her brother. Currently, she is working in Bengaluru as a corporate trainer.
