The Himalayas... the dream inside the dream, and a myth turned into reality for Delphine and Damien! 1.5 year after living France, they ride across forbidden Tibet, the highest country in the world, on their tandem bike, for 2 month and a half, and make a break along the way in Lhassa to capture the Tibetan folk's unmovable faith under Chinese occupation.

Exhausted but marvelling at India's incredible life, they finally make it back home through the Old Continent: Turkey, Bulgaria, Bosnia... meeting fascinating people on the way.
