Story: Trouble in Paradise
Instructor: Ron Haviv

The north Indian state of Himachal Pradesh lies at the foothills of the Himalayas. Manali, a tourist town in the Kullu Valley is the set-off point for foreign trekkers, spiritual seekers, and hedonists drawn by the promise of cheap high quality marijuana in an idyllic setting. Many never leave.
Despite this influx of outsiders, Indians make up the majority of tourists. Honeymooners and families from across the country come north to escape the sweltering summer months.
This Himalayan Shangri-La is in danger of being spoiled by the environmental impacts of intensive tourism. There is trouble in paradise.

The Royal Enfield motorcycle is one of the most powerful bikes in India. The distinctive sound and look of this machine has garnered an almost cult-like fascination with travelers on the subcontinent. The roar of the engine can be heard from the beaches of southern Goa to the mountainous passes of the Himalayas. Manali, where this story takes place, serves as hub to this subculture. Here at Bonny Sony Motors third generation mechanics share their love of bikes with their customers.
