The Roof of the World Expedition involves a group of 8 friends and acquaintances taking two 4x4s overland from England to Mumbai via the Karakoram and the Himalayas. The team depart on 9th July, and plan to return to the UK on 20th Sept. Hopefully they'll be using this blog to keep family and friends updated as and when they find Internet connectivity on their trip - making blog posts and uploading the odd photo. We 've also asked them to give us the lat/long of their posts as they make them so that we can automatically plot them on Google Maps and Google Earth (follow the Maps links on the top menu). The planned route is already up on both of these systems.
