Reached Leh

After 6 days of the toughest terrains and endurance skills, myself and Dhanush has reached Leh safely with our bikes in good conditions. The ride was much more difficult that what we thought it would be.

Will update more once we are back home on 9th of July. The roads back till Amritsar is supposed to be even more difficult.

Cheerio till then!

I know by experience that the place is beautiful!! The best thing I liked was the "journey"!!

Khardungla Pass, Tanglangla pass - both are good.. While on the way to Leh (Manali - Leh), we stayed for 2 days at a place called Sarchu.. don't know if u noticed it.. but that place was my best part of the tour :-)

lekshmi: Thanks Leks, that was touching. Would have come to meet you and Sunil @ Delhi if we could. Thanks to your prayers, we are back safe.
Silver: Thankoo!! :)
Sandeep: Thankoo buddy. Snaps and travelogue will be online within 48 hours.
Neermathalam: Snaps on the way!!
BVN: Yeps....It was the heights....Madness personified! hehe
Flyaway:Adventure..hmm..yes. But didnt think it wud be so adventurous :) Will take the tag asap....
Toothless: Thanks!! More will come soon. Wonderful spirit. Thats the way it should be! Go for next june!
Scribbles: You will surely go there some day. But go in a bike. Going on a 4 wheeler wont give 1/10th of the effect!
Venkat: Man....What you told is perfect. Its not the passes or the highest point that really catches you on. Its the whole journey. We did stay at Sarchu for a night, and some real acute cases of mountain sickness was floating around. Stayed at Rumtse too on the way.
But venkat....Tell you what. Goin in a bike through this way puffing and panting for oxygen in the midst of rivers, desert, rocks and simply 'No Roads' was the best part. It magnifies the 'experience' by multifolds!

you are right Abhi.. even when we went, we saw bikers.. we cud just feel jealous :-)

at Sarchu, even we felt sick bcoz of lack of oxygen.. but the unscheduled break there was great (the fan belt of our sumo broke, and nearest place was 1 day away!!).. just us and nature.. no electricity, no homes. just 2 tents and thats Sarchu!!

definitely, wud try to go on bike someday... waiting for your pics in the meantime :-)

This is extremely impressive content. I like how you brought forward many clear viewpoints and I agree with many. Your article coaxes thought out of the reader from start to finish. I really like this.
