journey to ladakh
« on: July 25, 2016, 06:46:29 AM »
When everyone else is beating the path from Delhi to Agra to see the Taj Mahal, you’ll be heading north to Ladakh, near the border of Tibet, for an altogether different side of India. High up here in the Himalayas, life really slows down, and your days are reduced to gorgeous walks, mountain greenery, impossibly fresh air.

Just being here is the experience.

when i was planning for this trip my friends told me that it will be a sheer madness to do it on bike from rudrapur (uttrakhand), somehow i convinced my cousin brother for this trip and that too on pulsar200NS  :o

i took guidance from some of my friends who visited ladakh region earlier

we planned to enter from Srinagar side and exit from Manali, because there are permit issue if you enter from Manali side

Our Itinerary was like this

Day 0 Rudrapur to Haridwar

Day 1 Haridwar to Pathankot

Day 2 Pathankot to Srinagar

Day 3 Srinagar to Kargil

Day 4 Kargil to Leh

Day 5 Leh to Nubra Valley

Day 6 Nubra Valley to Tso Pangong

Day 7 Tso Pangong to Sarchu

Day 8 Sarchu to Kullu

Day 9 Kullu to Ponta Sahib

Day 10 Ponta Sahib To Rudrapur


To be continued......................

Bhai, I was planning to go in July but this Kashmir issue kept me back, I also got my leaves approved. Now I will wait for August to pass through and will attempt in September if my leaves get approved again. Last year went to cover Spiti circuit on 150 CC Bike and it was one hell of a experience.

Dobara chalna ho to batana :D

I know I faced this problem at chandertal when the oxygen level goes low but still my 150 CC has climbed a good amount of inclinations and does good and yes landscapes are far more good than Spiti but I read that the roads at Spiti are worst. Let's see if I go there in September.

Road is tough in patches like at  Zojila pass(almost no road).Road from Nubra valley to Pangong lake is tough it's a kind of shortcut because you don't have to come all the way back to leh (generally riders do).Unlike spiti number of passes are more and altitude is much higher, you will touch top 3 highest motorable passes of the world  all crossing 5000+ m altitude, and rest passes are also crossing 4000+ m
