Terribly sorry guys! I will have to back out of the proposed Leh trip this year due to the shortage of offs from work; the wedding date was fixed for this September (happened out of the blue!) and would consume close to 22-25 privilege offs. Already took 15 days earlier this January on account of a hospitalisation and recuperation, and would be taking a week off later this month. If I ask for any more offs for this year, my boss would ask me to submit the resignation!

Was eagerly looking forward for the trip during July this year but this happened. For those who are making it, I wish you guys the best and look forward to reading the travelogues. Have a safe and fun-filled trip!

Me & fellow Bhpian Firefoot have almost confirmed the dates. We are planning on leaving on 29th August from Blore & 14th Sept return to Blore. I guess 17 days are enough as this will be one of our many upcoming leh journeys.

Anybody from Blore okay with the above date. we can meet up in the coming weeks to discuss other things & finalize a travel plan.

I along with 3 of my friends are planning a trip from Pune to Leh from the 14th August to 29th August. I've never traveled to the North, so this will be my first time. My only source of information is Team BHP. Anyone travelling around the same time ?

I am thinking of it, but haven't been able to get away from work for two years. So am tentative for the next year.
Apart from TBHP also check Facebook for some good sources and experiences of people who have travelled to the region. You can also contact the walking encyclopedia of the Indian roads, H V Kumar.

It should be.
Lineas and Altos have done it, why not an i20?

HI Guys,

Hopefully I am not late but I have been wanting to do this circuit for quite sometime and even bought a Pajero in 2012 just for this road trip but alas the pajero is sold and I didn't get to do this trip as well :(

Please count me in from Bangalore, ok both to be a passenger or get my XUV if there are enough people to accompany me.

I see a lot of people fro Bangalore were interested in this trip during Aug-Sep'14. However, I am not seeing a lot of action here.

Bangalore enthusiasts,
Please speak up and let us know if you are interested in joining. We FOUR of us are going in my TFort around Aug 15 times [to utilize the loooong weekend to the hilt] and return by first week of September. If more people who expressed interest in this thread respond, we can arrange for a meet to formalize our plans, meet others who had been-there-done-that and have a pretty succesful and memorable trip. Please respond ASAP

Yes. You have company. I just posted and my post will appear soon. I gathered some 8-10 names who are all from Bangalore and interested in doing this circuit during August-Septembet'14. Once we hear back from them, lets have a meet-and-plan.
