My thoughts exactly! But then, the 3D effect and the 2D photos don't quite match each other, do they?

BTW, what caused your brakes to jam up? Broken retraction springs? And how old is your car that it needed changing the rear brake shoes?

3D is always better. Next yr.

Car is 3.5 yr old and has run 40K km. the rear right break pad asbestos layer come off the metal holder (brake shoe) and got jammed between the two. The pads had never been changed before.

July 15th Day 7 – Leh to Khardung La – 2hr to go and another 2hr to return to Leh.



40 km for Leh. Leh to Khardung La, Good roads with some bad patches.


Cold and feels like Heven above the clouds. The beauty and the fact that you made it only adds to the excitement. Hot Maggie and Black tea is a bonus.
I hadn’t plan to go to Nubur. Wanted to, but the leaves were limited.

July 16th Day 8 – Leh to Pangong Tso (turned back from zingral), then to Sarchu
The first disappointment of the trip was that I was not able to make it to Pangong Tso.
It was snowing and with fog like conditions, I had to return from Diesel road, about 2-3 km ahead of Zingral. There was 1 ft of snow on the road and 10 ft visibility. I decided not to risk it.

I shall return. I will return. Nubur and Pangong Tso is the inspiration for the next trip.

Since we were early and had visited the Leh points already, I decide to head to Sarchu the same day.


Morey Plains can be difficult if you don’t pay attention to the sand ahead. Saw a truck and a camper van stuck in the soft terrain. I managed to get through without getting stuck by keeping up the momentum and staying on truck made tracks. Did have 2 instances where the car started to slow down, as I crossed softer sand patch, just keep going in 1st gear and hope for the best. This is an isolated area, but you do cross another vehicle every 5 min. People here are extremely friendly and help out. Please always carry a Tow Cable and 2 Wooden Planks as a further assistance.

Hey UniqueMods, don't worry about the quality of the pics mate. After all, they're captures of Ladakh and can't disappoint! And quite a few have nice composition.

Sad to hear about the Pangong episode, join the gang. (me's already a member).

The pics of Chang La remind me of the time when I was there. The pass does get a good amount of snowfall even in July. In July 2009, I had to wait for sometime as the bulldozer was clearing the snow on the road. Wasn't the road being cleared when you're there?

UM's narration made us bold enough to do Leh in Linea, no Raviji?
After all we have the bottom Sump to scrap with any cruel hump, when we tempted to look out 'sight-seeing' while at wheels

Seeing the roads I think those bad patches are better than Kerala's roads after Monsoon, no much to worry !

Hope that answers your question.

There was snow till my cars bumper and getting stuck on the grill. the bulldozer was there but being just my wife and me, i decided not to drive in heavy fog. Couldn't predict how the condition would be on the return leg.

I shall be back to cross Chang La and reach Pangong Tso...

Ehh.. I havent clicked any snaps of the really bad roads. No time to do that then. Linea will cross, but please don't go with a mindset, that not a single stone will touch the under body.

More pics to come, of the Big Scare.

2nd Puncture


While Nubur and Pangong Tso are the inspiration for the next trip, Rohtang La is the deterrent.
Never take a small car to Rohtang.

No matter how many army men and truck drives tell you that it’s easily doable, it’s not easy and will take a bit out of the car.
I was counting how many hits and scrapes the under body was taking, I reached 45 and then things got a lot worse.

Loose mud, muck, and 1.5ft deep truck tracks where I can’t follow. I would just bottom out. 1 tire in the track and the other on the center raised channel but, kept getting the car stuck if I slow down. Plus the car kept changing directions and required constant correction. I almost veered towards the cliff twice. And trying to stay near the mountain side, while on full acceleration in 1st gear cost me a running board. Front bumper, right running board were repaired when back in Mumbai.
Add all this with Fog, Heavy rain and it was already dark at 8pm, I was in a scary situation.

Never will I ever cross Roghtag in anything less than a 4x4 high ground vehicle.

I am surprised and thankful to the amount of abuse my poor Bluee ( Santro ) took, but didn’t give up and kept going.

The 2 Rotang snaps are not mine. But it will give an idea to how bad it can get.

July 18th Day 10 – Manali Rest and sightseeing
Next day’s wash and checkup at Manali, actually reveled the extent to which the mud had covered the radiator, fan and also found fist size stones sitting in the engine bay.
There was belt noises, excess fan noise and a ticking noise on turning. The cause of all this was mud and sand in the engine bay. And good 2 hr diesel wash at Manali, took care of all the noises.

Some much needed rest after the previous days effort.

July 19th Day 11 – Manali to Ambala -
July 20th Day 12 – Ambala to Udaipur
July 21st Day 13 – Udaipur to Mumbai
The rest was uneventful and we were home sick.

Heading Home.

Funny this is, while going the encouragement to keep driving for a 1000km/day, was the excitement to see Leh Ladhak. While returning the encouragement was to get home as early as possible.
