Hi,
Really appreciate that. (As has been made clear in later posts). Else it just becomes a case of clean conscience rather than clean environment.

Elsewhere in the world, the rule is 'leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but memories'.

High Altitude sickness - Nah! That is for those who fly into Leh, they need a day's rest to adapt to the sudden ascent, not us, we have already been to higher places before reaching Leh, we are set to go!

Hotel bookings - Nah! Peak season in Ladakh is not like being in Ooty or Shimla during the holidays. The place is pleasantly populated by a large floating population, but every second building seems to be a guest house, run by friendly owners who are either "PWD" engineers or just families. We do not make advance bookings, we walk into the selected hotel (we have already done our research ahead) and haggle, so we get good rates which I find are often 50% or less compared with agent or advance booking rates

Auto town - what a relief for the cars, at least this is one town where you have service centres for Maruti, M&M, Tata & Toyota, a place for them to rejuvenate. Lots of workshops with migrant mechanics who can overhaul an engine in 1 day flat!

Permits - all journeys ahead are into restricted areas, and the DC's Office is the place to shop for permits

ATMs & Internet - we come back to the modern world, Leh has 3 ATMS - SBI, HDFC and PNB (and also J&K Bank and Axis?) and internet cafes

Mobile connectivity - for the first half hour after arrival, the entire team is seen huddling in various corners conversing with family, friends and updating their FB status!
No doubt you get so much relief reaching leh. Feels like half done.


strangely, HVK and myself first met face to face in Leh at Druk

Dear Shipnil, You are always to join us.Send me a pm and I will send you my contacts and we can be in touch. No need to be on FB. But this time we used a FB group and it was so effective in planning and discussions prior to the trip and also bonded all team very well even before we met each other.
We still dont know which part of Himalayas we will be going. But will go for sure in 2012.

Dear //M, Thanks for adding in FB. You are also welcome to join the team. It will be pleasure to have as many travellers and bhpians with us next time.

My complaint: Jeep Captain is too miserly on narration of every frame of photo.

I boast of 'the tough' but some stretches of roads make me shuddering

Same time agree if there are highways, the 'adventure' is gone, the pristine-ness is gone and the place will become a heap of rubbish...

Dear Sunney, The narration and experiences enroute is already done by Lalu & HVK. I am just following them with more amateur pics from a different angle.

Also I wasn't there for this Kaza to Leh sector. Only my Bolero & camera was there. Bcos I was busy doing another Kaza-Cochin-Kargil Expedition which is mentioned earlier.
Hence no narration. Narration will continue from Kargil onwards after I join back the IPHE team.

50% is quite a big number. Does it mean that the prices are highly inflated on the internet? What is the average price for a nights stay during this trip? Also, when you move in such a big convoy, did you face a parking problem at the hotel anytime during this expedition?

If FB is that useful/effective, then I'll join that site but maybe I'll restrict myself to only the 2012 Himalayan Expedition .
