Sir, what physiotheraphy?

Seems like J&K is Maruti's forte. I managed to spot only one Chevy beat, One i10 and Sumos mostly. otherwise, its all Wagon R's and Altos ruling the roads. I saw one Dzire. Did you guys check was it a Dzire tour or the new Dzire which has under "Butt" physiotheraphy?

Some of the greenery for sure will put Bavaria to shame! Taking the liberty of doing a small comparison.

Yes, I have the complete GPS tracks of the full circuit. Will upload once TL is complete. But we will have a personal sitting in our own neighbourhood soon!

Well, I do not listen to Pancham - in fact, I shut off music totally in the hills.
I also drive fast - too fast, some say - so I end up way ahead, which is good for Lalu because I then stop & he gets more opportunities to get his photos! In all the roads you see, I drove mostly in third gear, slipping into second - and rarely first - only in the steep hairpin climbs or descents.

Also a larger fort for Tata - Sumos & trucks.

Thanks! Good idea "neighborhood meet"

Want to quiz you on how to do this circuit on local buses or share-jeeps. But lets meet only after I have studied the KML for 2-3 days.

Again, a wonderful TL by you and Laluks.

We indians and public nuisance, go hand in hand! Atleast in most cases, though not all Indians falls into this category. When will we stop this "Dik chik . Dik chik" loud music in public places and realise that it will be a headache to others!

Yes, those are tourist bungalows run by the Bhaderwah Development Authority. Jai is open even during winter but will be covered with snow.
