Awesome pics there Yogesh , nice write-up too. Thats one journey me and my friends here were and are still thinking and planning to do. Will surely do it sometime... in 4 wheelers though... Enjoyed every bit of it while reading ...

Been to Rothang Pass and loved the place, but after looking at your pics, i'll have to go further and this i have decided...

Ladakh indeed is heaven on earth. I had gone there with 4 other school buddies in 2001.
Took a bus till Manali and planned to go to Tabo but as the Kunzum pass was closed for buses, we looked at a map and thought 'lets try ladakh'...

and we were then on the next bus to Keylong...3 days of roasting in the sun and drinking chang and then on to Leh via bara lach a, tang lang la and of course, Pang City....

Next time I'd love to do the trip by driving there myself....

great pics guys.....! brings back memories of that beautiful land...

The place looks too good to be true. Are some pics digitally enhanced ?? They just look too perfect!

Thinking of making a similar trip but was wondering where would I get bikes from? Anywhere in Delhi where ppl lease out bikes?
I know these gora's make such trips all the time, so where do they get the bikes from??!

thanks zaphod and triggercool

srikantans04 Some of the pics were sharpened and contrast adjusted after resizing. As for renting motorcycles, you can get them for rent from Delhi, Manali and even in Leh. For more details regarding rent procedure and costs involved etc. check out this link http://www.bcmtouring.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=157

Had a fantastic ride, 18days 3865kms of solo riding over some of the roughest terrain known to mankind. This was the route that I took:


Day1: Delhi Chandigargh Manali


Day2: Manali Keylong Darcha Sarchu


Day3: Sarchu Pang Upshi Leh


Day4: Leh Thiksey Leh


Day5: Leh Karu Chang La Tangste Lukung Spangmik Lukung (Pangong Tso)


Day6: Lukung Tangste Chang La Karu Leh


Day7: Leh Upshi Chumathang Tso Moriri Korzok


Day8: Korzok Tso Moriri Korzok


Day9: Korzok Chumathang Upshi Leh


Day10: Leh Lamayuru Kargil


Day11: Kargil Sanko Parakachik Rangdum (Suru Valley)


Day12: Rangdum Penzi La Padum (Zanskar Valley)


Day13: Padum (Zanskar Valley)


Day14: Padum Penzi La Rangdum


Day15: Rangdum Sanko Kargil Drass


Day16: Drass Zoji La Sonamarg Srinagar


Day17: Srinagar Jammu Pathankot


Day18: Pathankot Phagwada Ropar Chandigarh Ambala Delhi


Clocking 3865kms over some of the roughest terrain in the world and still my bike did what she does best, powered her way through each and every thing. She gave quite a good overall mileage of 42 kms per liter of petrol and the best mileage that I got was an amazing 48.36kilometers to a liter!!! Not at all bad for a four and half year old Bajaj Pulsar 180 Classic, which has clocked roughly 50k kms over the years!

Here are some photos of the ride, detail trip log will come soon...
