Day - 4 Continued

After filling our belly to the brim and struggling to move like a python just done with gulping down a big dear we reluctantly turned on the ignition for our onward journey. Target was to drive leisurely to Sonamarg and call it a day. The clock was hitting around 3 PM when we tanked up the beast and moved out of the city.

Immediately greeted with great roads

We found a small stream running parallel to the road and thought of taking the beast to its banks.

After spending good 15 minutes in minor 'Jaal Krida' we were back on the highway again.

With no option in sight, I decided to do a trucker's act and contribute generously to the fertility of the hilly region.

All the above photographs were taken when I came back triumphant from behind the big rock. I even tried to be little philosophical.

After that it became too dark for any kind of photography. To top it, the roads became nonexistent. Except this bad boy in front of us, we never found anything great to click. And believe me, this guy was a real bad boy and acted as our bodyguard for quite some time.

My look in response to his question perhaps said it all. Poor chap stopped then and there with his PR activity and vanished from our presence quicker than Sanjeev Nanda washed his BMW.

As if Mr. Murphy was waiting to smile on me. No sooner I said, the roads have improved, the J&K PWD chaps took humiliation in my statement and wanted to show me, who is the boss.

I immediately accepted my mistake for underestimating the PWD chaps and the roads improved a bit. But as punishment I was asked to negotiate some most disciplined creatures.

We finally got something that looked like serving tea but the shop owner was completely disinterested in having milk in the tea that he serves. I even asked if he knows something called Milk. Surprising enough he knows.
Excellent Travelogue. It made all the more interesting with your witty comments spaced in between your cool narration and awesome pictures.

Thanks for sharing.

Hi BC,

Thanks for a detailed travelogue.

Yours is a little different as you have detailed the roads traveled making readers feel travelling through the same Roads.
For me the Journey is more important than the destination and so far I have seen the same.

Looking forward to rest of it.

Day - 4 Continued

After 15 minutes of bio + photography break we moved ahead. We are almost there near Sonamarg.

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0877.jpg

Just about then we saw few bravehearts braving it out so that we can enjoy the drive in paradise and write about it too. Thought to spend few minutes of ours with these brave sons of the soil to show our gratitude.

Soon we entered Sonamarg.

After the welcome bridge we entered the small hamlet of Sonamarg within no time.

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0903.jpg

Opted for the very first hotel from Srinagar side. The Hotel Sonamarg Glacier is a gem of a place to stay. At Rs 1700/- per night, it is value for your money. To add to it, the balcony and the scene it offers is worth dying for.

Well dug up roads and unruly traffic rule the roost with crazy drivers throwing themselves from every possible direction including the sky. If that is not enough, the cattle class of such cities add insult to an already aggravated injury.
Congratulations for the great trip and thanks for the wonderful travelogue cum photolog.

I wanted to bring this to your notice that to go to Sardarsahar from kishangarh, one doesn't have to go through jaipur. The route is kishangarh-sujangarh-ratangarh-sardarsahar. This road is in great condition and is 100 kms shorter than the route you took. Hope this helps others going on this route.

Day - 5

Coming back after a 3 day break during Ganapati festive week. In fact I was out for a more than 1000 Km outing with wife.

So this day was the day when we were going to reach Leh. The destination of last 5 days drive. For next 3 days Leh was going to be our base camp for our visits to near by lakes and passes.

Started from Sonamarg early. Before it could hit 5:30 AM we were out of the Hotel parking lot.

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0767.jpg

Thankfully the gates were open. Thanks to Modi and his visit to Leh the day before, the gates were opening around 4 AM for last 3 days. Soon we were seen heading towards the mighty ZojiLa. The initial rise was easy with moderately good road.

We saw few Jawans doing their routine morning drill

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0789.jpg

Early morning the mountains were even looking beautiful. We could see little bit greenery still there but were aware that the green would give way for the barren and brown vistas

Day - 5 Continued

It looks like a jinx with my Travelogue as well. No sooner I catch some speed to complete it, hindrances come visit me from nowhere. The latest being my trip to Tokyo again. Got settled down and now got some time finally to proceed with the log.

But before we move forward, my heartfelt prayers are for those marooned by the devastating flood in the valley. I am sure many, those had planned the trip around Sep Mid must have a hard time seeing their plans getting washed away and quite literally at that. I know that feeling of dejection seeing your plans going south but then, that is life. In the mean time we can only pray for the safety of those in that region and hope everything turns normal soon.

The initial ride to Zojila was not that troublesome. In fact till one crosses Baltal, things look quite normal

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0812.jpg
Roads were normal till now

Day - 5 Continued

After a break of 5 minutes we started to ascend the mighty Zojila. Thankfully it was neither muddy or slushy. It was heavily dusty though.

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0851.jpg

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0852.jpg

Here is a video of 20 minutes covering major part of the ascend. Since the size was close to 3.5 GB got to trim it using a free software. Hence you will see some watermark in between. I know it is irritating but can't help



Here is another one



Finally after grinding in the dust for close to 30 minutes, we managed to reach the ZojiLa top. And what a relief for both, the beast and us

Time was now for some hot cup of tea. And we were not disappointed with our search. Just after we descended from ZojiLa we had this small tea stall. We were not hungry by then so there was no breakfast on the plans. It was a break for some tea only.

The tea vendor was preparing some Chicken for lunch. Looked yummy but we weren't waiting for lunch. We have some distance to cover before we reach Leh. While Tea was getting ready, I took a stroll to capture some greenery

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0899.jpg

Roads were dusty and from bad to worse till we reach the ZojiLa army base. I never knew there is a small memorial there as well.

We spent 10 minutes at the war memorial. Had a chit-chat with couple of soldiers. We were invited for a cup of tea but had to deny the invite as we had a long distance to cover.

In the mean time the greenery completely vanished to give us vistas full of brown, dark brown and at time black

The roads deteriorated again. In fact the tar vanished completely. It was more like driving on a barren land with boulders coming out from every direction.

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0972.jpg
It started with this

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0975.jpg
And ended up with this

Were not sure then if we should stop by this or not

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_0992.jpg

Roads turned to worse and there were places where it was difficult to differentiate between the road and the rest

Roads improved a bit after some time but still remained narrow

Pune to Pune via Ladakh - The White Beast conquers everything in between-dsc_1025.jpg
Finally reached Drass at around 9:30 AM

Took some customary photographs. Spent some time on some cold drinks. Yes you read it correct. It was dry and hot and some Fanta was not at all bad an idea then.

The road conditions after Drass improved drastically. In fact at times it was like a runway

Excellent travelogue with superb narration and awesome pictures, thanks for sharing
I came across your travelogue while browsing on my phone and could not stop till I finished reading it completely
Really feels like one is traveling with you on this journey.

I thought you had a plan to drive with other folks who were interested, didn't that work out ?
And yes you were lucky to escape the fury of floods.
