Fantastic! This brings back memories of my family's trip to Leh last August. We did Delhi-Srinagar-Leh-Manali-Delhi with 4 on-board. In an Alto K10. That was one great adventure, that we all cherish. People still refuse to believe me, at which point I have to show them this pic. (Many thanks to HVK sir for his help! )

Kudos to you and your friend for the determination to do this with your M7700!

We had a similar 97 model till 2012. Living in kolkata we had a PB registered M800 and that was the vehicle I learnt to drive in. Feels really good to see an incredibly well maintained 800. Sweet alloys and a re-built engine I understand. Great job

Wonderful travelogue; I have a wedding to attend in Srinagar in August and this thread gives me some confidence to take my Nano there.

I wanted to replace my 2007 SX4(67000Kms on Odo) before I take up my trip from Hyderabad to Leh but this post has changed my mind. Kudos for the drive.

Great job. You have given me confidence to take my 2004 model M800 there.
The pictures are awesome!

Did you get a chance to take the 7700 towards Nubra Valley?

Brilliant travelogue and lovely photos ambarshante. You did a great job. I am so much inspired by your journey that I am planning to do Leh trip in my Swift. I am planning a Kolkata -Delhi-Leh trip for a long time. The more I go through the threads, my confidence level increases many folds. I hope finally when I do such trip, I will get enough support and help from you guys.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Great write up and you are truly an inspiration.

Maruti 800 was always a great puller owing to light weight and was a favorite among the hill station taxi crowd. Great to see how well you have maintained the car.
