The Final Part:


Road condition from Hanle to Tso Moriri is again Mixed. Hanle to Mahe is Good, the last 12 km till Karzok is non existent and the rest of the road condition is mixed.

The First Look of Tso Moriri

Somewhere near Puga we found this Salt Valley




The Drive from Sumdo to Leh Manali Highway is one grueling drive, hence no Pictures.


The Best Drive of the Leh Manali Highway - Driving through Moore Plains (2x Speed)

The Road from Pang till Jispa was in a horrible state. This is the longest stretch of bad road we have driven in this tour

Reaching Rohtang Top




The day ends at Manali and now there are no Las and Passes to cross.


Next Day We started quite late from Manali and the last bit of enjoyment was driving beside Beas

That is all that I have to share. The Last thing that is left from my end is a Panorama from Rohtang Top.

Great write up Sir. Wonderful photos as well.

I've been to Leh twice in the last two years. But I just can't muster the courage to take my 8 years old Civic there.

Even though the Etios in your convoy managed just fine And on my trips there too(on bike), I've come back thinking this is do-able with a bit of luck . But still I'm skeptic .

LaluKS Sir had a thread going about exploring the possibility of taking a Civic to Leh, the general consensus was that it's better not to take the Civic there at all. So that was discouraging as well.

It has been exactly 10 months since we had set sail for our Ladakh Trip back in August 2015 i.e.- 19th day of August 2015. Today, I received a magazine named SPLASH (Hobbies & Passions Edition) from The Calcutta Swimming Club (of which I am a member) and where I had given a small interview about our Ladakh Roadtrip. It's good to see the Interview been published as an Article in their esteemed magazine. Good to see the mention of Team-BHP and HVK in the article which definitely brings a sense of pride to the respective communities.

Sharing a copy of the article :
