Wonderfully narrated travelogue, Hardik.

Very captivating indeed. Request you to put up the details of the drive from Manali to Noida also.

One of the best travelogues i have come across. The pictures were great. They give a real life feel. Me and my colleagues enjoyed each and every picture. A colleague even wanted to take a printout of one of them and frame it. You guys, i am sure, will never forget this experience in your life. Wishing you, your gang and the beast all the very best and plenty of miles..

Is it possible for you to share the car expenses incurred by you?
Also, could you share the hotel expenses?

Thanking you in advance,

Girish Mahajan
Thank you so much for such kind words! By profession I do write, but codes! but by passion I do want to end up writing few books down the line.

The expense and other details were skipped by me as I have mentioned in the first post which I quote here 'So, to begin with this is more of a log with respect to the experience rather than a technical one as the specifics and details would be put up by the mate of mine 'zahoor23'in his log! *Which, he says is in the pipeline*'

We can hope he puts it out of the pipeline ASAP as this was waiting around too long and finally got pushed! If not, I will update the thread in a couple of days with the specifics.

Very well written, 6 months to complete, shows in the quality. Beautiful Photographs too! Some get bitten by the travel bug, some chase the travel bug! Way to Go!
The six month taken has many reasons, one being laziness! However, I'm glad that you could enjoy the material put up!

The current situation in Kashmir is really worrisome, especially knowing that their dependency on tourism is so high. I hope better sense prevails, both in the minds of the people and the government and the situation becomes normal.

Thanks for sharing man. Sitting at office with multiple pivot tables all around me, your travelogue got me some refreshment.
I am more than happy to help you with this little refreshment! Kashmir indeed is in a great soup, which is really sad. It indeed is jannat and one conversation from the trip which I can recall 'saala, itna khoobsurat hai, kaun nahi cheen na chaega' (It's so beautiful, who wouldn't want to steal it!)

I am happy that I could make monotonous office life a little colorful and Thanks for such amazing words, someone wanting frame a photo taken by me is the highest of compliments I can receive!

Hats to you the gang and most important thing of the trip, the XUV 5OO.

If you don't mind, can you put down a mini review on how the XUV 5OO performed during the whole trip?

Amazing is the word for everything in your travelog. Be it the narration, the pictures or your spirit. The travelog was so captivating that read it in one sitting. Keep up the good work.
As asked above can you please elaborate on the strengths and weaknesses of XUV500 in such journeys.

Kaapi indeed is nectar of gods! I wish I could convert my machine coffee to the pressed/ filter one! I'm happy that my log could help you do that
