As to your questions:
1. Bare minimum spares including a clutch wire, race/ brake wire, spark plug, chain lube and the puncture repair kit.

2. While travelling to Uttarakhand, no. Because UK has fuel depots at nearly all places though quality may be compromised at remote places like Joshimath/ Sonprayag, etc. While traveling to Ladakh region, yes. In two 2L coke bottles and a 5L gallon.
Thanks alot mate for replying. It really feels nice to get connected with like minded travel enthusiasts like you and a big thanks goes to Team BHP, which has made this possible. I would surely share the char dham trip experience. Your photographs from the Satopanth trek are great and they speak volumes about the adventure and thrill which you must have experienced during trekking. Please share more of them. Eager to read more on your travelling experiences. Wish you safe and pleasant driving experience all through. Keep posting.

GODSPEED

I have to admit, when I started reading this log, I got a feeling as if you are another wannabe traveler. But boy was I wrong. I am glad and thankful to you for sharing such an awesome experience. A very vivid tlog that kept me glued till the end. The story just got elevated to a different level once you started to trek on foot. You have the true blue wanderlust.

Thnx Lijesh. Bangalore and Manali sounds cool...quiet daring !! Unfortunately, other then the North and the North East, I haven't ridden to anywhere much in India. But once the Himalayan belt is done to heart's content, the next thing in the bucket list is down south.

As to the fear of the unknown, can anything be more apt then the lines quoted by barcalad from Tagore's?

Cya
Suraj

Simply awesome!!! The freezing dip in the Satopanth Lake must have been quite rejuvenating. As usual it's nice to see the good old maggi coming to the rescue of solitude seekers in the unknown territories.

Hey SJD, you are a brave soul mate, a class apart. You will not believ I read your post last month and was not sure what should I say at such a brave attempt made by you. There have been people who go for trekking in groups but you are just awesome mate. How did you manage to stay all night in a dark deserted place with no light and bed and spend entire night even after the rat scare. Hats off to you. Your travelogue is a class apart, from all the travelogue that I have read so far, also the pictures are simply superb. Keep this spirit brother. Enjoy your life and give people like us who are stuck in high pressure jobs such nice travelogue to cheer ourselves up.
