Super travelogue and pictures! Made me nostalgic of my Leh trip in 2009.

Can you share feedback about the Thar? Was the performance sufficient? How were the comfort levels?

Excellent Travelogue with awesome pictures. Cudos to both of you for enduring the journey to heaven and back with a smile.
After going through your TL it seems Ladakh is calling me again. 2015 and 2016; both drives to Ladakh had its different set fun and adventures. Ladakh is a place which I know if I visit again will give me another set of fun and adventure. Your travelogue is setting the fire back on!
It was nice sharing my experiences of Ladakh over a cup of tea at Topchachi.

As Samba mentioned in his comment "The first trip after getting married is to Ladakh and that too in a Thar! Things cant get better!" really nothing can bet that!

Rated 5*

Excellent thread Navtej. Rated the absolutely deserved five stars. Well detailed and definitely in my checklist for reference for my trip (if it ever happens, that is).

I couldn't help but notice that you travelled in August and it took seven months for the TL to roll out. Well, the length and details in the thread gives some reason for the delay. You definitely need a lot of time to compose and organise so much of information and those wonderful snaps. Great going.

Very crisp narration with some beautiful pictures. That was one great drive you both had. Excellent, you have set yourself a bar which only you will maintain. Keep it up brother.

Need some more feedback on Thar, how did it performed, how was the comfort, any issues you had? Please whenever you get time, let us know. Thank you.

Having the most well maintained Ikon, being the only couple to participate in the T4 ride, and now, doing a roadtrip to Ladakh, for your honeymoon, and that too, in a Thar ! You never fail to amaze me.

Wonderful travel times. This is my dream too to drive to Ladakh with my wife and Thar (Well I need to get married first) . Thar makes an excellent vehicle for cross country trips like this because of its versatility and the only drawback i feel per se is how much you can fit or how many can you fit. A compromise o quantity of luggage or number of occupants, more so when its long journeys.
As far as that new 4WD Sensor you have told caused a niggle, I have changed it 3 times under warranty during my first year and still I am not sure when it is going to conk off again. Its really distracting especially when it starts to flicker. I infact drove for a couple of weeks with that sensor disconnected when awaiting spares.
Lovely pictures, the place is awesome. Hoping to make it soon and write down like this. Happy motoring.

Nice travelogue! Great pictures and well written. Whenever I read such travelogues, it makes me to pack my bags and travel to new places. Hope one day I could do Ladakh trip in my Thar.

Kudos and Keep Driving!
