Just beauty all around and nice pics there Rupinder. Having reached Tanglang la and beyond, I am curious to know whether you had any problem in getting the bike to start @ such an high altitude with relatively low levels of oxygen. Great journey Rupinder and it made my memory fresh about the guy "Gaurav Jani" who made it solo. Keep the pics coming.

Nice pics. This is dream trip for every bhpian. Hope, i will do it in future. This place is too far from south india. Like minded bhpians can make convoy so that this dream can be fulfilled.

Thanks Suman, and i thought he was on a bike ...oh my bad . Now his trip had definitely instigated me to try that stretch once. As i had seen many bikers go to such high altitudes but not that many 4 wheelers.

You took those words from my mind dude... exactly my thought, a dream trip for every bhpian.... sigh...
