HVK: Behror, Alwar, Rajasthan TO Panipat, Haryana Distance: 209.11 Km Time: 5 hrs 52 min

Look at this link

For some strange reason MapMyIndia does not try following Jhajjar-Rohtak-Panipat road which would be better.

200 kms via Gurgaon, Delhi and Sonipat to Panipat. 45 minutes to Gurgaon, 2.30 hrs to Panipat from there, but only in the late hours or early morning. So that makes the Delhi route preferable if you intend to cross Delhi late at night or early in the morning since you will be at least 2 hours faster compared to the Rohtak route.

I am processing photos will start by evening posting photos and write up.

offcourse we have volvo towed photos. volvo belongs to filmy personality and famous stars.

Is that perticular film star Mr. Amir Khan? I read in the papers that he was shooting in that region. Its just a wild guess, I may be wrong.

from behror it to took me 3 hrs to reach panipat can be done in 2.30 hr mine was gypsy.
Rewari, Gajhaar, rohtak has good bypass no problem atall, I was in early morning(4 a.m) my experience its safe in night drive.
Take rewari loop exit(last) one from GQ not the first one if coming from behror that will lead to town.
Rohtak by-pass is clearly marked, in by-pass road there is big round about take right turn and the board sign is there not before round about.
before entering panipat there is canal and rail crossing take left route go till last there is police chowki there take right turn from there go straight you get flyover(delhi-chandigarh road).

HVK

Rewari - Jhajjar - Rohtak - Panipat is a breeze these days due to new ByPasses and good roads and serves a good alternate route during daytime if you dont want to enter Delhi.

cheers

Day-4&5 Behror to Manali


Route: Behror, Rewaari, Rohtak, Panipat, Ambala, Banur, Roopnagar(Roopar), Kiratpur Sahib, Bilaspur, Mandi, Kullu and Manali
Fuel Stops: BP at Ambala
Night Stay: Hotel laxmi, Manali


Got up late and had minor problem with carburetor of Vijay's Gypsy adjusted it and ready to move on. We decided to take Rewaari route which indeed was good idea cruised till panipat had lunch at some dhaba before karnal. After lunch looked at my rear tyre loosing air pressure luckily puncture shop attached to dhaba took about 10 min to get repair. Delhi-Chandigarh was full of traffic in late afternoon but reached Ambala in evening fueled my Gypsy had a good chat with owner of bunk who happy to see tourist are coming from Bangalore.
Before Toll gate there is direction for Banur route took right turn and the road was excellent in no time we reached Roopar from here the traffic start we where struck for hours supposed to reach Manali by 11 pm. Trucks specially cement truck drive like Go-karting blindly taking turns, took some rest at dahaba and decided that we will carry on. Manali route in night is fun to drive with no traffic after bilaspur reached early morning at 4 am.
Every vehicle had to pay green tax before entering Manali, I had mistake here officer asked whether it's Department vehicle I should have told yes but we are not here to break rules so paid the money and moved on.
We had full day and night to take rest before moving to Leh. Next to our hotel we had authorized maruti center so checked our vehicles. While checking our vehicles we analyzed many vehicles coming from rothang pass had issue with brakes, damaged bumpers etc. good business for service center.

Great Going Sha and Vijay. Nice narration and photography too.

Sha, there is a photograph enthusiast chap who normally accompanies you guys on OTRs right? IIRC, his name is Srinivas. Did he also join you?

Because of him only it's getting delayed in posting , he has taken around 4500 snaps and huge number of videos. His name is Rajesh not Srinivas.

800 odd kms covered on the first day and 900 some kms on the second! Wow! Was it solo or two drivers pushing the Gypsy in tandem?

Day-6 Manali to Sarchu


Route: Manali, Rothang Pass, Koskar, Tandi, Keylong, Jispa, Dercha, Baralacha Pass, Sarchu
Fuel stops: Only jerry can stop.
Night Stay: Gol Drop camp, Sarchu


It's time to move on for what we have planned for long time, last 5 days of driving was boring so it's time to enjoy our drive and photography.
We left at 5 am to avoid traffic jam at Rothang pass. Spent few min at rothang pass before crowd arrives. Never trust Tandi fuel bunk always no stock its better to fuel at manali and carry jerry can.




Photos will speak the journey......
