Hi Brother ROPAR IS MY HOME TOWN I have reletives who has his manufecturing unit for concrete mixers next to railway crossing before you leave Ropar towards Manali.Had I known your plans I would have made arrangements with them for your LUNCH,SNACKS,TEA, whatever suited the time of your reaching ROPAR. ROPAR is a nice little town and has SWARAJ MAZDA vehicle factory and thermal power station. I have been to this home town for almost all our summer vacations when I was a kid ie.50 years ago as and when we grew this trip was reduced, now I go only once in a year to collect the rentals of our ancesstral property which is a house which is more then 80 years old and our tenents are also third generation. This house was built by my grand father.

So all these roads, stunts with off-roading but had only 600lts of fuel. Man, that's a wonderful FE

Btw, what's the total KM driven from home-home on this trip?

U guyz are born with petrol instead of blood. Its a lifetime experience, envy on u

Photographs are Amazing and wallpaper quality!

I felt its more of a mature and safe driving which helped you in this terrain (Havent read any major problems during the 8000KMs drive through the most challenging ways).

I heard Gypsies are guzzlers, 12-13KMPL average is good for this work horse.

Default between jaipur & udaipur

Had I known earlier you were passing through, would have invited you to have lunch, dinner etc... we are 40 km off the NH 79 highway, halfway between udaipur & jaipur..

perhaps when you are next making the trip on a bullet.. you can have a look at the place below..

Shahpura Bagh, Heritage Home, Rajasthan

Day-11 Leh to Pangong Tso lake


Route: Leh-Karu-Shakti-Tangstse-Lukung-Spangmik
Night halt: Pangong Tso Resort, Spangmik

Anybody visiting Leh and not seeing Pangong Tso Lake is big lifetime mistake, what a beautiful lake no words to describe the beauty. Pangong can be done in one day trip but staying next to lake and seeing sun set and sun rise a beautiful sight.
To reach Pangong we need to cross Chang La- third highest motorable road and it's called Mighty Chang La no doubt it's mighty. We had crossed Kardung La and Takalanga La both higer roads than Chang La and those La's where easy to climb but Chang La was most difficult to climb due to lack of oxygen, I could not shift to 2nd gear for full climb when you shift from 1st to 2nd even in 40 Km speed the vehicle will almost stop had to drive slowly in 1st gear had a option of using 4WD but it was tar road. Not only my vehicle I heard every vehicles has difficulty to climb Chang La. Army guys welcomed us with great hospitality with free tea and biscuits, tea was amazing drank two times.
Route was scenic till Pangong lake next hurdle was Pagal Nala heard lot about destructive stream had washed away many vehicles but when encountered not even one single drop of water was flowing little bit of disappointment for not using 4WD.
Reached Pangong Lake and big film unit was shooting movie near lake named three idiot and all big stars where shooting but we are not interested in them but place where they are shooting. From Lukung to Spangmik is about 7 KM and the road goes next to lake you feel like capturing everything.


Photos will speak the journey....
