It took us about 4 hours from Manali to cross Rohtang – we stopped at Khoksar for lunch – steaming rajma chawal & kadi. It did not feel any warmer than Rohtang – the locals told us that it had been cloudy & windy all day.

From Khoksar to Sissu the road was good in patches – the roadwork here seems to be in continuous flux! Stopped at Tandi for fuel and then on to Keylong past another water crossing – this one pretty tough because of the melting snow in the late afternoon. We decided to stay at Jispa – no particular reason except that the name sounded nicer (to me) than Keylong

Jispa - the name sounds so musical - I had expected a pretty river valley, but what I found was a starkly beautiful, craggy, cold valley – the wind was biting cold by now. This is when it all started to go wrong.

What a refreshing travelogue! And that too, from a distinguished member of our Hyd T-BHP group. Dil khush ho gaya! Hats off to both you and Amit for the spirit and to you again, for writing such a beautiful travelogue.

Hi amip, your travelogue though still to complete is very well written.many of us are glued to it.In our hurry to go through the travelogue many it seems have failed to note that you are the lady whi is narrating and your partner amit was riding.

Hope the fracture is healing well and soon you would be fine.Take care and keep the travelogue going.....

Oh why does the travelogue has to stop here.

Not that I am looking forward to hearing about the fracture, as I know how painfull it can be in those snowy cold places without any proper medical infrastructure. Its just that I am also intrigued to know what went wrong.
