Did you get a chance to enjoy the Army hospitality ?
Yes we had a tea there with an army official. He was really a nice guy.

Yes akshay , biking was real fun, we descended down from tanglangla, 2 times from khardungla, 2 times from changla.
As we 2 were travelling, while descending down one used to ride and the other driver car behind.
At some places while cycling during descending we reached speeds upto 60kmpl..

Hi Aman,

Nice Pics.

Just a thought.. But wouldnt taking your car in the water make it more prone to Rusting??

A friend had taken his bike on the sea shore in Mumbai and it started giving rusting problems.

P-Tso is a Saltwater lake.

Thanks dear, but I don't care that much about my ride, because if I care that much I won't be able to enjoy the pleasure of 4x4.
BTW anti-rust treatment is done underbody,(hope it can safe guard from salty water).

Talking about the last picture , did you know about the depth of that water bed because doing this at such an high altitude and a place very less accessible to help is a great feat in itself.

@Bapu - No offenses meant but thinking about rusting and stuff is the last thing on the mind when you want to do such an exciting adventure. Also , you live only once so do whatever you want to do while you're walking the earth ( purely my philosophy )

@ Aman - More pictures please.
