Hey,

Brilliant Photographs and a Brilliant place. The best part about this place is, that Even when there are so many travelogues to Leh, and each new travelogue has something new to Show up due to the different people who put them up.

Kudos

OT: What camera was used here? Are the first three photos post processed?

Lovely pictures and a hectic schedule. Doing something equally hectic next week
Question: How as Samba/Masar/Udhapur road quality? Just asked the same from Tanveer at http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...ml#post1942997 (My Mughal Road Rally)

thanks Sudev sir, that is one wonderful bypass and a very scenic road, just a km little bad stretch, but will be nothing for you.

BTW one suggestion, instead of going upto Samba, you can take a right turn at Dayala Chak, around 40 Km after pathankot and you by pass a hell lot of mess, This route meets in the middle of samba-Udhampur road, this right turn is hidden in the mess of shops, and you might feel like going wrong way, but the moment you pass the 50 meter bad part, rest all is smooth
