Moutain weather-an hour after snowfall, splendid sunlight and an amazing tailwind carried us to drass. God bless tailwinds, and how we love them especially if they come towards the end of a ride.

Mighty Kardung-la concurred!!!!!
After 10 long days of cycling in Himalayas for over a distance of 650kms through amazing and beautiful mountains, heavenly landscapes and passing 5 highest mountain passes Rothang(13058ft), Baralachala(15900ft), Lachungla(16616ft), Tanglangla(17582ft) and Kardung-la(18380ft) facing sun, rain, snow, wind, sand storm, land slides managed to reach Kardung-la one of the highest roads in the world. I knew it would be tough but it was tougher, climate was not in favor of us as it was too sunny during days, rained heavily some day and the temperature dropped below zero degrees other day resulting in snow fall and land slides, even in such harsh conditions we managed to cycle trough the mighty Himalayas and achieved the lifetime dream of cycling the Manali-Leh-Kardung-la. Mountains🗻 taught us many things, to stay strong to achieve your dream in what ever the situation is, mountains made everyone equal in her lap who ever it is by eating, sleeping and living equally, made us live with minimum resources we have and we felt like we were back to basics of life with just food, water and shelter. This expedition has made me a more confident and strong person mentally and physically and a better human being too to live equally with everyone. I specially thank my mom for supporting me in this adventure. Thank my fellow cyclists who were part of this expedition and also all my friends who wished me the best on my adventure.

Day 8: we need to climb one of the highest pass tanglangla at above 5328mts, but it was a gradual climb which had good and empty roads which made us feel easy and reached within afternoon. Its the time to enjoy the downhill for next 100kms. It was an absolute pleasure and relif riding the downhill after passing 4 highest mountain passes. Reached lato by evening stayed at a homestay surrounded by greeaniry and volcanic mountains. Experienced the milkey way galaxy at night which was breathtaking.

Day 9: And finally the day has come we were just 60km away from Leh, had a lazy start as it was more of downhill or plain till Leh. The view was absolute joy for eyes along the way, visited Thikse monastery and then reached Leh by evening. Finally after nine long days starting from Manali only one thing was left in our minds is to conquer the mighty kardungla.... The biggest day In this expedition and of course our life too, kept our mind and body strong and crashed for the night at Leh to face the next biggest day.

Day 5: Manali-LEH-kardungla
we were at zing zing bar for that night and and the next day snow fall began since early morning and the bikers who were passing Baralachala or who where going towards the pass where returning back due to heavy snowfall and land slides on the way the pass that we should pass for the day. Our mind pulled us back not to take risk, but a a cyclist from adventure group who were doing expedition gave us confidence to cycle in that harsh weather and helped us to carry our luggage in their backup vehicle. We 3 started cycling by 8:30am in snow fall and I must say it was one of the amazing experience we had during this expedition. It was like traveling in heaven and the view was mesmerizing, had fun play with snow balls on the way and we managed the cross suraj taal and reach Baralachala at 4850m above msl after few hour starting from zing zing bar with numb hands and legs in the freezing temperature. We reached Sarchu by evening with clear blue sky which gave some relief for the next day.
Day 6: After a night in sarchu we started the next day by 8am, it was the biggest day we had to face gata loops which has 21 loops of 9kms for elevation of over 2000ft, took almost 2 Hours to climb gata loops and then reached Nakeela pass by noon at an elevation of 15500ft and reached wiskhey nala and stayed there for the night.
Day 7: It was a day we had very less climb, but need to face bad roads downhill, but it was super fun trail ride for almost 25kms between huge Mountains and clear water stream along the road with clear sky. Later we reached more planes one the best part of the expedition which had 40km plane roads with beautiful landscape and the roads were awesome where we get to pickup speed and enjoy the ride, but for last 10kms we faced speady head winds which made us hard to peddle and the dust storm was hell. Finally by evening we reached debring.

Day 3: After a lovely evening at Sissu, started the ride next morning to Jispa, road was amazing and beautiful we totally enjoyed the ride and reached Jispa within evening so just pushed a bit more to reach Darcha and stayed for the night
Day 4: It started started raining at Darcha since night and continued till morning, with the dilemma of weather to cycle on the day or not we packed ourselves with rain jackets and started cycling in slight drizzle. Cycled slowly in rain till zing zing bar reached by evening it was a chilling evening at zing zing bar and temperature dropped and started snow fall since mid night making it tougher for next day.

We were supposed to start yesterday but, Anand Thakar ji who was supposed to join us who was riding from Rajasthan for over 600km had a major break down 20km before Manali and he had to cancel his plan. Me and Dushyant Johar started today and will be reaching marhi for today which is 35km uphill from Manali. Will keep updated when ever I get connectivity as I may lose network from tomorrow.

#kutchdiaries That man in white, taking his pet across the sea of salt on this lonely road is a sight that may only be limited to this last generation. Their sons, and their sons have a motorcycle, or a car or have already left these places. I had already stopped when I saw them approach from a long distance and waited and smiled at them. I knew it was only a matter of a few years or maybe a decade. I was witnessing something that will cease to exist. That man in white, with his camel.

#hampidiaries Last month I was in Hampi. I was to reach by 6pm, that's when the last boat ferried across, so I could catch it to cross over to the "shanti" side. I reached at 6.05 and all the mild anxiety that I'd been feeling on my way from Hospet to Hampi drowned with the sun into the rocky horizon. I was calm again at having lost the race against time. It is a long long way to the other side by road and costly too.. and for 5 mins? Travel isn't always a fairy tale and as the anxiety had waved goodbye, hello said disappointment. Then there are times like they say - the last gasp of the extinguishing flame.. or in this case, the setting sun. I sat down not letting it all go and the sky turned dramatic pink only for a minute. Ah! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #traveldairies #trekking  #sunshine #camping  #campingtrip #campingout  #aov #travelgram #lonelyplanetindia #roadtrip #solotravel #backpackerlife #solotravelindia

Got out of my bunk bed while the dawn was only beggining to tear the sky. With the first sight of the dew sprinkled grass, I knew I'd found my another bed for the next few yours. I sat on the grass carpet by the woodhouse, saw the deep purple horizon rip open to crimson and cyan. The grass grew softer, the wind slowed down and the warmth climbed on my face. It was a new day. ----------------------------

A branch led off the road to this secret Pizzeria that locals around Manali loved. I had no clue about the place other than coming across this little sign on the road that said sports bar and cafe pointing towards a small trail. What a discocery it turned out to be..family run and only open on Sundays. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #traveldairies #trekking  #sunshine #camping  #campingtrip #campingout  #aov #travelgram #lonelyplanetindia #instahimachal #himachaldiaries #backpackerlife #backpackingindia
