Heaven on Earth Revisited - Solo
Important Notice: While on the trip out of goodwill I had shared my pics with some of fellow travelers. It might well be possible that you might see my pictures that are shown here, posted somewhere else on the web too. It's a big bad world and it was very stupid of me to share my pics without proper attribution (watermarks) done, but if you do see such pictures please report it to me.
As the title suggests and continuing from my last post I have successfully completed my solo trip to Heaven on Earth. Coming days I'll be putting down day-wise trip details and also my experiences. Tried capturing, the beauties of the places I visited, to best of my capabilities. Don't know if I did justice to it :)
Above picture is one of the photographs from the famous K-Top, world's highest motorable road. This is the second time my bike and I have been there. This time it was so special. Details I'll post in due time.
I covered approximately 3000kms with the following route covered.
Delhi - Chandigarh - Amritsar - Wagah Border - Jalianwala Bag - Golden Temple - Udhampur (Jammu) - Srinagar - Manigram - Sonmarg - Drass - Kargil - Batalik - Darchik - Leh - Khardungla - Tso moriri - Korzok - Tsokar - Sarchu - Rohtang la - Manali - Chandigarh - Delhi
Initial plan that I had planned was not this. I had included Pangong Tso, Nubra Valley but eventually I changed my plan on the fly and ended up doing the above route.
Total kms: approx 3000kms
Total days: 16 Days
Bike: Comet GT250

Found a cool website (Thanks to Akhil) on which I can plot the route which I took. Route is custom drawn and is not exact but still gives the idea of the route.
