The journey was good. Please book flight tickets at least 3-4 months prior the tour to get cheapest flight. I purchased the tickets for just 2200 and the tickets rose to 17000 within one month of the tour date. Yes. do not forget to click the natural terrain below and be quick to keep cameras in your bag before getting down at Leh as the Airport is governed by the Indian army and photography is a strictly prohibited.

Started journey from world class airport of new Delhi with all kind of facilities, shops. Air India flight was good. Reached Leh in 2 hours. You will fly above the mountains of Dras. Kargil and Leh. So you can enjoy view from air itself. Don't forget to carry camera or camcorder. Leh Airport is also good. Good if you compare airports situated at high altitude.

Ladakh is a very beautiful province in India which is less explored and is still pure and full of beauty. People will enjoy this place like no other. People who love peace, serenity, calmness, it's an amazing place and one should see the view when the flight lands and touches the ground.

It all started from 2012, when two of our friends been to Leh and we were stunned and bit jealous (I wont mind accepting it now :P), as they have been to the place (LEH) we could only dream of. But as you know college blood is warm and so we all agreed to a pact of visiting Leh in next summers i.e 2013.

So after waiting for almost a year the real time came and as you know we being student it was not easy for us to manage the budget and also the riding part (as we are experienced in riding in hilly areas like Musoorie or uphill till Rohtang Pass only). But now I was all up for the trip with around 20 k in my pocket.

Almost all the friends backed out at the real time (obviously due to there personal problems), but I was on a stage where there was no going back. So me along with one of my friend Manu Tyagi (who hardly had any experience regarding bike rides),launched for Manali from Delhi in bus (there was no biking till this point). We stayed at Manali for a day, visited all the rental points, checked-out every single bike and finally decided to choose Bajaj Pulsar 150 (though a weirdo choice :P).
So finally kicked off our journey from Manali at 12:30 pm. The weather was too perfect, best we could have thought of. Road to Rohtang was all muddy (as most of the times), but I managed to ride through it safely. After Rohtang it was all broken road till Keylong,we also came across some harsh winds on our way to Keylong and lacked visibility at times, but MANU managed to ride through it (I was amazed, as he hardly had any riding skills or experience). We decided staying back at Keylong for the night.

Day 2: We started off at 5:30 am and this was the day we came across the main obstacles with low temperature being the first ;) and broken roads, natural falls, flowing on the road and many more. But whenever you cross one obstacle and the inner piece you get after that, only the true rider can feel it. We continued riding and managed to reach Sarchu by 12:30 pm. All our shoes, socks were wet, so we wrapped poly-bags around them and took 1 hr rest and decided to continue. But the journey got tiring now, as reaching PAANG by 3:45 was too long but we did it. This was among the varied mountain ranges we came across, the shades kept changing and we simply couldn't believe it. It was astonishing and the beauty just caught us. We were all tired our back paining because we hardly had any equipment (just our biker gloves), though low temperature was never our concern but riding in wet shoes and socks was :P. We thought of spending night at PAANG only, but something just kept us going. So we decided to go further as much as we can. The road ahead proved our decision to be right, it was like sleeping on a soft mattress and the cloud formation was like the one we used to draw in our fancy sceneries. Though you have already seen it in some wallpaper or through snaps, but seeing it with bare eyes like real view was something, I donít have words to explain. I got so excited looking at it that I decided to pose for it without putting on my jacket (which didn't proved to be a good decision, but who the hell cared that time). So after riding some more time we decided to spend night just some 30 km before Tanglang la, at the road side camp. The dinner turned out to be the reason for me not feeling well next morning.

DAY 3: So. I wasn't well or rather fit for riding the next morning, but we cant afford loosing a day. So Manu choose to ride the next morning and there was no stopping for us, though we took 2-3 small breaks in between and reached Upasi had magi and then continued riding again, with me back on handle. Reached LEH somewhere around 2 and the ultimate peace you get after reaching that place is something you call happiness.

In the end all I wanna say, its something that I managed to do in my college life, so if I and many people like me can do it, even you can. Just quit saying NO.

The flight was Air India from New Delhi to Leh. It was from T3 terminal. When we were flying over Leh the view from the air was awesome. It was so worth flying. At the Leh airport the weather was chill, temperature was around 8 degree and the wind was chilling. The service on the flight was good. The crew members of the Air India follow their tradition of service. The flight experience was comfortable. Takeoff and landing was comfortable.
