Motorcycle ride to Ladakh - 1 of 5

This beautiful photo-blog has been contributed by my son Mukul Wardhan.
यह सुंदर फ़ोटो-ब्लॉग मेरे बेटे मुकुल वर्धन की प्रस्तुती है । 

                                                                              *****
For us bikers it is a dream to kick start the bike & go on a long ride in to the Himalayas. Three of us did that and started off from Delhi on a journey of over 3400 km.
* Mukul Wardhan on Royal Enfield Classic 500,
* Avnish Shukla on Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 & 
* Dev Badda on Royal Enfield Classic 350.
The route was :
Delhi - Pathankot - Jammu - Srinagar - Pahalgam - Drass - Kargil-  Mulbek - Leh.
> Leh - Khardungla - Diskit - Panamik - Hunder - Leh.
> Leh - Pang - Sarchu - Tendi - Jispa - Keylong -  Rohtang - Manali - Chandigarh - Delhi.
Photos have been taken on Nikon DSLR. Hope you enjoy the scenery as much as we did.
