Motorcycle ride to Leh, Ladakh - 2 of 5

Following beautiful photo-blog has been contributed by my son Mukul Wardhan.
यह सुंदर फ़ोटो-ब्लॉग मेरे पुत्र 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 started off to a journey of approx 3400 km from Delhi. 
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 - Khardung La- 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.
