Motorcycle ride to Ladakh - 5 of 5

Following 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 started off 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 - Karnama -  Mulbek - Leh.
> Leh - Khardungla - Diskit - Panamik - Hunder - Leh.
> Leh - Pang - Sarchu - Tandi - Jispa - Keylong -  Rohtang - Manali - Chandigarh - Delhi.
Journey was covered in 12 days in July 12. Photos have been taken on Nikon DSLR.
Hope you enjoy the scenery as much as we did.

Landslide near Zozi La Pass resulted in a traffic jam


Jawans have started clearing the landslide debries


Traffic jam can be seen on snake like road all over the mountain!

Now you can kick start

Tough roads require tough bikes & tough bikers!


Melting Ice spoiled the road & vehicular pollution spoiled the ice walls - Zozi La
