Hello, everyone after 2 days I m going to leh ladak from Delhi to leh and returning is also same via Manali ........ can anyone suggest what necessary items I should carry with myself and what is the weather condition there.
please suggest at it's earliest.
Hi Ankit , Good to know u r going to leh by bike. if u r travling with any group then read their instructions carefully u ll get complete details. if u r going in your friends group then i ll suggest u ti carry rain coat , tracksuit , warm innerwears and your all accesories. and along with this i ll suggest u to carry bike'd front and rear tube , cluth wire , gear wire , break wire , 2 ltr engine oil and the necessory part for your bike.
Medicines - medicines for headache, fever, stomach ache, cold and cough syrup should necessarily be on your list.
Sunscreen lotion, Lip Balm - The cold dry winds of Ladakh will make your lips and nostrills dry ( sometimes painful). Glucose and Food items like biscuit , energy bars etc - As we reach high altitudes , the appetite seems to get reduced. So these things will be required for instant energy.
Things like extra power banks, camera batteries, a small torch I have put down a quick piece on a checklist of things. Check and replace if necessary: Clutch and Accelerator cable, If any nuts, bolts, screws or connections are loose, ensure that they are all tightened and secured correctly.
Brake pads, if worn out, or nearing there, require replacement. Carrying a new spare set would be advisable.
Tyres are important aspects that need to be inspected.
Ensure that the fluids and lubrication are up-to-the-mark. Carrying spare Lube Can is necessary as you’ll be covering 500+kms and chain will run dry rather quickly in the Himalayan region.
Ensure that the lights, horn and indicators, are all in good working conditions. Hazard light, if a feature on your bike, may be a great help.
Ensure that you check tyre pressure every 800-1000kms depending on the tyre type
The four important documents: Original Driving license and PUC along with bike papers, valid insurance and registration.
Your OEM toolkit, along with small scotch tape, small pen size torch for emergency, foot pump and puncture repair kit.
A spare bike key, spare bungee cords, spare fuse, extra chain lock, spare clutch and accelerator cable, chain lube, if tube tyre then one spare tube, engine oil to top up and a spare headlight bulb. Happy Travelling :)
