So we Packed our bags & the Engines were Ready to GO. We Started from Jammu around 3 PM & reached Doda at 8 Pm. We were lucky to find out CRPF guest house to stay for the night.
On day 1 the target was to reach Kishtwar. It was super sunny and it being the first day, I found it pretty hard to cycle. I kept going after taking a lot of breaks. Oh! I started off by making a wrong turn in the morning, which meant 8km extra of uphill cycling. All in a days work, I reached Kishtwar by the end of the day. The roads are pretty good, well tarred mostly.Day 1 - Doda to Kishtwar.Was supposed to be 68km but I did an extra 20km due to the wrong turn.The route is a mix of uphill and downhills till Thatri, mostly uphill. Thatri to Drabshala is 6km of quite intense uphills and the last 8km is a very intense climb.
