Solo cycling trip manali to Leh ,ladakh And Khardungla pass 2018 - mountains calling
Hello everyone, this is yuvraj singh harsana a bike commuter recently started going for long distances I love and cherish diversity inside and outside me, that's how it started so It was month of June 2018 just like everybody I was also into my iPhone spending hours on travel websites to get a great deal or package after detailed checking for everything what they were offering was a good for fun lover people but my approach was little different perhaps entirely different so I stumbled on a blog about cycling manali to leh this was exactly I wanted to do so I just started listing down all the things I should take along with me after I was all set I had 3 bags weigh 15 kg my weight 65 my cycle weight 18 kg. almost 100 kg ready to travel 500km in 7 days Day 1 I got down from the bus at manali bus stand around 6 in morning did not sleep last night assembled all the bags wore my helmet had 2 bananas and all set for the journey I met a group of Buddhist pilgrims they were heading towards leh , sun was dropping fireballs I lost my cycling gloves so my hands got burn it was my first reality cheack, around 2 in noon I reached marhi amazing place weather took a sudden shift it started raining so I decided to halt at marhi I stayed there in army camp they did not give me permission to take a single photo but it was fun being with them. stayed at keylong i wanted to start early so quickly i had parathas in breakfast and wrapped up a slice of sandwich and headed up for rohtang pass reached in 3 hours it was amazing downhill from rohtang for some miles and worst downhill road too just before koskar I stopped for a snack break and resumed till sissu near sissu I had lunch I met mohan a guy with guitar after the lunch I couldn’t resist I sung a song till I went offbeat after a little fun time I cud not stop my peddling till keylong I had to make a call this was the only place where i could get mobile network , I reached keylonaround 6 pm I stayed in reasonable hotel newly opened they made an amazing butter paneer masala and I did not even take off my shoes I just slept on bed with surya namashkar position. stayed at lower zing zing bar I woke up early had my paratha and black tea and headed for jispa the landscape was so amazing I was totally into mountains nice sunny day added an extra charm to it as the road comes to the level of river I started off road cycling to the beautiful river side I sat there for an hour just to gaze the immortal mountains topped with white shiny ice I got my water bottle filled with natural spring and halted at government school at jispa I met some amazing kids the perfect incentive for me from my trip as I moved ahead i saw out of nowhere there were two 3 year old twins were on the road I cud not stop myself I had to hold them both even though they seemed heavier than me this time I had no chocolates bananas was the only alternative to offer them after crossing jispa and patsio I reached at lower zing zing baar there was a dhaba I took a black tea from the unty she was so lovely she invited me for the dinner and arranged a place for me to spend a night it was freezing cold in night stayed at sarchu In morning I heard a voice from outside of my tent bhaiya bhaiya untie's daughter she came to woke me up and offered me a black tea after having the Maggie and bread in breakfast it was the photo time when I was all set to go seema unty came to and said sir please come next time for month as family not as a customer It was getting little heavy for me I said of course and started peddling , baralacha pass was waiting for me I enjoyed it most and reached in the giant sarchu one of the best landscape one this planet I reached there around 2 pm I spend my 3 hours just to take some pictures and talking to army person and yes of course off road cycling it was literally freezing cold and stormy evening in sarchu temperature was minus 15 i had already found a home stay brother raju facilitated me razai after razai for making me warm. stayed at wisky nala As I entered in the jammu and kashmire game has changed so the rules but the player was the same the landscape became so beautiful and barren no vegetation and water springs this time call from nakeela pass through the ghata loops 21 loops up hill windy day sun was on full throttle and I was having an extra bottle of water this time when I crossed 21 loops still I had to cycle 5 km to nakeela pass this was the only time I had to give an extra ordinary effort to make it around 2 pm I reached at wisky nala after a small downhill from nakeela pass I met brajesh uncle his home stay was amazing best dinner I have ever had in my life I had to kiss his magical hands besides my tent paul a guy from Canada was coming from leh to manali solo cycling, brajesh uncle called him over tea we sat talked about sociology and other family stuffs. stayed at dibiring i was just opening my eyes in morning saw outside my tent snow-falling I sat outside the tent with cup of black tea in my hand for a while after a picture time with poul and brajesh uncle, we started our journey In opposite directions this time lachungla pass was calling me I made lachungla around 12 noon and crossed pang and reached the greatest of all time the one and only more plains it was the cloudy weather so I just sat there for an hour made some videos hoping for sun to come out and magic happened just for a while so I was cycling on one of the highest 45 km plain seeing the widest and mind blowing landscapes of the earth, towards the end of the more plain I stopped at the dibiring found a home stay there was uncle rosha made Maggie for me I had an exhaustive day and amazing sleep too. stayed at leh I woke up late around 10 am I saw snow falling again I was so excited about the tangangla pass I made tangangla pass around 3 pm initially I was planning to stay at upsi but then something happened I had this idea to reach leh in same day I calculated it was possible only when i can do peddling phenomenally fast and continuously, i crossed karu I crossed lato I crossed hemis and I reached leh late night 11.30 pm I rod 160 km in single day including the world second highest motor-able pass arguably (because chine made world's second highest recently)It was the beauty of nature and people who lives there that kept me craving to explore some of worlds best landscapes in the world. after reaching leh i met a guy name neema (meaning sun) who helped me to get a hotel room solely it was impossible for me because in summers vacation in India leh became the hottest tourist spot, before closing my eyes I had this feeling do I really belong in this game I just pondered my wander lust increased I was feeling high and I decided tomorrow is KHARDUNGLA Pass....
