My dream, a journey of a lifetime, solo road trip from Mumbai - Ladakh -Mumbai spanning 7000KM
Day 14 August20,2016:- Rumtse-Leh Finally left for leh....
Day 13 August19, 2016 sarchu-RumtseGot up early in the morning and found two guys from the Ktm group were taking oxygen. I used to take diamox every morning and evening and never placed this problem. After having breakfast we all left around 10:30 am . Beautiful scenes were all around me. It was difficult to ride as there was a confusing whether to see this scenes or to concentrate on the ride. The landscape were mesmerizing those beauty has no words to describe. For these many days the photos which i was seeing on google were now visible in front of me. After some time we came across gata loops. Which is a 21 hairpin bend. After gata loops anirudhs machine broke down,the Ktm guys tried a lot to help. Then transferred some luggage to my machine and made ankita to sit on my machine. Somehow we managed to cover some kilometers after which his machine had some problem so we waited for some truck around 90 minutes found one and loaded the machine into it . Everyone except anirudh left for leh. As he was to get down at pang and get his machine fixed as the truck was going till pang. By the time we could reach tanglang la world’s third highest motorable road the ktm giys had moved ahead and it was took dark with no soul around the scenic route started looking scary now and my machine was not able to cross 40kmph mark due to low oxygen at higher altitude. Just clicked the board which mentioned the tanglang la altitude. Temperaturewas freezing,after few hours of dark ride as it was still 80km for leh and it was 9pm by now found the ktm guys had stopped somewhere near rumtse and decided to stay there and ride in the morning.
