Day 2 - Amritsar to Ramban (330 Kms approx.)
Next Day morning around 8:00 am, I have started from Amritsar and reached Ramban around 7:30pm evening. I must say It was a tiring ride, as the hills and turns started after Pathankot and Udhampur. The ride was going nice and suddenly one small problem came at Lakhanpur Toll, my bikes clutch bar (Yoke) got broken. So I have looked around for the local mechanic but they couldn’t help coz the spare part was not available at their shop. So I started searching for the Bajaj Service center and fortunately I got that center just after 2 kms from the Toll. It took 1 hour to fix the issue. In total my 1.5 hour got wasted and I got delayed from my schedule.
After this I had my Lunch around 2:00pm and continued my journey. I have crossed Udhampur hills and reached the Chenani-Nashri Tunnel (9.2 kms long) around 5:30pm, which was opened this year in April’17.
After crossing this tunnel the road condition was really bad, which lead to delay. I could only managed to ride till Ramban, as the Sunset happened around 6:00pm. It was in the dark I rode my bike till Ramban in bad condition road. I searched for a cheap hotel and checked into it. I was feeling very exhausted that day, so I rested for some time and had my dinner around 9:00pm in the local dhaba and slept around 10:30pm.
