Have you ever experienced thrill, danger, amazement, beautiful nature, to summarize all these things in one phrase 'hell and heaven' in a single journey; we (me and my partner) had. We witnessed deserts, snow as well as rain; rode on death defying roads, had few falls from bike, but finished the journey with full of adventurous memories. You can witness all these things when you are on bike ride to Ladakh.
I have been there on bike ride two years ago with four of my friends, but this time I planned this ride to experience the thrill of solo ride with my one and only companion, my pillion rider, that is my wife. There are other reasons too behind our couple ride, like no other couples were ready for this adventure, I don't like group rides, and many more. So, I started planning for this to be memorable journey 3-4 months in advance. Planning included making bike and ourselves ready for tough journey (weather as well as health). Bike preparation included through check up and servicing of bike and purchasing spare accessories. We prepared ourselves with regular exercises to boost body as well as mental stamina. We were ready months in advance with all the plans.
Plan was to first parcel bike to Jammu from Mumbai before we reach Jammu. If bike require any servicing we can do it in the evening. Next day travel to Srinagar, spend a day for sightseeing. After that two day travel to Leh via Kargil. Later explore areas of Ladakh and return to Chandigarh via Manali route. And start return journey from Chandigarh to Mumbai in train.
