As everybody was in hurry since car’s group was running out of oxygen cylinder, they all were feeling headache due to low oxygen level. Prashant forgets his bike key on the seat of the car.
Me and Prashant came out of the car when this happened. We got busy in clicking pictures. Immediately after clicking pictures our car’s group has moved ahead.
It took 10 minutes to realize Prashant about misplacing his bike keys. We looked at all the places of khardungla top whichever place we walked through. But we didn’t find any luck. We have checked all places but not the car. So, I immediately asked guys, may be Prashant forgets his keys in car. Dhirender, took the initiative and took his bike to catch our car’s group at the speed of light. Haha!
He came back with the double speed of light to khardungla top. He said, he found the keys in the car. His whole transition to catch car’s group and come back to us, felt like speed of light because, me and Prashant both were feeling headache.
We immediately started off to downhill. Downhill from khardungla pass is much dangerous than uphill. We saw one side of the road was covered with the wall of snow. It was all good sunny day so, at this time snow melts a lot. Roads gets muddy all around and make visitors to move slowly.
During downhill, we also saw border roads organization was building the roads at the run time. I mean, they have stopped the both side traffic and rolling over the road. It took around 15minutes to build run time road.
As we are moving downhill we three of us start feeling okay. we were keep moving and keep moving towards the destination. This whole journey has very beautiful mountains view that no other route will offer to you. This now looks more sensible to me after visiting this route.
Our next meetup was at Diskit monastery. Which comes under Nubra valley.
