Day 2

I started for Ladakh ' my actual journey and here comes the expenses.'

So Srinagar is 290 kms uphill journey with shooting stones and lil bumpy roads and high winds

Till 80 kms the road was high class straight a lil curvy but being a civil engineer the best thing came in front of me

Yes the house boat is love i still miss that ... #Beautiful #Peaceful

I took rest talked about how is life here . Next day was Eid and I thought it will be great if i would leave early as Zojila was waiting for me

The first ever pass of my life

The night was rainy and I not able to sleep as I was nervous seeing the videos of the terrain already and then this rain.

Day 4

Oh my dear God , I am scared and I am really scared. But early morning came to be sunny.

Started early morning near about 6:45 am & the first sight of Sonmarg was beautiful. Made some friends on the roads who were also riding towards Leh that day. My next stop was Kargil.

So green and beautiful , So Apart from few Patches of bumpy roads doing Zojila we managed to reach Zero Point , my first ever high pass. After having a cup of coffee at the Zero Point and the yummiest Maggie we Started for Drass - kargil

Riding at a speed of 40 - 45 kmph enjoying the valley we reached Drass The Second world's coldest inhabited place. The lowest temperature recorded in Drass ever was -60°C on January 9, 1995, according to a BRO signboard.

Payed Homage to the Martyr of kargil and reached Kargil. in Kargil we Stayed Cho ko In a Beautiful place with hot water and friendly people.

The next morning we started for leh city. Beautiful roads with two high passes waiting for Namik la Fotu la the day was quite adventurous.

A Refreshing ginger Tea and a maggie and one Paratha we again moved forward for Nubra for the night stay.

The night was full of fun with Bonfire and music and Masti.

We rode from Shyok the valley of death with the high mountains
