Hanging bridge_Go pro click

Barren land, high passes, battling altitude sickness, crossing freezing streams, riding along fierce rivers and snow clad mountains, calm lakes, scary rains, meeting Maratha battalion at Kargil, hearing their stories, eating delicious parathas in Punjab, trying local Ladakhi food, saluting each and every army men passing by, acknowledging every passing rider, happy tears at Khardung La pass (world’s highest motor able road in the world), a visit to hall of fame in Leh, driving through crazy fog at Rohtang Pass at 3 am, crossing Baralacha pass in dark, our ride through Tso Kar lake, the word 'landslide' and the hatred associated with it, eating Maggi at Pang, attending a Ladakhi Birthday party and so much more. It was one of the best journeys of life. Someone has rightly said – “Travelling, it leaves you speechless and turns you into story teller.”
