Day 2

early morning we left for keylong at 7:00

bike ride to keylong via sissu was one of the best thing i have ever experienced

riding bike in lahual district at such high altitude is great fun but its too diffucult and at the starting i was just wondering how people ride to leh and ladakh . but after some time i adjusted myself.

Day 4

in morng we went to manikaran sahib

the sikh gurudwara which famous for its hotsprings . people have holy bath there in hotsprings

we started our trek to kherganga by 2:00

for beginers kheerganga is bit difficult trek to deal with. it wasnt that hard for me and my few mates but for the few ones it was more than worst .

By 5:30 we reached our heights and started our hunt for better camps and waited for the rest one mates .

camping at kheerganga was amazing

no lights in camps you to deal with bonfire and insects and much more issues
