This was a very special motorcycle trip personally covering around 2000 Kms. 

Route taken - Delhi - Amritsar - Jammu - Srinagar - Drass -  Kargil - Leh - Khardung La - Pangong Tso - Sarchu - Keylong - Manali - Delhi.
 
Highlights :
 

1. Visit to the Wagah Border.

2. Horse ride to Gulmarg

3. Quick stop at Drass (Shot into prominence for enemy incursions into Jammu and Kashmir is also the second coldest inhabited place on earth).

4. Khardung La(5359 Meters above sea level).

5. Leh town.

6. Pangong Tso - Pristine blue lake.

7. Crossing Rothang pass with zero visibility.

8. The whole riding experience at Ladakh. 

 
 
Total chaos traveling with a group of friends and we survived mostly on Noodles and Lemon Tea. I ended up losing 6 Kgs in 17 days. 
 
Mode of Transport - 3 Motorcycles and 2 - 4 Wheeler's.
 
Important things to carry :- Diamox | Thermals | Dry fruits.
