At 7am, started my bike for Bumla!
When you start the journey for bumla you will gradually feel the decline in temperature and your fingers getting freezed.
I took a halt at a army bunker as my fingers & feet got jammed. Approx 10mins i was not able to unhook my helmet since i was numb.
Salute to the Army mens to guard the territory at temp of 1degree. They are our IronMan!
Army warned me because a day back one solo traveller died due to temp and his bike got slipped onto the road.
But i was confident and stuborn to mark my destination.
Pro tip: Dont be Over confident!
The road was not good and it was way to slippery as the snow got melted and freezed on the road!
After riding for 1hr, you will see a Y junction where you can take good halt to fuel yourself with maggie, chai, pakora.
Your ILP is checked there. There were no roads only off roading.
During this route you will see many lakes and beautiful snow covered hills/mountains.
It was tough but a worth riding in this route.
Pro tip: Carry an extra pair of gloves so that your fingers dont get numb.
Reaching Bumla is one of the India’s toughest route at the height of 15,700ft. At last, i reached my destination.
And saw many travellers on the car but i was the single solo biker at that point of time.
People were applauding my skill and confidence for this route because you get many challenges like bike failure or tyre bursting, skiddy road with no help around you except for the Army if only they sees you.
Man trust me you will feel amazed to see this area. Free chai and biscuits from Army to the people and chatting with many travellers from Chandigarh, Mumbai, Kerela, chennai etc.
I was the only Dilli ka launda there.
After looking around in Bumla the Indo-Tibet border(China occupied), i went back to tawang town.
