Five friends (3 from Mumbai and 2 from Nagpur) planned a ride which became a memorable part of their life.

I am presenting here memorable moments from our journey in movie (4 parts) form.

Part - I

Three of us started our journey from Mumbai to Ambala Cantt in train. We parcelled our bike to Ambala Cantt in advance. On reaching there and getting fresh in a hotel already booked by our partners who came from Nagpur, we started our RIDE. First day stay at Pathankot, second day stay at Srinagar and sightseeing in Srinagar on the next day. Then ride from Srinagar to Kargil via Zoji La.
