Blueness of this water, rawness of this place and mesmerizing mountains - For the first time I saw pictures of this place and immediately I dreamt of myself being there. The wanderer in me was not able to wait any further and I started exploring more about this incredible place called - Ladakh!
Something so barren yet so beautiful on the top of the Himalayas has been a mystery to many of us. Pictures of huge landscape make it even more attractive. However, for this trip of the lifetime, one needs to be prepared mentally and physically.
Mentally I was already exploring ladakh and physically I never doubted myself as riding is in my blood. One thing my father passed on to me was his passion to ride motorcycle. So I was all geared up to start this journey.
1) Riding on Historic Passes:
With rocky terrain and numerous blind curves, road to Pangong Tso is the most challenging route I have ever rode on. With low level of oxygen, breathing is a bit difficult and one can feel little dizzy while riding. But once you reach the top, it’s a proud moment for any rider to cross the highest motorable road pass in the world. And descend will lead you to one of the beautiful lakes you have ever seen – The Pangong Lake.
