After a very bad weather a day before, we had somehow taken shelter at Pang. The dorms were available at Rs. 250 per bed. The ride for the day would be from Pang to Leh. Finally we did reach and stayed at Leh Castle, Old Road, Leh.

Day 6 was the start of another leg, the interesting landscapes from Manali to Leh via the broken National Highway. It was a distance of approximately 150 kms but the highlight of the day would be camping beside Bhaga river at the end.
Day 4 had its own tales. It was mostly wasted waiting for Vikas, a rider whom I met at Delhi and was supposed to leave on the same day. It was a 600 km ride throughout the night and till afternoon of the next day, no less strenuous than the other days.
