The riding bug bit me when I used to ride with my friends, but little I knew back then that riding would become such a passion. It all started with few amateur rides in the Ghats of Chhattisgarh when I realized that this is what I want to do in life “set myself free on […]
The road back took another hour journey. Around 3 PM, i reached Hanuman temple and decided to skip Dharmshala en route. Since there was a lack of time and also i had to reach Dhordo later. Upon reaching this place, the monk here explained me about the legendary story of this place. Hanuman temple is […]
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.
