Trip planning :Manali-Leh-Kang Yatse-Kargil-Jammu-Delhi road trip
And so, finally we are hitting the tarmac after a number of hitches. Earlier we were just planning to do a rod trip on car, but now we made life difficult for ourselves . And are doing the full monty by bikes. To top it all we are also hiking once we reach Leh.
So there’s the bike gear+camera gear+ hike gear+ 70 kgs us .
I have no idea how our poor physical bodies will take up this entire drill. We have been told to run for an at least an hour each day and then head to the gym. I have been focussing on the running part but it still looks a distant dream.
The only solace would be the scenery that would be with us for the next eighteen odd days . The trip is supposed to be epic . Once in a lifetime trip. That’s what me is thinking : once in a lifetime !!
Anyways we will be joined by 12 other folks during the trek and bike is something I will be doing with Abhishek. Together we will do the entire trip at one go.
As you will notice this picture was taken a few years back. Please note while i independently trekked my way up Abhishek used a stick and my support.
Here’s the plan should anyone be interested in committing the same disaster. The rest we shall share once we are back. Always open to meet fellow travellers on the way .
