Tips for planning your motorcyle trip to Leh

Planning:

Day 13-14 – Beautiful Jispa – Back to Manali

We decided to take the day off and enjoy this beautiful village. Jispa is a very small village with couple of hotels and tents. Green trees, a river and snow filled mountain tops. We decided to head to the river.

Day 12 – Ice bucket challenge! – Pang – Jispa

We woke up next day to freezing cold at Pang. One of the guys went to take a dump. After he was done, he noticed that water in the cans were frozen. Ice bucket challenge accepted 🙂 I leave the rest to your imagination.

Day 11 – Adios Leh! – Leh – Pang

I spent next day walking around in Leh and tried Thukpa(Tibetan cuisine). Food is usually good in Leh but prices are generally high. Meanwhile I managed to find an optician and got new spectacles made.

Day 9-10 – Khardung la – Shanti Stupa

There was a marathon from Khardungla to Leh so the the roads were closed for first half. I could barely walk there, wonder how people managed to run. Leh also has less oxygen as per my experience. It is nearly 55 km from Leh. Half of the road is good and rest is gravel.
