Road to Leh

Every good trip comes with vigorous planning but the unforgettable ones happen when all those carefully laid out plans fall flat on the road. So I set out on a road trip to Leh, to feel the wind in my hair, or more accurately through my helmet and the warmth of the sun lingering behind the snowcapped mountains. Yes, nature makes poets of us all, admittedly not good ones. Like all great plans, at the start of the trip the whole town promised to come along and by the time the plan took shape, the whole town comprised of four guys and two girls. The girls were flying in for the trip, one of them from the states and the other from Dubai. Now, since I was the one who suggested we make the trip, the responsibility of planning was firmly vested with me. Thankfully, the most rigorous parts of the planning involved some frantic googling at the most. Although, I must admit that it is very hard to stay focused. More than once I landed up at sites titled “why Bangkok?!” and “Kim Khardasian on vacation!!” with no idea as to how I got there. So here are some irrevocable rules you should abide by to get to Leh. Rule one, get a good phone with 4G and close your eyes when the bill comes, because you will need to browse a lot and there is just no way around it. The budget can be trimmed down to 40,000 INR for each person, inclusive of petrol, travel, stay and food. The best way to get there is to take a flight to Delhi and to then hire bikes or cars to get to Leh. In case you are very particular about riding your own bike, you can opt to cargo your bike by flight. A hired Innova for the trip will cost around Rs. 8750 per person taxi rates are very high in Ladakh. There is no shortage of the places to visit in Leh and Ladakh. A land of high passes, cold desert, barren mountains, ancient monasteries, and stunning landscapes. It attracts travelers from all over the world. It is a Land of Mystery and intrigue which never ceases to amaze travelers.
