    This ride is all about Lassi, Butter and food all the time, we never had this much butter in four days in our entire life

    July 2014 - Just after some 15 days of our Mana ride I was searching for next destination on the net, suddenly I saw someone from my friend list posted a snow picture of Sach Pass on FB, where he was riding with one of his friend, I saw it once and decided to go there and next I moment called to Ashish (Fellow rider)- Hey Ashish good news, we are going to Sach Pass, when ever our office & pocket will allow, lets meet up Dhaba this Sunday to discuss.

    Till the ride time all the discussion about Sach Pass was going on between us, meanwhile we met our that friend also who posted that picture on FB of Sach Pass.

    15 September 2014 – I called up Ashish, Hey Ashish so we are the only two for the ride, I am planning to apply leaves in advance, Ashish – One of his friend is also interested to come along with us and it is going to be his first ride on hills, I was like , I am creating a whatsapp group for all discussion and will add suspected rider also, Me – Ok.
    After few hours we five was on the whats app group and discussion was going on about stuff, route & permits.
    Meanwhile I applied for the leaves and got approved after few days, Ashish don’t need to apply for the leaves, as now he is his own boss and going to be approve others leave soon

    Just before one week of our ride, we both desperately searching for route, weather, stuff to carry, prepare the bike and all that planning and couldn't concentrate on our work. Till now we are the only three riders for the ride. We asked some people about route and conditions for Sach, But every one from everywhere said maximum complete the ride in September and even if you want to go don’t do it after 15th October, I saw a log on some other website of Sach Pass also, they were also suggesting to not go there in October.
    Two days before the ride while checking the weather of all our route, I got a persons number who runs a business of camping in Sach Pass in summers and placed in Dal Housie, I called him and asked about the situation in Sach, he said seasons first snow fall has already started & Sach is closed and you can maximum go till Bhairgarh (Some 60-70kms before Sach), we asked some people on FB also, they suggested not to do this in October, but Ashish & Me decided that we will cruise till where ever possible and be safe always. As you guys know if you had planned a ride 3-4 months before, how difficult it is to postpone/cancel, even at that time heavy tension was going on India-Pak border so we had to keep an eye there also, who knows what ever can happen between India & Pak.

    A night before the ride I called up @Ashish Sahay & asked about whether how many of his friend are joining us for ride, he said we are total number of four rider going to Sach Pass. So now Me (Hero Hunk), Ashish (Yamaha Fazer), Vijay (Honda Unicorn) and Rohit (Bajaj Pulsar 150) are final for the ride.

    We planned different-2 route for heading & returning, for heading we selected a route where two Dams (Bhakra Nangle Dam & Shah Nehar Barrage lake Dam) were coming in-route, none of us never gone through the wall of Dam, so we decided to reach Dal Housie first day though this route.

    Day 1 – The leaving time for the ride was 4AM sharp, meeting point (Punjabi Bagh Fly Over) was near to my house so I reached on time and got to know that Ashish & Rohit is still waiting for Vijay in South Delhi (I really cant bare people those who does not value time ), I waited for an hour while desperately waiting to start the ride, finally some how they reached to meeting point an hour late and we started riding to our first hault Karnal (150kms away), after completed some 10 kms we got to know that Ashish’s Fazer rear tyre is flat, we was all like WTH, then we searched for puncture wala as we was in the Delhi till that time, got the puncture repaired and we again got late another 30 minutes, we took a long breath and started for the ride, properly lid Delhi roads was looking beautiful, everything becomes beautiful if you are going for a ride
    We decided that me (Vinay) will lead, second is Rohit, Vijay will be on third and Ashish will sweep, Soon we was on Panipat toll fly over and boy o boy that butter smooth road, we was feeling the immense grip, properly lid road, not a single inch bump on the entire almost 4-5 kms long flyover. In this regard NH 1 is good all the way, as we decided we crossed Karnal in some 90 minutes and stopped for breakfast on a dhaba and we welcomed with some 5-6 small puppies under our chairs, we got out stomach full with butter Paratha's and left from dhaba, it feels very nice when some 4-5 bikers fully geared, riding back to back in discipline, giving proper turn signals, roaring between cars & trucks, we keep checking the GPS for route and at some 10 AM we reached at the point where we had to check the route to skip the Chandigarh city to save time from city traffic, took few pictures and started riding back, but we missed that point where we had to skip the main Chandigarh city and the reason was that Ashish & Vijay found a beautiful lady in Hundai I20 at 110-120kmph, Damm it took 2 hour for us to come out from Chandigarh city traffic, Just a question here whether it is illegal to switch on headlight in day in Chandigarh?

    Now the temperature rose and riding comfort level started decreasing we have to reach Bhakra Nangal Dam as soon as possible, roads was in good shape, at around 1PM we stopped for lunch, where we can eat as much as possible food in Rs. 60 and we ordered Lassi as well as we was in Punjab how can we miss Lassi, dhaba wala given us a salty Lassi even after we ordered sweet Lassi ,we told him to give us sweet Lassi and he mixed the sugar in same salty Lassi and given us, for me it was so yuck, I never drink that kind of horrible Lassi.

    After we spent some time there with our full stomach ride started again to our first Dam visit, in some 1 hour we reached to Nangal where we have to visit Bhakra Dam, went to take permits, it was some 15 kms far from the city, we took our permits and started riding to Dam and missed a important turn which we was going to DAM after some 15kms Vijay said we have completed the said destination according to permit provider person, then we asked some local their he directed us to right location, but still after searching the place we could not reach to DAM, again some other guys told us to go from somewhere else, after some 1 hour we reached correct gate of DAM from where distance was still some 5-7kms, security guard warned us to do not take any pictures of DAM other wise they will cease our mobile phones/cameras, so we could not take any pictures of DAM, as we enter to DAM area they didn’t allow us to go main DAM wall, we was like WTH , there was already not a single person and why they are allowing anyone to go to DAM wall, now we are totally pissed off and decided not to waste more time and start riding to our destination, it was already 3PM, we again started riding, the road quality was amazing, hairpin curves and newly built roads all the way in between the forest, but at some point there was some animals on the middle of road like cows, dogs and donkeys, even I was crashing into a buffalo once, by thee time it was almost 5:30PM and it was started dark, we put our all effort to reach till Talwara city some 120kms before Dal Housie and decided to stay in Talwaraa only, as some locals warned us on road condition and suggested not ride in dark, so we decided to stay in Talwara for the first night, we found decent room in Rs.800 and day wrapped with lots of butter in Dinner after that we had our Lassi
    I could not take a much picture first day except these.

    Day 2 (17th Oct 14) We actually decided to leave at least 8AM and we did it, it was very cold morning, we can see our bikes washed last night by nature, from here our 2nd Dam is coming just after some 20kms, we all were so excited because just after the DAM, hills are also coming, we decided to have breakfast at our next stop to save time, but we could not cover more than 5 kms with empty stomach and stopped for our breakfast and bad luck we only got tea there and nothing to eat, so we moved afcourse after having tea

    Soon after some nice curves, DAM was in front of us, here also we had to take permits, paid RS. 10 for each bike, given all the details of bike & rider and guard warned us not stop on the DAM wall and do not take any photograph and I found myself riding at 15kmph to enjoy the scene, man that was super duper marvelous I never been to a DAM this much close, stored clean, blue water looks like a sea because it was already sun rising from there, it was looking fantastic, we crossed the DAM and found a decent Dhaba for our breakfast after some 50 kms, as it was Punjab and Rohit is a Punjabi boy so he use to mix with everyone, whether he is hotel attendant or a Dhaba wala and we got to know that milk is not reached to that small city till that time due to that tea is not available anywhere, so we ordered chole bhature & burgers for without tea, when we start eating those burgers butter was literally coming out like hell (it was actually not a burger, it was a mix of chole, alloo ki tikki, many chutnies and lots of butter under the two Pao) after our stomach get full we decided not to stop next 100kms because it was already 10AM.
    Roads was in good condition we found a shortcut as well to save some 15kms and keep checking our route on Nokia Maps, offline maps of Nokia is almost accurate and available all the time because battery draining is not a problem at all, after rode some 110 kms on hills we stopped at a place and took some off road pictures.

    after to cross that patch it was almost 1PM and we decided to skip lunch to save the time and had some snacks only with tea and discussed about route with locals here also one person suggested us not go beyond Bhairgarh, we started riding again soon we reached to same road which was coming from Pathankot towards Dal Housie, we was waiting for the first petrol pump of Himachal Pradesh and we got one, IMO Rs. 4/Per liter is too much when you are almost empty and gonna have a full tank, we tanked up enjoying the very good roads towards Dal Housie took some pictures there, we reached Dal Housie at around 2PM and saw a army school well clean, managed properly, I cant show you the actual beauty of that school because pictures was prohibited there as well by army, but we took some at allowed area.

    In Dal Housie after to eat some chocolate & chips we started our journey to Switzerland it was just 26 kms from Dal Housie and we thought we will cover this in less than one hour, but roads was in very bad shape less light even that was a mid noon sunny day, all the way covered by heavy tree and no traffic not a single person and it was so cold I think some 5 degree in day , while struggling with roads and cold we reached to Switzerland finally after 90 minutes, actually city name is Khajjiar but it is offacially announced Switzerland of India by govt. of Himachal Pradesh and it is a honey moon destination (I feel so), ok, we had our lunch here with fantastic view took some pictures and started our ride to reach nearest city to Bhairgarh as much as possible.

    I must say there was no straight road whether it is extreme steep or extreme slop, you will find youself in first gear all the time in 3-4K RPM on steep and to use engine braking on slop and roads was also not so good, we crossed few mountains, while locals are killing their splendors with tripling on those roads, wonder how they are stopping their bikes on slopes , after to complete some 100kms in 3 hour we reached to Sultanpur before dark and some 180kms before from Bhairgarh, we got a nice place with safe bike parking for the night and as soon we switched on the LCD TV in the room we found India-West indies match is going on, which is happening in Mohali and India is batting as it is only 6:30PM we could not sleep so we enjoyed the first innings of Indian batting and then went out to explore the city, first we gone to have some snacks bread butter, butter Pao and again burgers with tea, it was a kind of big city, as we can see some big brand showroom like Maruti Suzuki, Yamaha, LG and lots of mechanic shops of big commercial vehicle, there was a cross river bridge where we enjoyed a lot because it was moving like hell when a vehicle cross it, we started feeling hungry again then we eat peanuts, some sweet like Gulabjamun, 1 liter of real mix fruit juice and then went for dinner in nice restaurant , we had veg & non veg thali and veg Biryani with curd, I had eaten maximum in my life in a day and we could not complete the Biryani so get it packed for next day, had our Lassi and walked back to our room it was almost one kms away from the restaurant, Damm none of us able to walk due over eating, it was around 10PM we reached our bed, we decided to leave 5AM next morning in any case, because we have to reach at least Pathankot 3rd day while returning after to complete Sach Pass (Some 400kms total on hills).
