    Default S 3 | Sohra, Sandakphu & Sikkim




    Sandakphu ,Sikkim & Sohra on Bike !

    It was my dream ride to above 3 places named with letter " S " & for which I rode through 7 Indian states viz. Odisha, West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Assam, Meghalaya & Sikkim. My age is 49 and I ride Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS. In 2013 , I rode from Cuttack to Manipal for 3865 km , just to meet my daughter. I have rode solo to Ladakh & Zanskar in 2014 for 3987 km.

    This ride was of total 4464 KM for 19 days.

    Click HERE = to listen to soothing music in background.


    Highlight of S 1 = Sohra
    ↓↓↓
























    Sohra , local name of Cherrapunjee has many waterfalls. And the Nohkalikai waterfall was special attraction for me.

    Visited India's 4 th , 5 th and 7 th highest waterfalls in Cherrapunjee.

    Rode on worse Farakka Route , Visited Fulbari Bangladesh Border , Kamakhya Temple Guwahati , Shillong 's 3 steps Elephant waterfalls , Air Force Museum, Umiam Lake of Shillong, LUM MANJEN-HIGHEST PLACE OF MEGHALAYA (6446 feet ).

    Rode on Guwahati to Khasi mountain road...India's top 10 mountain road, Trekked to Single and double decker living root bridge of Nongriat , took bath in water stream near double decker living root bridge.

    and while on the way to Siliguri rode via Buxa Tiger Reserve and Jaldapara National Park .



    Highlight of S 2 = Sandakphu
    ↓↓↓
























    Sandakphu is HIGHEST PEAK OF WEST BENGAL at 11929 feet above sea level.

    World's top 4 mountain peak =Four of the five highest peaks in the world ,ie. Everest, Kangchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu can be seen from Sandakphu.

    Saw Sunset and Sunrise from Sandakphu.

    Although from Maneybhanjang to Sandakphu is 31 KM , but it took one & half days on bike to reach. This road is meant for trekking and 4x4 vehicles only. But me and Neel Da could reach there on Bike (one wheel drive).

    Ghoom - Highest Railway Station in India (7407 feet).

    Toughest Ride for me so far. Fell three times. Scrathed bike , broke mirror , Footrest pierced into shoes....but God kept me intact.

    This ride would not have been completed without Neel Dey. I thank you Neel Da from bottom of my heart for all the great pictues of mine and your support during the ride of Sandakphu.



    Highlight of S 3 = Sikkim ↓↓↓
























    Visited highest Lake of India TSO LHAMO LAKE at 17,400 feet.

    Saw 5th Highest Pass of World Dongkha La Pass (18000 feet) from clearly visible distance, ie. from Tso Lhamo Lake base.

    Visited Gurudongmor Lake , second highest lake of India at 17,100 feet.

    Visited Highest Golf Course of World at KUPUP at 13000 feet.

    Also visited Tsomgo Lake , Chopta Valley , Nathang Valley , Elephant Lake , Harbhajan Baba temple , Thangu .

    Pure bliss, after a long time. The shillong pics are so nostalgic - spectacular. Mind-blowing captures to say the least; can't wait for the whole story to unfold.
