LEH a a trip to Heaven
Myself Mohammad Shahid a Govt Employee from a small district Bilaspur in Himachal Pradesh & rider my cousin brother Tahir presently working in MNC at Delhi.
LEH a place which every BIKER wants to go once in a life time and I am one of those lucky one.

This trip was my childhood dream since when I came to know about LEH and BIKING and this dream came to life on 9th June 2012 when I & my brother Tahir we decided to live this dream.

This very date of my tour will be date which I will never forget and is like my SECOND BIRTHDAY.


We planned this tour for one month on phones and mails and finally decided to take only one bag, Two Jeans & shirts each one on the way to LEH and other on way back, one sweater, one jacket, gloves, sunglasses, one muffler, a Camera & two batteries with charger & Nokia Mobile phones with battery backup more than a week.

On the way to LEH we take 4 days to reach as we are two people on one Bike and it was very tiring to adjust and we just complete about 130-150Km in a day and also we didnt know the roads and didnt want to ride during night and but on way back to home we completed the journey in 2 days covering about 300 Kms a day
NOW BACK TO HOME
We come back home via same route LEH Manali as we didnt have much time left to go via Srinagar so now we have another reason to come again to this HEAVEN and this time this will be BILASPUR MANALI LEH SRINAGAR BILASPUR.
Day 6 (14.6.12) - Leh to Jispa
This was simple ride just want to go home and also didnt get much Snow on the way back thats why able to ride for long KMS
Day 7 (15.6.12) - Jispa to Bilaspur
At last we reached home and after two days of rest we again joined our daily routine and same route HOME OFFICE HOME.
