    @Bholabhai: Brilliant! When did you do this trip? This month!? If yes, then probably you are one of the first ones to do this route this season!

    Has the road to Leh thrown open to general public? More details awaited, eagerly!

    Day-1

    I woke up early and started from Hisar at 5:00 am. Umair and Suresh started from Delhi at the same time. WE planed to meet at Ambala. We proceed from Ambala at 11:30 am. At Chandigarh the police enquired from Suresh and the matter was resolved by us. We took our Lunch at Ropar which was packed by my better half (wife) and started for Manali. This day we drove a little bit fast as to reach Manali. We took very few pics on the way. We discussed at Kullu and decided to reach Manali. We reached Manali around 10:00 pm. We tried at two hotel and finally booked a room at Link Way for INR 600. Finding a good hotel at Manali on cheap rates depends on your skill. By the way this time Suresh took the chance and got a good place on cheap rates. WE took dinner, discussed for further plan and went to bed around 12:00. This day was having only driving with a few pics only.

    End of Day

    @Guys: I have been to Rajesh ji's (Bhola bhai here) place twice now, in Hisar, on my way to Churu. A gem of a person he is!

    Day :2

    We started from Manali at 7:00 am with a plan in mind to reach Sarchu by the evening.We took our breakfast of Aaloo prantha with tea at road side Thela in Manali. We reached at Rohtang through a huge traffic Jam. Being on bikes it was a little bit easy for us to go through it. At Rohtang it was first snow of our trip and a lot was to come further. We were very glad to see first snow. We stayed there for half an hour and proceed further. Our next stop was Koksar for tea and snaks. The road from Rohtang to koksar was very bad because of water streams on the road. We tanked up at Ttandi after Manali. We also took 9 liters extra fuel for emergency. ( Actually this fuel was not used).When we reached Keylong it was already 4:00 pm where we took lunch. Then headed towards Sarchu ( Frankly speaking this time myself was quite sure that we will not be able to reach sarchu). At 6:00 pm we booked our bed in Leh Dhaba at Darcha. Before that we had to cross two huge water streams because of damaged bridge. After a little rest we went to river for a photo session and evening walk. Darcha is a quite pretty place to spend one evening. After that we discussed a lot with local people about the road, pass and their local life. We got very useful information. Suresh & Umair refused to take dinner as we took late lunch. I decided to have little drink.
