    Default Day 10: Srinagar to Leh (via Kargil), Day 11: In and around Leh, Day 12: Khardung La

    Early morning Beauty. Mind blowing here for me. Srinagar Lake



    Just the silence and me with the lake. Moments are precious



    My nerves are getting close. Still I am going.



    Rest Time



    Yamaha R15 - He is the Best



    Purity of the Water



    Dream become true. Touching the snow, playing, running and jumping on it.



    Highest point of 13479 ft in Srinagar to Leh Road



    I have no words to explain such feel



    Reached Leh around 11 pm night. It was thrilling ride experience to reach Leh during Night hours.



    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

    Day 11: In and Around Leh

    Ginger Lemon Honey Tea - was very different in it's taste and look. Three layers of colour.



















    11th Day I tried to reach Khardung La, but due to freah snow on the way to Khardung La the securities didnt allow me to go further.
    The next day I again tried and thank all road workers who cleared the snow road ASAP in the over night.


    12th Day - at Khardung La (Highest Motorable Road in the World - 18,379 ft)


    It took 12 days to reach Khardung La from Krishangiri and after this picture has been taken I just thought of my Mother and from my heart I said Mom I made it safe as I promised and started crying heavily. I couldnt control stop crying but then it took 5 minutes. I dont know why I cried but later while coming down to Leh, I realized the meanings of each and every tear I left in Khardung La.
