  • [SlideShow]: Pune Leh Solo Trip of 8500kms covering Incredible India

    Those who says,"There is nothing in India."

    They have not seen the real India, they have not seen the
    real beauty of Incredible India.
    These are the people who
    goes to a tourist place, take lots of selfies with their DSLR to be posted across social media.

    Being a traveler is hell lot difficult task and for me this is what I am. I loves exploring places in the way, I interacts with people, talk to them, capture emotions , stay with them and this is what makes my trips different and this is why I travel solo.

    This is my story of Pune to Leh and back a solo trip of 8500km across many cities including Indore,Chittorgarh, Jaipur, Amritsar, Pathankot, Srinagar, Leh, Kargil, Manali, Chandigarh, Delhi, Agra, Gwalior, Mathura, Jhansi, Bhopal, Nagpur, Bangalore. It took me 3 weeks approximately 24 days to complete the whole journey and while on the trip, I came across 100s of stories which changed the way I use to travel and see things.

    Nice pictures you got there. It must have been a lovely ride all the way from Pune to Leh.

    I haven't ever heard anyone say that there is nothing in India! Most people say they are too many people in India

    Also could you please edit your post and choose a font style and size which is easier to read. Thanks

                            Regarding Lowpro, i tied it on above my saddle bag, I was carrying 3 lenses and other camera accessories. too heavy to carry for so long.

                            [MENTION=79452]Gollum[/MENTION] this was a 21 day trip for me, I was only aware of my destination and being solo helped me to be more flexible and cover lots of more places.
                            Regarding gears, I was only having riding gear, that also basic one, one jacket, knee guard, extra boots in case one get wet. One leather jacket for Leh as it was too cold over there, rain coat, sleeping bag and tent.

                            I did not carried puncture kit, as I am not having tubeless tyres. before ride I got new set of tyres and that did worked for whole trip without issues.

                            Mugged, nope, not at all rather i was too safe, I spent my nights sleeping outside in dhabas, but no issues, unless ur stuck in some jugle at night. People are rather friendly if your attitude is good towards them.

                            Average speed varried depending on road and location, like jaipur to amritsar I covered 800km in 12hrs, but srinagar to kargil 400km took me 4 days.

                            Stories and lots of photographs will be posted soon. Was waiting for thread approval.
