    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.

    @Gollum 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.

    Questions:
    what gear did You take along?
    Do you have a puncture kit?
    Did you get mugged anytime during the journey?
    Do you have more photos?
    What was your average speed?
    What difficulties did you face?
    You said stories but did not tell any ;(

    but srinagar to kargil 400km took me 4 days.
    Even i got the same bag with 3 lens setup. but now decided only to keep my 50mm and invest in 18-200 for traveling.

    Srinagar to Kargil in 4 days ?? :O Zozilla pass was closed ??

    @Shaktiv3 nothing was closed, took me time as I started late from srinagar after meeting my father, who is posted over there as he is working in army, spend lots of time in other days taking photographs and talking to people.
    My ride was not just to complete the loop, but to understand the depth and beauty of the valley.

    Journey from Pune to Ratlam : Day 1 :
    As I already mentioned I started my trip only having destination in my mind and as I was travelling solo, had no time constraints, no distance, no location, nothing. I started and ended days as per my wish, stayed at location I loved, had food I prefer, without worrying about anyone.

    As I was in no hurry, I started from Pune approx 8am in morning, crossing Ahmednagar, Shirdi, proceeded towards Ratlam which was near Indore. That was my day 1 plan. but who cares, after every 15 or 20 min I was stopping and reason being the beautiful terrain, location and picturesque hills. Name:  IMG_20150905_103401.jpg

    As I was excited about being at Leh, I was at easy also, riding slowly, enjoying the endless beauty of changing locations, hills, mountains, grass meadows, paddy fields, temple, etc. It was like having a dream. As if everyone was wishing me all the best for my trip. After crossing Shirdi, I found a fort and a baba near a small temple, and when I asked him about the fort and location, he started expressing about his journeys he took, he mentioned as he walked from Pune to Vaishno Devi with other babas. He also dictated stories of the fort and some "Saint" who use to stay in the fort. It was a long discussion for hour and at end I had to stop him to let me continue in the trip. He was happy and wished me for my trip.

    He is the baba I talked about.

    Now Madhya Pradesh was different, it had lots of beautiful and dense forests. Once you enter Madhya Pradesh, you will feel the difference. At few location, it was so beautiful and amazing that you can compare that place with Switzerland. That day I was not able to reach Ratlam, so spend night at a Dhaba and camped over there after my dinner. Before sleeping I had a long chat with the dhaba cook and owner. They were some good guys.

    One advantage of solo trip is because you are alone, you are exposed to many things, and if your attitude is correct, people starts understanding and respecting you. They will love what you do and help you. My parents were worried about me, but during my whole journey I had no issues any place, as there were someone or else at every cornor to help you out.
