    Cool Re: Pune Leh Solo Trip of 8500kms covering Incredible India

    Day 2 & 3 Ratlam to Amritsar.


    Starting every day with the sunrise, would reassemble stuff, tent, have hot tea and tasty parathas. As per my plan, I was supposed to cover an average of 550km per day, but every turn, every corner seems so beautiful and new that I had to struggle every day to complete my journey.

    Crossing Ratlam, I entered Rajasthan, and it was hell different than any other state I had ridden. I was completely speechless and was lost in the beauty of Rajasthan. And that point I decided to leave the state as soon as possible, so that I can come again only to enjoy the beauty of the state, to get lost again in those sand dunes and forts, which stands tall and tells the story of brave kings who ruled this land once.


    While I reached Rajasthan, I had plans of visiting Chittorgarh fort, did a quick view of fort, it was a rather a huge one, with lots of places which cannot be completed in an hour. Visited a popular temple inside the fort and continued my journey. By night, I was able to make it to Jaipur. Next day early morning I started for Amritsar, as it was more than 800km. Once I reached Rohtak, it was all 6 lane, properly marked, decorated highway.

    Jammu to Kashmir


    From Amritsar, where I spent the whole evening, in the golden temple, completely, hypnotized and lost in tranquillity, serenity, and composure of the temple. Next day early morning started for Srinagar. Till Jammu, it was decent highway and nothing much exciting, but once you leave Jammu city, story changes and you enter the paradise on earth.

    Nothing can explain the simply amazing, lush green peaks of Jammu. Too amazing, wonderous, and marvelous to ignore them. Every trail I see, feel like doing offroad. Every turn feels inspiring and stimulating. Every mountain over there is distinct, every turn is contrary, every experience is diverse.<br>

    Patni Top is another such place, where lots of off roading trails you will find. A steep uphill and the view from the top is too gorgeous. Spent lots of time enjoying the unseen. Nothing more could have satisfied me, than being over there.


    But from Patni Top to Srinagar is scary, cause once you complete the downhill section, you had to cross one of the scariest pass, thin, curvy roads, with lots of truck from opposite side in high speed. One side huge rocks of mountains and other side 100ft of the deep valley, from which nothing can escape.


    Slowly and steadily crossed it, took me time to reach Jawahar Tunnel. A funny tunnel rather, so small, no one can overtake. And once you cross it, you are at Srinagar.

    Such stories which starts with Leh\Ladhak are always popular with the people. But when a "SOLO Rider" tag is added then it comes spicy. 8500kms on solo is one of the self determination and strength test.

    Awesome log....Keep writing bro.

    Can you please give more details like:

    1. Iternery
    2. Cost of entire trip
    3. Cost of the stay per day
    4. Name of the Hotel\Lodge etc where you stayed.
    5. any pointers one should be focused of ?

    @NightFurry

    1. Iternery : I did not worked on iternery. Only knew my destinations and no of days I had. Only thing I kept in mind is to complete 500km per day, till J&K after that, I stayed at places till time I feel like. And as I was solo, no responsilibity or any burden to follow any plan.
    2. Cost of entire trip : from 21 days, I booked hotel only 2 days, other all days I camped, some place or other, so it saved my hotel price, total was 18k approx~
    3. Cost of the stay per day : depends, 2 days I booked, one in leh for 500/- , and in kashmir I booked for 400/-.
    4. Name of the Hotel\Lodge etc where you stayed. sry didnot remember. And I prefer camping in leh, so that I can get real feeling.
    5. any pointers one should be focused of ? YES, not everyday we get chance to do these kind of trips, so enjoy it to the core.
