    hey lovemax, thanks for the info.

    hmm no need for mech's. am well versed with bikes. will take necessary spares etc. one of the reasons why my leh trip is getting delayed if because of the lack of high altiude gear. need some good jackets, gloves etc. the faster i can find em, the earlier i leave ...

      Nopes Nikhil its not really that
      -The protection you need is : A SPF18 standard cream -
      : A good leather jacket - any one will do - which can keep warm
      : A simple pair of gloves
      : A lot of flexibility within yourself - be it anywhere - stay calm
      : Atleast 6 pair socks as you are driving through lot of water on roads
      : A medical kit
      You are ready to ROCK nikhil ! any more tips
      Yes, Dont go in rains - you have land slides on the way - even avalanches at Khardungla -
      I experienced and seen it all .. SO a small tip
      BEst season to go is September now if you can withstand sub freezing temp's in evenings
      June 12 I slept in -2C. Imagine it in winters.
      Better go in May last week or June first, second week.
      ON snow put chains on your wheel if you dont have those tractor grooves on your wheel.
      I cn tell u lot more - just tell me wen u are going

                                lovemax, i'm headed for leh sometime next week. gotto get 600 kms done on my bike. service. then i'm off!

                                i'm going solo. the proposed trip is ... meerut->chandigarh->bilaspur->manali(stop over)->keylong(stop over)->sarchu(stop over)->leh(stop over)->khardung la->back->return via dras kargil.

                                what i wish to know is whether it shall be necessry to carry extra fuel after tandi? my bikes tank can hold 15 ltrs. will that not be enough to take me to leh?

                                also how many times have you done delhi->leh? have you ever come back via dras/kargil or was it back thru manali?
