        After bookmarking this thread few days back, finally got time to read the whole log and view all the pictures. You have taken few great shots in this trip, dada. I do not know if I even have the right to say this, but I feel that for few pictures the framing could have been even better (IMHO). Even in some pics you could have done better during PP. But that's just my opinion. Overall, really great pictures.

        Last year when I went to Nathula pass in the tensed Indo-China border, I have seen that they always give you pass if it is safe and convenient for both the parties. Kudos to BRO and Indian Army for doing an excellent job in those remote areas. They are the real hero. Hats off to them.

          Thanks. Try to be more careful in my future endeavours.

          Thanks, I am sure Brigitte is reading this.

          Ladakh rides are pouring this time but its first with a kid. He deserves appreciation for sitting as pillion throughout as I always think its more tough on a pillion than on rider. Kudos!!
          I'm sure Ms.Brigitte must have had an experience on Avenger.... I love that bike. I'm really interested to know how did Avy200 perform?? What feedback does the rider has for it??

          @Ken Da - All in all great log till now & I'm waiting for rest of the story to unfold.
          It is indeed tough for a pillion. Very tough. But he is a great kid! And he thoroughly enjoyed it.

          I will soon be putting up Ms Brigitte's impressions regarding the change in bike!

                    Day 7Chang La:

                    Congratulations to Brigitte for doing this


                    My Ever faithful pillion!


                    Chang La Baba Blessed us!


                    A short video:
                    YouTube - Chang La in June 2010Our Tents


                    Inside the Tent, a short break before going off


                    And finally...
                    Pangong Tso:



                    YouTube - Pangong Tso

                    YouTube - Pangong Tso Mediterranean

                    Emerald green








                    I went down to the waterfront!


                    And tasted the water...


                    The Vastness of such a place makes you feel infinitesimally small!


                    Another example:


                    Land's End




                    Gulls




                    Papa, lets go there to the water!


                    And we went there...Brigitte's Impressions

                    "Today's ride was beautiful. Most of the road was good surprisingly for a change. It de-stresses the mind as I did not have to constantly think about the rocks on the road, the potholes, the mud and water. I could really soak up the beauty of nature and enjoy the ride.

                    I had only heard about the Blue Pangong Lake and seen some pictures. But for blue, this is the bluest it can get. Nothing gets bluer than this. And when you get here, it is difficult to imagine which planet you are on. This place does not look like from this planet. Totally barren with desert like conditions, not a blade of grass, and this huge beautiful blue lake that completely takes you by surprise. It is total bliss to be here."

                    She even demonstrated to us the difference in the cries of the Gulls at Pangong and those in the Mediterranean! And at her demo, the Gulls there took immediate flight!

                    ... to be continued

                        Thanks Jonak! Good coming from you.

                        No CPL as yet. And I do not know much about ND filters! Have to learn!

                          Nice bit of text, loved reading through it. And beautiful photos too.

                          @Jonak: At places like those (Leh/ Spiti), one doesn't need a CPL or an GND; it's all so naturally blue and vibrant!

                              Thanks!

                              I never thought that the Gulls would be such a hit!!! I am usually very poor with birds unless they are in my hands!
