    3. Ya, Already bought one. Dust as shit is still a understatement. Was in Srinagar for a week in June. Made a last minute Leh Plan So missed out a lots of places.
    4. Chandigarh i am not sure. Maybe i will start from Jammu (Have friends living there). The Manali leh climb is too steep and have read a lot of them falling sick in the logs.
    6. Okay. will do that. Thanks
    7. Definitely will.. will change the ride days accordingly.
    But My major questions is Transport of bikes by train or Courier (I have GATI, TCI & Agrawals here in my place)
    Since you are already going to load your bike(s) onto Gati/TCI/Agarwals transports, it would make sense to book them for the entire way instead of getting your bikes into two different modes of transport. odds are, if there are plenty of bikes, the couriers will load all of them in a single container, so they will remain safe all through to the final destination, whatever that might be, so might as well make it your intended starting point, to save you the hassle of unloading and reloading them.

    tell the RE guy to exhaustively test every aspect of his bike, in addition, carry atleast 2 complete refills of engine oil (RE), chain lubricant (all exposed chain bikes), chain cleaner, and puncture repair kit. the roads are pathetic in some areas.

    also, on a train, it being a govt organization, they might not be as careful as the private couriers. afterall, the latter do have a reputation to maintain.
    hope that answers your query.

    Default Are all the 2 wheelers banned from Rohtang Pass?

    Hello All,

    I have been planning my trip to Ladakh coming Jun - Aug 2016 (Totally depends on the number of the leaves that I get from work ).

    However I found the following article and I almost got an attack looking at it. Following is the link.

    http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/news/323...tang-pass.html

    I have been through the entire tag, I did not find the answer for my question.

    Following are the few of my queries. I would really appreciate if anyone will help me on these.

    1. Is it really closed?
    If anyone who has done the Ladakh trip in recent 2015, can help me in a better way on this. If it is closed, which is the itinerary that you would suggest.

    2. Is it allowed just to go through the Rohtang pass and not do a picnic over there and return to Manali ?

    Please let me know you thoughts on the same.

    I would happy to know if the Rohtang pass will be open 2016 ride. Fingers crossed

    We are also planning in May 16 [from Blr], but we have some specific plans
    landing in Chandighar and covering Badrinath and mana pass [if we get permit], then spiti vally and reach Leh, surrounding Leh and fly back from Leh.
    planning for 15 days , why fly back from Leh,coz we can save few days which i can spend in mountains

    So here's the 1st entry of pune residents..

    around 4 people from Pune are planning a ride to Leh almost on the same itenerary as shakti. Plans are to start from Pune on 27th May. We Load our bikes (600cc-800cc Class bikes) via Agarwal Couriers and Fly to Chandigarh. (Like nagoo pointed out, Delhi will only increase the number of days with nothing worthwhile happening... Also All of us have already stayed in Delhi so makes more sense to skip it) So If in case anyone else wants to co-ordinate with us from Pune and join us please get in touch with me.

    Accomadations and other important details will be discussed and planned out according to what the majority wants.

    Hello All,

    It is great to see many of fellow XBHPians are planning too.

    However can anyone has links to get the details of the road permit through Rothang Pass.

    Shakti's plan seems OK for me too.
    @shakti,
    May I request you to share yo plan so that it can help many of us.

    Cheers,
    Shridhar

    What details you require ?

    And Since, i don't have to worry about office leaves much. I might do Andaman to Ladakh via Kanyakumari

    Tentative Plan

    Starting Point:
    Chidiyatapu, South Andaman or Indira Point, Great Nicobar (Southern Tip of India)

    Bike will arrive in Ship (TCI maybe) and I will take a Flight

    Day 1: Chennai - Madurai (462kms)
    Day 2: Madurai -Kanyakumari (245Kms)
    Day 3: Kanyakumari- Kochi (305 Kms)
    Day 4: Kochi - Munnar (130Kms)
    Day 5: Munnar - Mysore (391 Kms)
    Day 6: Mysore - Bengaluru (145kms) : The Infosys fellows will join hopefully or from Chandigarh
    Day 7: Bengaluru - Hyderabad (569 Kms)
    Day 8: Hyderabad - Nagpur (500kms)
    Day 9: Nagpur - Jhansi (595 Kms)
    Day 10: Jhansi -Agra (234 Kms)
    Day 11: Agra - Chandigarh (459Kms)

    Might do it in less days depending on fatigue

    From Chandigarh same as the earlier plan.
