    Yes, this route is doable. How many days do you have for the trip?

    Time is no hurdle for me i have plenty to spend on this one.
    I would try to cover as much distance as i could comfortably and without loosing a nap, the only thing i would like to get suggestions for:

    1. if the above mentioned route plan is workable?
    2. Accommodation/Camping sites on this route.
    3. Fuel Availability on this route.
    4. Chandrataal road status

    Also if anyone would like to join.

    Thanks

    1. Yes
    2. Yes. I don't think accommodation is available in Karcham. Never heard of anyone staying there. You can't stay at the top of Kunzum, some people have. But because of the altitude it is not advisable. After Losar, the next place to stay is Batal or Chandra Tal.
    3. Fuel available easily. After Reckong Peo, next fuel bunk is Kaza. Your bike should easily do those 200 odd kilometres on one tank.
    4. There is no 'road' to Chandra Tal. It is a rocky path. No problem for motorcycles
