    Non Stop driving through NH1A is really tough especially during the night, what with the heavy vehicles traffic moving at these times. Not to mention the prolonged army convoys. Ravi ji do take care and not push extra. How many drivers are there?

    Thanks, Kapil. I did not get caught in any army convoys. I am the only driver!

    Amazing ! Kudos to you Ravi'ji for this extraordinary trip.

    Leh trip has been in radar since 2-3 years. Don't know if it could materialize. For now, will be eagerly awaiting your travelogue.

    Thanks a lot, Amit and M A N U, for your kind wishes. We are starting in another hour or so to Leh. But, it has been raining all through the night. My Linea had tankful of petrol last night at Rs 68.78 before the hike was effected.:)

    Leh Expedition Update

    We reached Leh safely at 2:30 pm today. Earlier, we had left Srinagar yesterday at 8:00 am and reached Sonamarg by 11:00 am. But, we were not allowed to proceed further as there were a lot of landslides en route especially near Zozilla Pass. Hence, we took a room at JKTDC rest house and had good siesta after lunch. We left Sonamarg at 8:30 pm after dinner and reached Kargil by 3:00 am today. But, since the petrol pump opens at 6 am only, we had a power nap at the car itself parked in the petrol pump. After tankful of petrol at Kargil, we left at 6 am today and reached Leh by 2:30 pm. The roads were very bad especially at Zozilla Pass. All along the route, we were stopped at many locations as BRO workers were clearing the debris and stones blocking the road. Hence, the delay in reaching Leh.
