    I have driven a few times to and fro Ooty [8000'] and Kodaikanal [7000']. But, as I said earlier, this will be my first ever driving expedition to Kashmir and Shimla.

    Due leave availability of my children, I am reducing the number of days from 21 to 15, dropping Leh and further fine-tuning my itinerary as now my son is also joining the gang. My Linea is ready for the trip. No special medicines.

    Leh Trip Revived

    Somehow, mentally I am not inclined to drop Leh! Instead, more drop-outs of places and people! I cancelled my earlier hotel bookings and revised the entire schedule dropping Jaisalmer and Shimla. Now, only myself and my friend will be going in my Linea to Leh [or as far as my Linea takes us towards Leh!;)]. Recommendations for places of stay with facilities for car parking in Srinagar, Kargil, Leh, Nubra valley and Pangong Tso are most welcome.

  5. Bravo, Leh in linea, it should be possible but be careful while driving on pebbles and rocks.
    Problem is less air pressure in trye is good for grip on those pebbles but more air helps to maintain the GC,it's catch 22 situation,be prepared to take out some air or add depending on road conditions.
    I would recommend for manual or electric air filling unit.

    All the reservations have been done. Myself and my friend will be staying at Army/BRO/RCC guest houses at New Delhi, Srinagar, Leh, Hunder, Tanksay and Chandigarh. In Nagpur, we will be staying at Peanut and in Amritsar, Hotel Sapphire. PAN/personnel details have already been sent to our BRO hosts for arranging innerline permits.
