    What do you mean by record?
    If you are referring to a detailed log then yes I'm maintaining a full log and thus far the journey routes log is being maintained

    from HTC desire S with cynogenmod 7.2
  2. By record I meant video, a car dash cam or handy cam for the leh leg mainly.

    So one of IAS officer from MP last week died while going to Nubra valley from K-top. Due to hard break in slushy road. So it dragged to side road then fell to deep trench.

    If you have observed in the video , the road condition is pretty much same as last year. We had conversation with BRO office once after Rohtang pass where blasting was in progress so we are not allowed to cross the road till it completes. They told where ever the snow is there building of the road will be bit difficult n slow due to water, which is biggest enemy to road . They have to build concerete roads or cement roads , They can build Tarmac but it will take time . So you can imagine how the road will be .

    Be cautious when ever your over taking and if you see a vehicle opposite side coming stop at a place where you feel is safe. As the soil over there is loose you have to be very careful.

    There also taxi drivers drive recklessly you get to see n no xylos n innovas. If you see a army convey give them a way.

    Will update this thread when ever I have info from diffent forums n through friends who are currently doing leh trip.

    Some of the photos latest photos.

    One can see the depth of the water , if you have any doubts this is ex.

    Jam these are common due to unforeseen weather and land slides.

    1. Try online. I'm sure you will find it in kanaut place
    2. Have you tried the local tyre repair fellow or try reliance autozone, if you have
    6. Better to carry coke bottles or these big 10ltsoap oil cans. Jerry cans are known to leak
    Rest all you can easily source from fiat dealers or 99rpm
