    It was a "Itch" which started two years ago,somehow was not able to get rid of it all this while.After some negotiations with boss and coming up of long weekend i made up my mind to do this circuit in 1st week of October.

    While i was slightly worried on the weather's part,October basically is the month when winters eventually starts capturing the summers.Joined BCMTouring for know how of the weather in that region.

    10 days before the trip,Akshay paaji read my post at BCMT and PM'ed me if am the same TFI mate.He remembers me,meeting him once at TFI Chandigarh meet back in sep-2012.Fortunately he was planning the same sojourn with his better half during that similar time horizon .

    That is how it all started and brought we six in sheer pleasure.

    This is what am here referring to.

    Itch to get Leh'd,yes we are finally Leh'd.All in all it was heavenly experience to be at such incredible place on planet earth.

    Special thanks to Indian army,BRO,Laborers working on that route in such hard conditions and lastly warm people at Leh.Without you all,this journey wouldn't have been possible.

    What a lovely co-incidence. Punto along with Thar is certainly looking two different vehicle, but on same mission.
    These few pictures shows something special is coming.

    Thar on duty.




    This is where punto had severe underbody hit and registration plate gets merged in water due to some stone hitting from front.
