Ladakh, the very name entices and intrigues. I do not believe there is anyone in our country today that has even the slightest of interest in traveling and hasn’t either been to Ladakh already or is not planning to do so. What once was a mysterious land far away is now the dream destination of India. Each year, thousands travel to this piece of heaven on earth and return with long lasting memories and tall tales of travel to cherish. I too was no exception. For most, Ladakh is a biker’s paradise. A place where you proudly ride your motorcycle to. Others travel by car but majority of the tourists go by their own vehicles. But what do you do when you live in other corner of India? Do you bring your own vehicle all the way from your hometown to Himalayas; riding or driving through a boring plane journey? Or do you travel by air and miss the fun of a road journey? No, you mix a bit of everything; something that I ended up doing. A trip to Ladakh means meticulous planning, a lot of research. It is not your usual weekend getaway where you just pack your bags and go to. This trip demands that you familiarize yourself with every aspect of the journey before you start. When I say every aspect, I mean the places, the weather, connectivity, accommodation, possible challenges and much more. Thinking back now, I am not even sure how many hours I spent in research, reading about Ladakh over the web, pages and pages of information.
