    Dear and Respected Mr. Khan,
    As per you suggestion and advises, we started from chennai on 12th in my mahindra alturas g4, via gwalior and delhi to manali and on 16th got permitt from manali and started our adventure drive on 17th morning via rothangpass, keylong, jesper (hault) barchala, pang and finally reached laduak on 18th evening. As you have already narrated and discribed the roads and advised us to be prepared,
    " we were well prepared and enjoyed the entire stretch of 500 kms from manali to ladauk, expect in one place ie before barchala, with 20 feet high snow on the both side of the road, we were stuck ( as you've mentioned ) with on coming vehicle and held up there for over 30 minutes and made us count for death."
    Some how we managed with your advise, which was very helpful and had the AMS tablets we had carried and ofcourse with camphor to inhale gave us bit relieved, but the entire day went on with headach as you have already told us to be prepared, but however the locations and nature's beauty of the vallies gave us strength to bear the pain as well.
    And there after on 19th, afternoon we left behind my bro and his son due to the sickness, to KHARDUNG LA, eventhough its just 37 kms, the entire stretch of road was too damaged and with too thick snow and fog and took 2 hours to reach up and finally we reached,
    And we stayed overnight at laduak and, on 21st morning via srinagar which was another 500 kms tough road we travelled back with land slidings and reached srinagar at midnight and stayed over night at a boat house. From there on 22nd, we started our return jouney via jamu, delhi, hydrabad and reached chennai on 24th with a non stop drive which covered a total distance of 7500kms from chennai - khardung la - chennai
    All the above was peacefully done, enjoyed and i personally happened fulfill my dream, because of your kind and generous advice to myself personaly and through the blog to each and everyone patiently, and i'm sure it woudn't have be made possible without you.
    " I honestly wish and pray, that the God should truely to bring and make all your wishes to come true with good health and wealth. "
    yours sincerly,
