Following in my father's footsteps.



Hi I'm a fit 60 year old wondering if it's possible to cycle from Srinigar to Kargil?
My father did this journey in 1944 - before there was any highway or road to speak of. Apparently his was the first bicycle to be seen in Kargil, a bike that had been hired from a local shop in Srinigar. I like the idea of retracing his foot steps. I know the road isn't perfect and there is a steep elevation, but I feel 30km a day shouldn't be outrageous so the journey could be done in 6 days. Feasible?
