Name Delhi - Leh-Ladakh on Motorbike Summer 2012

Update 29th Jan 2012
******************

I contacted my friends who are familiar with the region and have done this bike ride so based on their inputs here is the plan:

Day 1 – Delhi - Chandigarh
Day 2 – Chandigarh – Manali (Stop at Kullu)
Day 3 – Manali – Keylong or stop at Jispa
Day 4 – Reach Sarchu or reach Pang
Day 5 – Sarchu – Leh (200 Kms) or Pang to Leh – can reach by lunch time.
Day 6 – Leh (Enjoy Leh)
Day 7 – Leh – K-Top – Diskit or Hundar
Day 8 – Diskit – Panamic – K-Top – Leh
Day 9 – Leh
Day 10 – Leh – Kargil
Day 11 – Kargil – Sonamarg or Srinagar
Day 12 – Reach Patnitop
Day 13 – Reach Chandigarh
Day 14 - Delhi

And again this is completely flexible, if a place is interesting I don't mind spending an extra day or just camping in the mountains.

Later I will post an update regarding the gear as well.

**************************************
I am planning this bike trip from Delhi - Leh/Ladakh for summer 2012. Anyone who is interested in traveling, couch surfing, hiking, camping etc in heart of Himalayas is welcome to join.

savneet I wll advice you to take any bike at least of 150cc or more that that. Becoz u need to carry the luggage with u also. Crossing rohtang pass is one of the difficult pass in the journey.

savneet You can go to karol bagh market, there are lots of shop which give bullet on rent. I think for bullet 350 you need to pay 600 rs per day.
