Ladakh, Heaven on Earth
Hi every one, last September I went to Ladakh on my motorcycle. I have to say it is truly heaven on earth, a biker’s paradise. Finally after a long time, I have completed my trip log. Thought I would share it with every one.
To heaven and back
It’s human nature to dream, so is the nature to do what few have done and is considered as a “foolish thing”. There is some allure in doing what only a select few can do, to make it to “The Top of the world”. Once your heart and mind is set on such a task, few things in the world can divert you from it.
For past few years, some thing of this sort had been doing rounds in my head. Ever since I read in BSMotoring of the exploits of their travel writer on Silver colored Bajaj Pulsar 180 conquering the highest and coldest desert in the world. I couldn’t stop picturing myself and my Red Pulsar 180 in place of him and his bike.
As the days drew ever so near for my longest and hardest trip yet. I knew I had something special coming. Soon I will make it to the “Top of the world” (quite literally), do some thing that most will not even dream of.
I was about to embark upon a journey to the vary heart of Himalayas, a place known as Ladakh, land of passes.
