When California Bound...

Hi Kudabesi,
As you get closer to the West Coast and California, let us know, I'm sure the inmates can give you many suggestions for camping and sightseeing. Some are seasonal, PM me or post as you get closer, like within 15-30 days out. You'll have lots of brothers here..

Great to see you here on Advrider KUDABESI.

We had met during your ride thru Saudi Arabia at the BMW shop in Jeddah when the dealer arranged a small gathering and you had mentioned how you were doing the trip in different legs etc. Just attaching a pic (sorry for pic quality!) to refresh your memory. I am the third person from the left in the BMW T-shirt.




Ride safe and eager to hear & see more of your epic trip

One man - one bike - one planet

KHARDHUNG LA
is a high mountain pass
located in Ladakh region of the Indian
state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The local pronunciation is
"Khardong La" or "Khardzong La"



Local summit signs claim that its elevation is
5,606 m (18,380 ft) metres high and that it
is the world's highest motorable pass.

But these claims are disputed by
multiple modern measurements,
which all agree that its true height is
much nearer to the 5,359 m (17,582 ft)
measured using DGPS and imply that
there are several higher motorable passes.

***

Khardong La
is historically important as it lies
on the major caravan route
from Leh to Kashgar in Central Asia.
About 10,000 horses and camels used
to take the route annually,
and a small population of Bactrian camels
can still be seen at Hunder,
in the area north of the pass.

During World War II
there was an attempt to
transfer war material to China (wikipedia)

HIGH ALTITUDE MOTORABLE ROAD

BARLACHALA
(BARALACHALA)




Baralachala
means summit with cross roads
from Spiti, Ladakh, Zanskar and Lahaul meet here
and in ancient times it was part of a trade route.
On the North West lies the Bhaga River
while the Chandra flows South East.
Near below the Baralacha-la is having
a beautiful emerald lake the Suraj tal (Sun lake),
the source of the river Bhaga.



Legend Folklore

Folklore states that there were two lovers,
Chandra being the daughter of the Moon
and Bhaga the son of the Sun god.
To perform their eternal marriage,
they decided to climb to the Bara-lacha-la
and from there they ran in opposite directions.
Chandra being active and smart easily,
found her way and reached Tandi
after covering the distance of 115 km (71 mi).
Soon Bhaga was found coming
with great struggle through the narrow gorges to Tandi,
where consequently both met and
the celestial marriage was performed.
Bhaga covered about 60 km (37 mi) distance,
which was very difficult (wikipedia)
