The series so far…

In the previous article of this series, I talked about how Travel is continuously transforming my personality and how it helped me love plus respect this ONE life to keep feeling "Alive is Awesome" In this article I will try to mention few reasons why I keep Traveling and why it has become a part of my life. Unlike previous article, I will try to keep it short and simple 🙂

6 Reasons Why I Travel

    I am a cranky traveler or make that fussy. I plan a lot and sometimes miss out on spontaneity. But you have made travel so much fun. I loved all the pictures 🙂

    This was a nice reading. I like your travel stories from ladakh. I will be planning a trip in search of snow leopard.

    Keep on writing.

  6. Hi Dheeraj:) Excellent article & I’ve been reading quite a few of them. Really impressive. Although Dheeraj, I would appreciate it greatly if you could suggest the best month to do a Srinagar-Leh-Manali trip on a motorbike. Shall await your response. Thanks, Kiran.

    • Hi Kiran,

      Thanks alot 🙂

      It is always nice to plan your journey in last 10 days of June or first 2-3 weeks of July when you can find ample of snow on roads and roads will be open by that time from both Srinagar as well as Manali sides to Leh. Now, please keep in mind that road conditions hardly improve on Manali – Leh road and remains almost quite challenging + adventurous all throughout the season. It improves slightly towards the end of season that is September or October first week but by that time snow is all gone. So, you need to be prepared for all the adventure that Manali – Leh Highway present to a traveller in the month of June – July and situation worsens when monsoon comes in late July and August. So IMHO, overall whatever best window you will get so that you avoid monsoons, see ample of snow and roads are open for you will be like 20th June – 20th July window.

      If you want to see beautiful colours of Ladakh then second half of September is THE best time to visit Ladakh when these colours are oozing out vividly and of course, the road conditions does get better in late September type when rains reside the region completely.

      • Dheeraj… You are so precise. It’s just so nice to have someone like you share knowledge selflessly & help others whom you may not even know. Thanks a Gallon.

  7. Those who like to travel, sometimes, do not get a chance, they only imagine , read, and try to feel good. Some who travel a lot hate it and wait to get home.

    but , you have the desire and the opportunity, and the will power. You are enjoying this, and also giving us readers a lot of joy, reading about your good times.

    Thanks.

    • Thank you so much Pattu ji. Yes, feel lucky and god blessed to provide me will power and opportunity to get back to life again through Travel. I try my best to share all the information I learn over Traveling. You have been a constant motivation, pouring some inspiring comments over the past. Thank you very much for the same!! 🙂
