…….. we woke up to an unusually heavy day at Jispa; had breakfast at the hotel, packed our bags and started the descent towards Manali. Somewhere after passing Keylong, both of us realised we have not spoken a word to each other since departure Jispa. Soon we figured out the reason; and we also figured out why we were feeling unusually heavy that day……….we were leaving the serenity of Ladakh and heading back into our chaotic world. We stopped over to shrug off the heaviness, when a local kid passing by innocently said to us “ Bye Bye – Phir se Aana”. His modest gesture somehow worked wonders on us and immediately we were back to life… cameras were out….. smile back on faces. We clicked few pics and resumed our return journey having made a promise to ourselves – we will come back to get Leh’d again……when ???…….well, before expiry of remaining Diamox Tablets.
As most of the Leh travellers, it was a long cherished dream to travel to Leh…oh…drive to Leh! Plan was in place for almost 5-6 years, but due to various reasons, it was not converting to implementation. Eventually, in Sep this year, things fell in place and we drove to the magical land of Lamas. My travel partner was my brother, Vishal, who also happens to be my best buddy since childhood. I feel it’s very important to have a travel mate of a similar wavelength, when you undertake a journey of this significance / scale.

Departure from Mumbai: 09th Sep 2016. Returned: 26th Sep 2016.
I had been following various forums related to Ladakh travel for long time and with particular keenness prior leaving for the trip. My heartfelt thanks to Mr Dheeraj and DOW team for the wonderful Himalayan travel forum, which helped me immensely during planning as well execution stage. Whichever information you require, it’s available there, no matter how minute it is; thanks again.
Travel from Mumbai to Manali was uneventful and smooth - via Udaipur, Jaipur and Chandigarh (Total 1730 KM). Vishal joined me at Jaipur.
We spent one day at Manali to roam around and for Rohtang permit.
Onward Journey tale to follow soon...
