Explore Ladakh on TVS wego

Postby kashpinmax987 » Fri May 19, 2017 1:23 pm

Hi folks! Julleh

I am planning a solo trip to Ladakh on my TVS wego 110 cc. I haven't been a pro rider but I have been riding in and around the city of Mumbai for past 7 years. I have been to Pune and Nashik and Bhimashankar ( the western ghats). Max distance I have covered in a single day is about 400 kms.

I would like people to give their opinions and suggestions about their thoughts on my wego expedition.

I am keen on exploring Ladakh from one corner to the other. Unfortunately I can't consider DBO / Karakoram pass. I wish I had contacts in MOD.

Before I turn the plan into concrete itinerary I need some good advise on time efficiency and weather and road conditions during the period. I would be grateful to know if anyone has such fantasies to travel like a nomad in this beautiful region of Ladakh.

My tentative itinerary is designed as below:

19 Aug Day 1 - Fly from Bombay to Jammu - collect wego from Udhampur by parcel.
20 Aug Day 2 - Udhampur - Srinagar - Sonamarg 281 Kms
21 Aug Day 3 - Sonamarg - zoji la - Kargil - 124 Kms
22 Aug Day 4 - Kargil - Rangdum - 130 Kms
23 Aug Day 5 - Rangdum - Padum - 117 Kms
24Aug Day 6 - Padum - Rangdum - 130 Kms
25 Aug Day 7 - Rangdum - Kargil - Mulbekh - 170 Kms
26 Aug Day 8 - Mulbekh - Lamayuru - Leh 180 Kms
27 Aug Day 9 - Leh
28 Aug Day 10 - Leh - K Top - Diskit - Thoise 141 Kms
29 Aug Day 11 - Thoise - Turtuk 73 Kms
30 Aug Day 12 - Turtuk - Khalsar 114 Kms
31 Aug Day 13 Khalsar - Agham - Shyok - Durbuk - Tangste 106 Kms
01 Sep Day 14 - Tangtse - Pangong Tso - Khaltse - Chushul 99 Kms
02 Sep Day 15 Chushul- Loma - Hanle 124 Kms
03 Sep Day 16 - Hanle - Loma- Mahe - Tso Moriri - 161 Kms
04 Sep Day 17 - Tso Moriri- Sumdo - Tso Kar - 96 Kms
05 Sep Day 18 - Tso Kar - Sarchu - 130 Kms
06 Sep Day 19 - Sarchu - Manali - 251 Kms
07 Sep Day 20 - Manali
08 Sep Day 21 - Manali - Chandigarh - 310 Kms

Warm Regards,

Welcome to DoW Community, Kashyap !! :)

Your plan looks OK. Couple of inputs:

1. Instead of Thoise, stay at Hunder
2. Agham - Shyok and Chusul routes are desolated. Go prepared for puncture repairs and other kits, else it will be trouble being stuck in no mans land.
3. You can find the travel tale of Mr. Batra doing the trip by Gusto in Travel section.
4. September will be a good time to travel.
