Journey VS Destination

Ride for ten days from Dawn to Dusk .

Ride as a pillion rider in the toughest passes and rugged terrains,

Ride which seemed exhausting on the day 1  due to body pain to the day when I dreamt of mountains after coming.

Ride  from Jammu - Srinagar- Kargil - Leh- Nubra- Pangong- Leh-Tsokar-Manali-Chandigarh.

and  passing Khardungla being the highest motorable pass to Rohtang being the most toughest one.

Ride when rugged mountains in Leh seems more beautiful to lush green mountains while entering Manali.

Ride where I stopped capturing bcas it was not worth it but just observing and getting lost.

Ride where every morning was full of curiosity and excitement .

Ride where everything was all about journey and not the destination.

Ride to the Destination

that comes straight out of the world of  fantasies.

where the view changes with just the blink of an eye. . .

Ride though the sun and the shadows . . 

Ride when having hot kawa in the top cafe's was the last thing to ask for. 

Ride through the rough terrains to the beautiful vistas of mountains , glaciers , river crossings and deserts. 

from thick skinned bear like dogs to yaks to double humped camels . 

the blue skies, chocolate mountains , vanilla topping , the moon land !

hues of pangong tso , from seeing the full moon rise in nubra valley and pangong tso to sky full of twinkling stars in tsokar !

Waving the kids and bikers along the way . 

Anything said would not be enough to describe this place !


Ride which was cancelled a number of times before,

where floods came just two days back and i could see the impact while crossing through.

Ride which seemed almost impossible a previous day.

Ride which still stands the ride of my life.

Bold and beautiful. . .

June-July 2015

Passing through the rugged terrains and the moonland

And waking up to this view in Pangong

The unreal landcapes with deserts and snow capped mountains
