Day - 4
Keylong to Jispa (50 kms)


Woke up with not so good news, it was raining that means it must be snowing uphill at Baralacha La.

DAY – 3
Manali – Keylong (115 Kms)


We left Manali around 10 a.m. As soon as we approached to Rohtang, beautiful sceneries I must say, snow covered mountains.

DAY – 1
Delhi – Theog (402 kms)

Now we are 3 riders “Shahnawaz Karim @shahnawazkarim (my colleague transformed into a good friend)” , “Rahil Akhtar @rap @Rahil_thor (My childhood friend, like a brother)” & “me (Javed Anwar)” . Everyone was full of spirit with the same dream. 

As per plan we left early morning to avoid traffic and for today we planned to reach Narkanda. In no time we reached Ambala (McD). 

This Travelogue is packed with DESIRE, disappointment, EMOTIONS & ACHIEAVEMENT.

It all started in 2008, after watching a Hindi flick “Heroes” starring Sohail Khan & Vatsal Seth. After watching them riding an avenger all the way to Punjab, Kashmir & Leh, I instantly made my decision to do this trip someday but due to lack of knowledge at that time I could not concentrate on this trip and got busy with initial struggle with my professional life till 2010.

In late 2010 I introduced to BCMT and I thank God for that day J, I was more inclined towards cars till then. Meanwhile I did Nanital, Shimla Jaipur on cars & trains. I wrote my first travelogue on BCMT in December 2010.

Celebrated New Year 2011 in Shimla with friends and after few months one of my friends asked me to do Leh in June 2011 as his 2 office colleagues for this trip approached him.

I said Yes without any calculations and the preparations begin, mean while lots of reading on BCMT happened. We all 4 guys decided to leave Delhi at 4th June 2011 after postponing it for 5 days due to Delhi – Manali roads blocked. 

But due to some official obligations I could not leave at 4th June, So I left alone and again postponed it to 14th June 2011. So now I am alone to do this trip, I coordinated with 2 college students coming from Mumbai in same dates but that also didn’t happened. We supposed to meet at Jammu on 15th and then proceed further.

"DAY 2"

Day was too adventures, we were stuck before Dhanaulti just after leaving Mussorie due black ice on road. 

Somehow managed to cover the stretch by deflating the tyres.

"Independence Day Ride to Uttarakhand.”
I always love riding in mountains. Recently have been to Mussoorie, Rishikesh, Auli.
