Hi i am naveen and i live in Jammu, a north Indian town, on the foot hills of the Himalayas. I wanted to bring to yoir attention a very fascinating stretch of road and an alternate route to the Himalayan town of Leh. Usually, moat people take the Manali to Leh route, in order to reach Leh, in Ladakh. There is an an alternate way to reach Leh which passes through one of the most dangerous stretch of road in Himalayas, its scenic, serene and has amazing hill folks on the way. The route is. JAMMU UDHAMPUR. CHINNAINI BATOTE PATNITOP DODA. KISHTWAR GULABGARH KILLAR TINDI. at Tindi it joins the Manali to Leh route and then one carries on north to Leh. What this route offers is the nooks and corners on India and the non commercial side of your cycling experience. I always strongly recommend this route to all tje travellers who stay with me at Jammu. Last year my friend Farnando and his wife did the stretch and made a fine video of the stretch...i will post a link here do check it out. It is about 530kms from Batote to Tindi...approx. bit its absolutely worth it. Www.viajarenmtb.es check out the jammu to pangi write up jammu video.
