Laugh Let's Get Leh'd (Jun 07) - Ladakh India!

Friends, their sisters and fellow ADVers ;)

Am planning a ride to Ladakh in June 2007, right when the passes open. Am starting this thread, to see if other ADVers are doing it too, so I can meet some really cool fellas along the way

Have uploaded my Checklist/itinerary at:
http://www.sharebigfile.com/file/942...klist-xls.html
In text, the plan is such: (all dates in june)
<table x:str="" style="border-collapse: collapse; width: 331pt;" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="442"><col style="width: 39pt;" span="2" width="52"> <col style="width: 29pt;" width="39"> <col style="width: 224pt;" width="299"> <tbody><tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl25" style="height: 12.75pt; width: 39pt;" height="17" width="52">Date</td> <td class="xl25" style="width: 39pt;" width="52">ETD</td> <td class="xl24" style="width: 29pt;" width="39">ETA</td> <td class="xl24" style="width: 224pt;" width="299">Place</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl26" style="height: 12.75pt;" x:num="" height="17">1</td> <td class="xl26">3am</td> <td class="xl22">7pm</td> <td class="xl22">delhi-Marhi/Gulaba/Kothi</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl26" style="height: 12.75pt;" x:num="" height="17">2</td> <td class="xl26">6am</td> <td class="xl22">3pm</td> <td class="xl22">Marhi - pang</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl26" style="height: 12.75pt;" x:num="" height="17">3</td> <td class="xl26">8am</td> <td class="xl22">4pm</td> <td class="xl22">Pang - leh</td> </tr> <tr style="height: 12.75pt;" height="17"> <td class="xl26" style="height: 12.75pt;" x:num="" height="17">4</td> <td class="xl26">

If we go again, we will NOT be pedalling! Currently living in Argentina, so will spent the next couple of years riding S.A. That being said, my wife is talking to a company in India that will provide Enfields for moto tours......

Lemme know. My mech back in Delhi does the same thing - he also provides service backups. The going rate for an enfield is about INR 350-400 if i recall correctly (USD 8/day). What are you getting?

Do lemme know what dates you plan to ride. We could hook up :)

My travel cost would be like 300-400 USD anywhich way :)

Your plane tickets would be the major cost, and about 200 USD for hiring a bike locally - India's cheaper than you think! :)
