    I will be waiting for another report from my dream destination. Maybe soon, but doesn't look like it is in the cards for this summer. Stay safe and bring back lots of pretty pictures.

    Sure, would be loaded with few SLRs this time and we have already got a couple of good lens for the Tour. We are tryin to catch hold of MapmyIndia but not sure if they have charted the terrain at all or not since then dont give a demo version to check.
    Problems are few as we need to know couple of details.

    There is a Gompa after PangongTso which i read about on a magazine, one of the most remote areas, I didnt find it in any map nor was the name mentioned on the magazine. If any one could help me with this, it would be wonderful.

    Chanderjeet: Whats this on your signature ?

    If you end up doing the loop down to Srinighar, then save some time to do Kargil to Padum in Zanskar (2 days out, two days back). It is one of the greatest parts of the Himalaya and the riding/camping are adventure riding at it´s best.
