Got up at about 6 am and left to Khardung La. Ravish and JP decided to stay back and hence I went with Brian and Payal in the same xylo driven by Ali.

We had breakfast before we left and reached Kardung La the highest motorable road in the world at about @ 18380 feet by 8 am.

There me and Brian trekked to the highest point of pass and took some awesome photographs. Then had maggi and ladhaki chai at the cafeteria there and then started by about 10am and returned to leh by about 11:15am.

Then had lunch at Thongsal and did most of the packing.

At 4pm went and got my Bike’s crash guard fixed which had bent a little when I had a fall on the way to leh. Then went to the market to draw some cash from the SBI ATM and bought some tibetian and Buddhist music CDs and returned to the hotel by about 7pm.
