yer Duff Dunbar, Himachal Pradesh (India)

I have divided the Manali - Leh in three stretches.
The first one consists substantially of the Rohtang La crossing, followed by the descent into the Chandra valley, with the subsequent ascent in the Bhaga valley.
Due to an error, I cycled off from Manali with the recording of the track points on the card turned off. I detected this when we were already at Whisky Nalah.
So, of the bicycle ride I own only the 500-point compressed track.
For this reason I recorded properly the data while travelling back to Manali from Leh by bus, on 25-02-2015, following the very same route - which is also the only one. Hence, the present track is obtained by time-reversing that data. Compared to typical tracks recorded from the bicycle, I detected a little loss of precision in some stretches. However, consider that this is not a point since the whole track follows the road.

The division in days is as follows:
04-08: in the afternoon, climb from Manali up to Marrhi, last village under the Rohtang La;
05-08: crossing of the Rohtang La. Descent to the Chandra valley, followed until Gondhla, a little settlement past Sissu;
06-08: descent to the Chandra-Bhaga junction, the point where the two river unite to form the Chenab river. Ascent to Keylong and, past Keylong, to the tiny village of Gimur;
07-08: only the first kms of this day, until the Darcha bridge, are included in the present track. See Manali-Leh 02 for continuation.

Photos; WORK IN PROGRESS!

    Hola Alberto
    .he visto en wikiloc que has ciclado por el himalaia indio,en el valle de Nubra,yo en dos semanas empiezo una ruta en bici por el himalaia indio hasta nepal,te queria preguntar alguna cosa.
    ¿se necesita permiso para ese valle,tienes algun sitio de confianza para el permiso?,¿que tal estan las pistas?¿para dormir hay alojamiento,es que no llevo tienda?¿cuanto tiempo te costo en hacerlo? veo que lo tienes dividido en 3 partes
    ¿merece la pena llegar hasta el lago pangong?
    te mando mi blog para que veas que me encanta la bici y si te puedo ayudar en algun viaje sera un placer

    Hola Alfredo
    Para Nubra y Pangong, y cualquier lugar al norte de la Manali - Leh, necesita permiso, que se puede lograr solo en Leh. Puedo aconsejar "Luna Ladakh Travel", lo hacen en un día.
    Carpa: nosotros hemos llevado una pequeña carpa a túnel, pero sin utilizarla, porque siempre se encuentra alojamiento, puede ser en carpas gigantes ("parachute tents") como por ejemplo en Bharatpur

    Las pistas del Himalaya están en condiciones muy variables de año en año!
    Pangong: seguro merece, y la pista no es mala.
    Saludos, Alberto.
