    Smile Chennai To Bangalore Via Khardungla

    On 9 September 2011, while driving from Chennai to Bangalore, instead of going via Hosur or Kolar, I took a different, longer route, via Khardungla!

    Some vital statistics of my Leh expedition:

    7849.8 km

    19 days [9 - 27 September 2011]

    13 states/UT [TN/AP/MH/MP/UP/HR/DL/PB/JK/CH/RJ/GJ/KA]

    2 occupants [Myself and my wife]

    1 driver [Me]

    1 car [My Linea]

    This was the origin: my niece's home at Orchards, 85-87, NSK [Arcot] Road, Vadapalani, Chennai.



    My Linea on the top of the world.



    This was the destination: home, sweet home at Basaveswara Nagar, Bangalore.



    The journey has just begun!

    Although I could drive my Linea for 1500+ km in one stretch non-stop, I am unable to post more than 4 images per post here due to restrictions. So, pardon me for more number of posts.

    Wow! Loving this thread. I was super glad to meet Ravi sir at Sonamarg. We were coming back to Bangalore from Leh via the Srinagar route. Minutes before meeting Ravi sir, we were stuck in a pile up caused due to a land slide.

    Only unfortunate thing was I wasnt driving a Fiat. So, me, my wife and Fiat will be longing to make a another similar journey some time in next couple of years.

    That was on 16 September 2011 evening. How can I forget that day/night, when I drove in my Linea on Zojila ghats in the night!
