Then it was the big bang Tanglang-la.Mind it,this is the worst of all,the weather is never good and the road is worst.It started snowing when we were about to start the climb.

By the time we reached the top,heavy snowfall had started.And the wind blowing from the opposite side of the range was beating us badly.

I dint even intend to remove my helmet for a snap at the Tanglang-la milestone.We started off soon after a couple of shots.

A kilometer ahead,it had been some landslide and traffic was jammed.I was at lead and I have a habbit to cut the traffic the worst way.Tried some weird nooks and corners and we got out of the jam.

But as we went down,I could see a long line of vehicles at the spot.The weather was all cleared up sun had come up.We were lucky to skip the jam.

Things really began to change later as we saw a village after couple of decade kilometers.
There were tree a lot of plantations,some farms and temples around the road.I could see the electricity lines and then I was relieved to see the board……

Soon we reached Upshi at it was about 5pm.I knew it wont take long to Leh from here,but still I insisted to hurry because we had to find a hotel also later.It was a real tedious job to get a hotel but still we got a good room at hotel Tsokar on Old Fort Road at 500 bucks.
