    Regarding Competition, all I can say is I will remain slightly tilted towards Yogesh's adventure. Vaibhav has captured the roads, whereas Yogesh did not, but it was the same road that they both rode on.

    Undoubtedly Vaibhav and fellow travelers have captured some really stunning pics but then Yogesh's pics of Khajjiar with that cottage and the horse are just too good, simply out of my dreams.

    And finally, Vaibhav n army were four riding together but Yogesh had only Varun for company and he had to take a lot of responsibility on his shoulder viz. repeatedly assisting Varun with the punctures and when nothing worked he had to ride back alone to arrange for a pick up vehicle and again he rode back.

    I will keep Yogesh's deed ahead of this feat. Vaibhav, please don't mind, I just spoke what I felt. Undoubtedly your's was a heroic effort, just that in my opinion Yogesh was just a little bit ahead of you.

    Abhi, all i can say is we are not competing here! ... Yogesh had his set of experiences, i had mine....And we both shared them here so that the rest can enjoy!...Please dont undermine both the logs by putting them at loggerheads with each other....Infact i wud say that it was Yogesh's log that was inspirational for me to do this ride....And his information and details proved very critical....Thanks to him...:)

    I have no intention of comparing any travelogue with another, it's just that somehow this comparision has cropped up in this thread and I just said what I felt. If I have hurt someone's feelings by my post then I humbly apologize for what I have said.

    Couldn't agree more with what Vaibhav has said.

    Travelogues are personal experiences and perspectives, even travelogue from people who were on the same trip would be vastly different from each other due to difference in perspective and this is what makes them so interesting to read and one of the reasons I have been bugging Varun to write one as well, so I can know how he felt during the ride.

    It is this very perspective that we want to see and hear, and this is why no matter how many time I visit Ladakh or other parts of India, I can’t wait to read some one else’s account of the same place.
