    Congrats. Esp on the leh-srinagar ride that is pooh-poohed as per conventional wisdom.

    Also, those minutes wiating for esteem would've been painful! :)

    Because of the controlled timings and one-way passage!

    Nothing succeeds like success. In ignorance, our friend got lucky and did not need to wait by the wayside for 4 to 5 hours!!
    Lady Luck was with him! So he can't really claim to have done it alone! :grin:.....:grin:

    I agree Bharat, I also have never heard of any one who has ever done it. With all the problems you had Mr Zipper, reaching there well in time, phew.
    That was quite a herculean task, I must say.
    cheers...
