Is it advisable to take U turn on such dangerous Mountain strech.

YS may be exploring this area and he would have succeeded because he was known name and could have immediately gathered followers on his channel. In a way, he was an expert in Leh,
He indeed was a Leh expert and there is old saying 'Girte hain Sheh Sawar hi maidane jung main.' He started shooting the you tube videos just before his departure. He purchased LED lights for YouTube camera and also did some videos. He would have been
Successful if fate would have not snatched him. This konkan trip youtuber started around 2014 and was doing food trips initially. He is successful now.
YS was leh expert but missed to acclimatize at Leh for 2, 3 days before moving to Pangong lake for night Photo shoot.
Himbus is explaining that in his Lake vLog.
YS also used to get angry at new Leh Cab drivers.
Even Himbus is cribbing about there timing sense. I do not know why at 14.20 minutes he and his cab partners go to eat food fearing driver eyes as they were supposed to eat at dubruk village on return to leh but again Diver makes noise at dubruk not allowing them to eat there and they are forced to eat maggi at some remote place.

So he rented a car and then took the ferry similar to Rhea Chakraborty's ferry to Alibaugh.

Rhea took the cheaper passenger ferry costing Rs.175 , starting from Gate way of India.
He is explaining tariff diffrence at 3.40 minutes. This Car carrying ferry is diffrent and looks good class and comfortable.

He stumbles at 7 th century stone edict on the way to Alibaugh but neither he nor those history experts bothered to explain what is written on these edicts.
Which king could be this and what he wrote here?

Yes, I noticed that too. He said those cheap ferries start from Gateway of India and that is where Rhea was photographed. Those stone carving are very difficult to read but language looks devnagri.

Leh roads actually look better than Himachal because there are views on both sides. Himachal is mostly mountain on one side and valley on other.

Himbus is cribbing about attitude of Driver uncle about timings and he is complaining since his group has engaged him for two days hence he should not pressure them when, where and what to eat. It seems bad on parts of Taxi driver that he came too early in morning to pick them and was angry at them for eating lunch at Pangong Lake outlet. He has no such complaints against Himachal Bus Drivers in himachal, who also dictate passengers similarly, here also bus passengers depend on choice of Driver for halting places and time of halt. After thought says drivers are right in a way as he himself tells time to reach Leh is 5.5 hours. Total time required is 11 hours for to and fro trips. Drivers there must be wanting to complete the Journey in day hours as is norm in hills, by latest they must be expecting to reach home by 9 in night. This way there is not much window to stay at lake for long unless you start very early in morning from leh and leave lake area by around 4 pm.
It also seems Lake outlets don't provide free food to drivers as most wayside dhabba provide it as norm.
Btw Leh-Laddakh roads are wide too in comparison to Spiti roads and taking U turns is not big issue here.

All these people in India are dramabaj. You hire them pay them and they create drama and spoil your trip. Even kamwalis have their own restrictions.

What can be done of such people, they form driver unions and then hinder livelihood of drivers coming from other states and they even now misbehave with people driving their own cars. They themselves are frustrated lot and like to spoil peace of others.
In Leh corrupt administration has given these union drivers to check papers of private vehicle from other states and even block their way to certain destinations. Leaving no option for dedicated road travellers to remote villages like Himbus to start tracking on foot to popular crowded destinations like Mecloedganj.

Can you really blame the husband for cheating. His wife is breaking all sorts of rules and is accessing CCTV without proper authorization. This thing was headed for divorce already.
