One of the bad place to get punctured near Sarchu considering altitude. But all experiences are to cherish. I'm sure you and your wife would have taken adequate precaution by being hydrated, taking diamox etc.,
Yes. In 2017 too, I drove with a punctured wheel without noticing as the pressure loss was 3-4 psi/day. I did Leh>Pangong Tso>Leh and Leh>Diskit>Leh with that punctured wheel. Finally, noticed the puncture at Diskit, returned and got it repaired at Leh. HP roads are notorious with boulders and sharp stones.One of the bad place to get punctured near Sarchu considering altitude.
Thanks for the compliments and appreciation.Great tour and beautiful pictures!
Yes, all the photos clicked from the passenger side were hers.Were the photographs (taken from the car) clicked by your wife?
I did the entire driving myself. No sharing.I had guessed that both of you must be sharing the driver's duty.
I too have puncture kit and portable pump. But then, the tyre was totally flat due to a deep puncture. I suspected a cut. Hence, I dismantled the tyre and replaced it with the spare wheel, which was much easier than locating the puncture spot and repairing it then and there. Thankfully, the puncture was caused by a sharp stone and repaired at Leh. Wait. My puncture problem did not end at Leh. There is another waiting for me at 5 am at Rohtang Pass in the return journey! Details later. Thanks for the appreciation and pressing the 'like' button many times.I always keep tubeless puncture repair kits + 12V air compressor in my boot.
