Tank raids Himalaya : Delhi - Narkanda – Kufri - Chail

Viju

Life is an Adventure , Take Risk....
Already 3500km on odo with only one highway trip to my native place, me and my tank was excited to raid hills and our work pressure allowed us to do so.

My colleagues Bharat & @Pratik Banerjee accompanied me on this trip , date was decided but destination was not.

Himachal was my only choice, since we didn’t had many days with us so we decided to make a short distance trip.

13th Dec 2016 late evening - All set to leave but destination was still not decided, one of my friend suggested us to visit Tungnath / Auli and we made our mind for the same, left Delhi around 1:30 midnight, we reached a T point near NH24 where right turn is towards Uttrakhand and left turn takes you Himachal.

After reaching the point I again asked my colleagues, guys where to go?

And the reply was, Bhai jahan tera maan kare… And I took the left turn towards Himachal.

After crossing Delhi, it was dense fog all over till Panipat, driven carefully.

On the way….

It was cold, but the sun provided us some warmness.

After having breakfast we moved towards our destination, Narkanda.

Superb tarred road from Kufri to Narkanda, Tank was running smoothly on curves.

We reached Narkanda by 12:30 and found some unexpected snow at road side.
