    Hi Aruna ..You are correct... There were two hotels together on lease with same owner..The card that you have is of Gold Palace as they didnt have the card of Moonlight.. but the portion we stayed in was Moonlight..

    Great Stuff Buddy You guys are really going to great lengths and adding each detail into it.
    Wish I had the patience to do the same.
    Pics are amazing too.
    Doing Manali to Leh in one shot is commendable. hats off to those drivers.

    Amit bhaiya drove one of the scorpios from Pang to Leh! Which was one of the toughest patch! And the fact that we covered that patch from 7 p.m to 12 midnight made it more challenging!!
    Hats off to the 2 drivers and Amit bhaiya!!:grin::)

    P.S: I helped with the midnight puncture too!! i should have some hats shooting off at me too!!:D

    Lovely triplog it is. Fantastic narration from Manu (not Amit!!) and Rohan on the Double Leh Bill this weekend :) Like an addiction that's just been rekindled!

    PS: Amit bhai, Am a little surprised though - given your methodical planning and the number of women, I was expecting you to have some solution to the same! :)
    PPS: I've stayed in Moonlight (IIRC) and nothing happened. Could be a new/greedy porter who had a go at those huge pile of bags!!

    Thanks Rohan & Hitanshu..

    I have repeateldy said "Hats off to Manu".. just to add here, Manu was the most fit male & Archana the most fit female on the tour.. :)

    Yes Hitanshu, the planning was long & methodical.. In fact i have gone with larger group of females on many previous adventure club trips (to various kinda hills also) & never faced any problem.. But this terrain was totally new & unexpected in terms of finding a shelter/cover for wash.. didnt expect it like this.. :) Now I realise that we shud have carried atleast one toilet tent.. Learning for future may be..
