The story of Day 2
The main destinations to be covered on this day were as follows:
- Sarthal – Bhaderwah
- Bhaderwah – Doda
- Doda – Kishtwar
- Kishtwar – Padder
- Padder – Gulabgarh
As always, this day also started early we tried our best to leave early but the lush green surroundings made us to halt for a photo shoot. Everybody gave best of possible poses.
We rented 2 small rooms for spending the night. We had our tents with us but it was raining lightly and the weather was a bit cold so we decided to rent rooms.
The first destination of the day was Bhaderwah and road till this destination was lonely and almost no traffic road. You would not enjoy such road while riding alone. Check out this image gallery which I created to show the beauty and loneliness of this road.
Somehow we reached Bhaderwah and had our breakfast. The next destination was Kishtwar which is major Muslim locality and we reached there by the afternoon and refueled our bikes.
From Kishtwar we went straight towards Gulabgarh which was again a run against time. We were running really late and had to reach Gulabgarh before sunset because we wanted to stay in the hotel instead of tents. We reached Gulabgarh before sunset and luckily got the best available guest house in this small town. They call this guest house as “Alpine hut”.
We were really tired and wanted to have some drinks but the alcohol is banned in this area. Luckily we manage to get 4 beer cans from locals with the help of this guy named Vicky.
If the day went well, all went well. We had beers and good dinner and very next morning left for the ultimate destination “Sach Pass” covering India’s toughest road in Pangi valley. Check out the journey in this video and do subscribe to our channel Busy Janta on Youtube.
