It's Happening!

Finally its the d-day, on 24th July 2017, Priyanka started her inspirational travel journey, with thrillophilia’s ‘Bike Trip To Leh Ladakh For 10 Days’ package.

So here she was introducing herself to a bunch of enthusiast riders, all unknown but filled with the same energy she was beholding inside her.

She quotes, ”I had gone to this trip solo but little did I know, that I’ll come back making a group of people who are as crazy as me.”

It’s every traveler’s dream to witness the beauty of Ladakh with their own eyes. This place has been on top of every traveler’s bucket list, as it offers something to everyone. Denoted as ‘heaven on earth’ Ladakh is known for its idyllic landscapes soothing every soul on earth.

Starting her journey from Leh, and passing through the green valleys topped with magnificent snowy mountains while moving on thrilling terrains and marking all the high passes of the region, Priyanka was feeling a lot of mixed emotions. All the bikers can understand the fierceness of emotions she was feeling.

Scratching her way through the trip, she was feeling blessed, in her own words, “What can be a better choice than biking through difficult mountain roads. We started from the lush greens of Manali and landed in the mountain desert of Leh. The whole tour was like living through some dream!”.

Following a route viz. Manali – Rohtang Pass – Koksar – Keylong – Jispa – Darcha – Sarchu- Leh. Her journey was full of fun, but she did face some challenges as an urban born person, but she managed to adjust in the nomadic bike ride facilities, which made her traveling spirit high.

When asked she summed up the whole journey into one sentence, “I can still feel the wind in my hair and the feeling like I’m flying”.

This is the beauty of Ladakh, it makes you feel like you are in a dream flying over mountains. One can expect a mystical feeling while scaling down from the Rohtang pass, climbing the BaraLacha Pass and moving forward to the world’s tallest motorable pass, the famous Khardung La. Ladakh is a whole mood, offering pretty monasteries, high peaks, adventurous mountains, and amazing weather, all at one place.

Be prepared for a successful trip!

The bold decision of solo traveling is a bit risky but can be made safe by following and preparing some safety measures. Priyanka did her homework and prepared herself both mentally and physically. One should not underestimate the high altitude situations offered by Ladakh, proper meditation, breathing exercises and high quality gears are a must to carry with oneself.

Priyanka too followed a guide, including five simple steps, to make her travels as smooth as possible. Sharing with us below are some tips our first time solo traveler listed out for us-

  1. If you really want to go on a solo trip, then don’t overthink , just go for it!
  2. It is normal to feel light headaches during your starting days, just follow your team leader;s instructions, and don’t panic over Altitude sickness.
  3. Riding solo for the first time, then make sure that you always stay close to your group. Don’t wander off alone leaving your group behind, it may lead to some unwanted adventures.
  4. Live more in the moment and less on the phone, as you get to pause less on the first few days, once you are familiar with the route, it will be easy to cover the distance as you go by.
  5. This is an adventure trip where one will have to come out of their comfort zone, as you will find some tough times, but don’t worry those will soon convert into memories.
