Anybody care to join me and my wife for a trip to Leh starting 5th Oct' 04 from Manali and ending at Manali on 14th Oct. Ideally we are looking for another couple to travel with us. We will be travelling by road in a hired Jeep/Gypsy from Manali. Expenses to be shared equally. The road will be open till mid october this year for a Himalayan car rally being held there.
I'm planning to do that journey, but probably a week or so before you - I need to get a flight out of Leh on the 3rd October - otherwise I'd have been keen to share expenses / form a team!
I was just wondering if you had any details about the rally - I'd be interested in seeing / photographing it if I could find some details on the web. Will it still take place if the snows arrive early? Can they clear the Manali-Leh pass if they need to?
I am sorry about the dates, they are quite rigid for us. Otherwise would have loved to form a team. I will post a link for the rally - look it up.
I really don't know much else about the rally. Just kind of stumbled across the info.
