Hello everyone!

Right i have finally began my travels in India, and hopefully this will be the begining of my 2yr trip in Asia,
If i budget correctly =D,

At the moment i am in Hampi in South India, Staying here to do charity work as a volunteer for a Childrens trust here, to keep kids of the streets etc, I was travelling with a friend, But i ended up staying here, My friend moved on North India, got stressed and flown to Thailand,

So the idea of now buying a Motorbike has come to plan, Head north and do this Menali-Leh highway which everyone goes on about, I hear it opens in June?!

Just wondering if there are any others on here going to do that?
That is unknown area to me and it is always better to do that run in a small group?

Let me know if you plan to do it!
Cheers people!

Peace...

Hello everyone!

Manali--leh highway is best done on a motorbike, but u have to keep in mind that the highway opens depending on the condition of the roads, landslides, snow etc. Usually the road opens in the first week of July but depending on the conditions it may open by the end of June also. Kindly check the exact date of opening at www.leh.nic.in

Do you still want to find out about a group that is doing a bike trip to Leh-Manali ? If yes, I can try to find out.

not sure if that will bring up the search I did. If not just do a search for "motorcycle" within this website. Lots of good info there.
