Well well i got it late here anyways,
Avinash Extremely engrossing photos and a fantastically detailed Travelogue [clap]

This forum doesnt allow Swearing, else i had so much expletives to shower in admiration to you.

My next years Leh - Ladakh is decided, i'll break this news to all my family members and relatives very soon, and certainly your thread will make them seal the decision instantly.

Thank you again.

Well, the return journey is somehow always tiring as you leave the heavenly lands and get set to to return to the bedlam. I say you made good time mate.

One question did you ever give any chance for your uncle to drive

Please some one let me know about the real world FE figures of Scorpio in city. I drive 800 kms per month and need a decent mileage of 11kmpl in city.I would like to have the comfort of an SUV as my running is low. I am thinking of 2014 Scorpio. But if the FE is 9-10 kmpl I will surely stay away from Scorpio. Please help me by letting me know the real world figures. I also heard that 2014 Scorpio is also fuel efficient than previous gen.

Avinash!

This one is yet another EPIC.
I was going through the TL by smooth_rider yesterday and was amazed.
I find another one today (and this was done even before).
Hats off to you. Keeping going.

Truly enjoyed the entire Travel with you.
Really impressed with Uncle for showing so much of nerve and commitment.

I hope to do a similar trip from Chennai in the near future.
