Those are photos of my June 2009 Motorcycle road trip in the Himalayas (Manali, Leh, Kargil, Srinagar).­

I was riding a Royal Enfield "Bullet" 500cc Machismo, that I rented in Delhi.­

Photos of the Khardung-La Pass and Nubra Valley region, in Ladakh (India).­

Those pristine valleys are very close to Tibet, and near the border line with Pakistan-administered Kashmir.­ A special Inner-line permit is needed to travel in this region.­

The Nubra Valley region is only accessible by road during a couple of summer months, via Khardung-La Pass (elevation 5359 m or 17,615 feet).­

For more information on the Khardung-La pass, read the Wikipedia article:
