    Road Trip to Leh From Hyderabad

    Yes definitely a life time adventure but unfortunately we had to cancel the road trip during the last moment since my father can't afford to take 20 days leave. However, we are planning by flight till Srinagar and then by taxi referred by @sagar. Hopefully we do it next year, everything happens for our good... I'll also have the opportunity to see the roads before I myself drive there... However, canceling this at the last moment is really saddening to me😢 Main reason behind this plan is I wanted to take my car somewhere really far, wanted to do a really big road trip. Taking a flight will definitely not satisfy me, though the mesmerising beauty will make me happy. Confused between Leh and road trip to some far away wildlife sanctuary. Anyway I have a week's time, will see if I can take my car on another road trip (800kms approx one way) which wouldn't take these many days or else will plan for Leh.

    Road Trip to Leh From Hyderabad

    Please share the contact. Also please let me know if it’s really risky or safe to take a self drive car to the Himalayas considering the taxi unions .

    Any alternative route available? Any recently reported incidents which came to your notice?

    Road Trip to Leh From Hyderabad

    Sure @Ranger thanks for the advice. Any precautions to be taken before we start the trip? And particular precautions for the Himalayan nature and conditions? No sight seeing in Kargil?

    Road Trip to Leh From Hyderabad

    Very much clear. Thank you. Please update on the road conditions and safety for outside vehicles as well. I'm traveling with family so taking extra care.

    @dishari day 7 to day 11 I don't understand. Could you please give some more details? Like the stay options, location (after leh or else back to Leh and those places)

    Road Trip to Leh From Hyderabad

    Where is Turtuk? Is it after crossing leh? Do we find any good stay options for family? Where is Hunder? And do we find any stay options for family? I read Manali route is dangerous from @sagar route suggestions. Any more suggestions please?
  9. Road trip to the Himalayas is the thing that always fascinates me. I read almost all the trip reports available in all the top road trip forums about road trip to Leh. I think this is the perfect time for me to plan a road trip now. I have a beautiful car, completing my Degree which means will have a great time for the trip and also I partially convinced my father. The only things remaining is a proper route plan which is the reason behind this write up and hopefully 15 days of time for my father for this trip. Vehicle: Ford Freestyle Titanium TDCi Drivers: Me and my Father No. of travelers: Me and my parents. Month of travel: Between June, July. So it will be me and my parents doing the road trip. I request experienced people out here to please give information and the route, terrain details as we both are new to drive in the Himalayas, vehicle capability, family friendly stay (if possible), precautions, driving tips, weather details. Waiting for responses, thanks in advance.

    Hyderabad to Leh-Ladakh road trip!

    Thank you @Ranger. Will create a thread after my plan. Checked @sagar‘s post on route info and it’s really informative. Planning according to that.

    A solo road trip to Hampi!

    Sounds simple and economic. Any suggestions o dash cams or shall I go with tested YI?
  12. Simple and crisp write up @PremSai beautiful pictures. Those sand dunes look really beautiful. Should definitely visit this place. @Ranger @sagar @Sridhar Tandra While you people were busy looking for accommodation and camping, I was thinking of a golden hour photo shoot there😁 i already started to imagine different frames and angles. Those trees on sand dunes are beautiful.

    A solo road trip to Hampi!

    Thanks for the suggestion @Ranger. In that case I should buy YI cam for my day to day purpose and then separately take an action camera. But I have a doubt, in what way does generating more heat effect our car? And SJ Cam SJ4000 has a dash cam mode. Would that help?

    What’s the difference between SJ cam and YI? Does YI serve the purpose of an action camera as it’s a dash cam? Yes they are really cheap and reliable. I should look for good alternatives. For travelers like us who solely concentrate on travel and do videos/vlogs out of passion investing 30k or even 10k for a camera solely is not worth. As said by you we seldom use them. Till last year I was crazy about GoPro and desperately wanted to buy one. That interest slowly washed away and now I don’t even want to take it unless I go on a really adventurous road trip.
