This day would be a bit relaxed one so no need to start early morning. Just like the day before the ride would be a bit warm.

Entering the chamba valley we reach khajjiar which has a small beautiful lake in the centre and is surrounded by thick forest all around. We halt here for a night.

Day 4. Khajjiar to bairagarh.

We would be travelling in Chamba district today. Not a very hectic day but a beautiful ride with less trafic and minimum tourists.

Day 5. Bairagarh to Killar

By now everyone is well aquainted to the bike so lets start travelling on sum bumpy slippery roads. We start our climb up towards sach pass.

After reaching sach pass we now prepare for downhill all the way to killar.

Day 6. Killar to Kishtwar

This would be the most adventurous day. Travelling through the road that the faint hearted don’t dare as there is mountain on one side and thousand feet drop on the other with no railing or safety in between. To make things more challenging the road is filled with dust, rock and mud. Travelling slowly and safely we reach towards Kishtwar and halt for the night.
