Thanks Neeraj thats a ton of help.

Thats correct, I got it packed in a cardboard box (which I then got bubble wrapped) at airport (Hyderabad — New Delhi) .. And then transported in HRTC Volvo from New Delhi to Manali… Had to leave the boxes at Manali as there was no way of carrying it to Leh… In Leh, there are many cycle shops on the Changspa Road which rent out bicycles .. You can get a cardbord box from them.. It will cost about 500 bucks.. Alternatively you can take assistance from they guys at Gati couriers.. they can pack the bicycle for you at a nominal cost

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
