We embarked on a one-of-a-kind Journey with some old patients and trusted friends on a Spinal Health Awareness Bike Expedition. We started our Journey from Mumbai to Srinagar and took to our motorbikes from Srinagar> Zojila La pass (11649 𝑭𝑻)> Drass (2𝒏𝒅 𝑪𝒐𝒍𝒅𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝑰𝒏𝒉𝒂𝒃𝒊𝒕𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆 𝑷𝒍𝒂𝒄𝒆 𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑾𝒐𝒓𝒍𝒅)> Kargil> Leh> Via Khardung-La (17982𝑭𝑻, 𝑯𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝑴𝒐𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆 𝑷𝒂𝒔𝒔 𝑰𝒏 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑾𝒐𝒓𝒍𝒅)> Nubra Valley> Hunder> Via Silk Route >Pangong Lake (𝑯𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝑺𝒂𝒍𝒕 𝑾𝒂𝒕𝒆𝒓 𝑳𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝒊𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑾𝒐𝒓𝒍𝒅)> Via Changla Pass (17688𝑭𝑻, 2𝒏𝒅 𝑯𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒆𝒔𝒕 𝑴𝒐𝒕𝒐𝒓𝒂𝒃𝒍𝒆 𝑷𝒂𝒔𝒔 𝑰𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑾𝒐𝒓𝒍𝒅)> Thiskit> Leh covering a distance of 𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟔𝐤𝐦.
Enroute we spoke to many, heard their stories, made them aware and showed them how a healthy Spine can change your outlook on Life. It makes you unstoppable. We were felicitated by locals for our movement to create a healthier nation through our Spinal Health Ride.
The journey had not only bumpy roads but also crossing of some streams and treacherous routes, navigating through difficult terrains. The high altitude also brought with it dramatically reduced levels of oxygen at the peaks. It was sheer strength of our hearts that kept us going, we wanted to create history, to create spinal health awareness and without glorifying 𝘼𝙯𝙖𝙙𝙞 𝙠𝙖 𝘼𝙢𝙧𝙞𝙩 𝙈𝙖𝙝𝙤𝙩𝙨𝙖𝙫 it was incomplete. We sang slogans of Bharat Mata ki Jai infusing the love of nation in the hearts of each and every one present there. We owe a lot to this motherland and in an attempt to give back the love we have received;
