Here's a car trip in the opposite direction (from Kishtwar anyway), if you want a lot of excitement -

Other than that, the more staid way would be to head to Punjab and approach from the south.

Manali to Jammu via Kishtwar

Ok. Here is an alternate route. It will take lesser time and seems more exiciting.

I am dividing the whole into sections and need suggestions/correction regarding each. suggestions for
1. road condition
2. elevation gain and distance (keeping in mind the cycle ride)
3. food availability
4. place to stay (including camping ground)
5. where I should break the journey in the following stretches as they might not feasible

A. Manali to Tandi Bridge

Have been on this stretch.

Manali to Marhi - 33kms - steady climb
Marhi to Rohtang Pass - 18 kms - steady climb
Rohtang to Gramphu - 15 kms - decent
Gramphu to Kokhsar - 5.5 kms - decent
Kokhsar - Sissu - 15 kms - decent
Sissu - Tandi - 25 kms - decent

sorted out after reading http://neerajjaatji.blogspot.in/2013...ycle-trip.html

B. Tandi Bridge to Udaipur
47 kms - easy route

based on http://www.tarungoel.in/2012/05/27/t...ipur-gulabgar/

C. Udaipur - Killar - Ghangit
78 kms

based on http://www.tarungoel.in/2012/05/30/t...dge-at-killar/

D. Ghanghit - Kishtwar
113 kms

E. Kishtwar - Udhampur
168 kms

F. Udhampur - Jammu
65kms

so what I am thinking is below. Are these feasible or am I overthinking?

Day 1. Manali to Gramphu ~ 65-66 kms

Day 2. Gramphu to Udaipur ~ 90 kms

Day 3. Udaipur to Killar ~80 kms

Day 4. Killar-Ghangit-Sohal ~46kms

Day 5. Sohal - Kishtwar ~75 kms

Day 6. Kishtwar to Doda ~58 kms

Day 7. Doda to Udhampur ~112 kms

Day 8. Udhampur to Jammu ~80 kms

Day 9 and 10 : spare days

cont...

Alternate route to what? You're still taking the Dangerous Road upto Kishtwar as in the thread I pointed you to.

A
I wouldn't describe Koksar to Tandi Bridge as a descent - mostly flat along the Chandra river with minor ups and downs.

Day 1 - You can certainly camp at Gramphu if you like, but I remember only a small dhaba there, although that was a good while ago. I suggest to carry on the 5.5 km to Koksar where there are more eateries and a PWD GH.


P.S. I also suggest to PM Paleface with a link to this thread. Apart from his drive last year, he's also done cycle trips in the past in other areas.
