PROJECT-Trip to Leh by Rtn Dr S S Makkar

The trip to Leh was planned with following objectives

1. Spread Rotary awareness

2. Promote cycling as environmental friendly mode of transport

3. Contributions towards "save earth"

4. Health promotion by physical activity

To achieve these objectives, started the trip on 8th of July, flagged off by club members (RCS). Reached Manali late night by tempo traveller. After acclimatisation ride on 9th, commenced the cycle expedition on 10th. Our expedition was flagged off from Manali by local MLA Mr Govind Thakur. Enroute met and interacted with different kinds of people and made them aware about the rotary and how it is "making a difference" in the lives of people.

It took us around nine days, passing through the difficult terrains to finally reach our destination "Leh" on 18th July evening. At Leh, we received a warm welcome from the Chairman, executive council, Leh, Dr Sonam Dawa Lonpo, who was also a likeminded personality and promoted cycling as an environmental friendly mode of transport. We gave him "The rotary prayer" as a token and he felicitated us. It was a wonderful and a lifetime experience for us.
