The drive near by Asan Barrage and between Nahan and Kala Amb I liked the most.

I started journey solo by Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorcycle at 11 am from Rishikesh reached Chandigarh at 6 pm.

Yes, I drive slow most of the time 40 kilometer per hour. Few times I had to stop to inquire directions from locals.
