    That certainly is pretty remote. I used to think Manali a bit to the south was pretty remote. The road there in the 90's was pretty rugged but it was still a road. But things can slowly change - the road was much better in 2005 when I last visited. Even got there in an Ambassador. Just seemed like a highway after travelling the previous week on a very dodgy road in Unteranchal. Building and maintaining roads in that part of India is a major exercise.

    Remember seeing kids there in the 90's sliding down slopes literally on planks of wood.

    still regret not going to Leh, Ladakh in 89, had flight in booked and was aiming to overland back to Srinagar but travelling companion didn't so opted for a week hanging in the Dalai Lamas village instead. And also not heading into Zanskar in 98, cough cough those side valleys off the Kulu got too much attention, mmm Malana cream dreaming
