Therefore, Srinagar is also known as the “City of Lakhsmi”, or a city which is blessed by the goddess Lakshmi, a city that always prospers.

The earliest of the mentions of the city, states that the word, “Srinagar” comes from the word, “Surya- Nagar”, which means, “Home of Surya” or “city blessed by the Sun God”.

The best time to take a bike trip from Srinagar to Leh is in the Late September, Early October times. Here is a month vise timetable of the highway from Srinagar to Leh:

    •    Mid-May: can be exceedingly inconvenient, due to the highway being subjected to six months of bitter cold, snow and unused.
    •    Early June: the roads being having been cleared only a weeks ago are in a terrible condition, there are a big number of water streams, and lots of slush on the street
    •     Late June: the streets are clear and have an overall better condition
    •    Early July: amazing time to take the journey, because the roads are in a much better state than before
    •    Late July: is when the monsoon starts to set in, which makes the occurrence of landslides quite common. The Amarnath Yatra starts during this time, which makes the highway busy with yatris, and army personnel is increased by a notch.
    •    August: is the worst time to travel on the Srinagar-Leh Highway. The monsoon is in full force. Amarnath Yatra being at its peak, and 15th August is when there is a lot of tension in the air. A lot of security measures will be followed strictly, therefore not letting you have the amount of fun you thought you would.
    •    September: is the best time to go for the Srinagar to Leh bike trip, what with the monsoon gone and the Amarnath Yatra over and done with. The vistas would be at their greenest. But the only downfall is that there would be no snow available.
    •    Early October: the weather is pretty much the same as September, just that the cold starts setting in.
    •    Late October: the weather is stormy, and there is an abundance of snow. The Road is open throughout the entire month but people traveling at the of the month would be faced with terribly cold weather and some wisps of snow.
    •    November: not the best time to take the trip. The tourist season is officially at its end, and the only upside of visiting during this month is the loneliness.

"Srinagar is beautiful more than what we heard. My family also wanted to join the trip but since it was bike trip I could not take them with me. But next season, I will take my whole family also. The entire region was so cold but the natural beauty was really a surprise and one of a kind experience also."

"I was a bit nervous to do the bike trip because I have never done a ride on bullet through off roads or such a great height. But the guides and my fellow team members encouraged me and I started the ride. I remember, many times I was hesitating to continue the ride. But only because of the people around me I did not stop the journey in between. If I had stopped the trip in the middle, it would have been a great loss of my life I think. Such a beautiful place is Ladakh. It is surrounded by the tall peaks everywhere. Only a few people we saw on the journey may be the tribals. We tried the native food from one of the villages, I forgot the name of it. It was so different. The Chai they gave us was also different. But the people were so friendly and happy to see us. They were talking about their village and nowadays, a lot of people are coming to see the place and all. 11 days went like 11 hours I felt, may be because we were riding for long distance. It is a must visit place atleast once in your lifetime."
