Altitude Charts: Manali to Leh Highway with Khardung La and More

Here are some altitude charts of Ladakh in the Indian Himalayas drawn with data taken from my Garmin 60Cx GPS on my motorcycle trip through the “Abode in the Sky” in May/June 2013. The altitude signboards put up by the army are off by a few hundred feet but here it is accurate to within a few feet. Scroll down for the route map, a chart in meters and photos from the trip.

Charts from the Americas, Gasoline Prices and Distance Ridden

Here are a few charts to visualize some data.

This is a comparison of the price of petrol in the countries of the Americas. I did not ride through Canada or Venezuela, but they’re just thrown in for reference and it’s fun to see the ‘free’ petrol in Hugo’s land. Europe is also shown just for comparison.

This data is from when I rode through these countries in 2010/2011. First bar is USD/Liter (a global standard to compare fuel prices) and then USD/Gallon for y’all ya ‘merkins 😉

This next chart shows how many kilometers (miles) were ridden on my trip through Latin America.
