During this time Azad's Team members faced difficult weather condition, dangerous roads and difficult terrain.
According to Sachin Pawar, the National head of Social Security & Selfdefense & Coordinator of this Tiranga Yatra of the organization, It which started on August 30, was successfully and timely completed by all the members without a Scratch. All the 23 motorcycles involved in the yatra, besides the support vehicle and the backup vehicle, carried the tricolor flag.

On the second day the Tiranga Yatra Bike Rally reached Nubra and on the third day reached Pengang Lake. The team members faced extremely bad weather, dangerous roads during these two days of journey. While reaching Nubra, the independent members made access to Khardungla, one of the world's highest accessible Road. There also the enthusiastic slogans of patriotism attracted the attention of the army personnel and tourists present there. In the final leg of the journey after returning from Pangong Lake to Leh, the Azad members covered a distance of 280 km in a day to reach their last stop, Kargil. After night's rest in Kargil, next day reached Kargil War Memorial located in Drass sector and paid homage to the brave sons of the country.

On the last day of the yatra, the independent members traveled a long distance of 340 km in a day from Dras sector to Leh. The visit was witnessed by the local military officers and lauded the innovative effort of the youth infused with patriotism. The beauty of the tricolor yatra was that wherever the military convoy was found on the way, the bike riders stood on the roadside and saluted the officers and jawans of the Indian Army who laid down their lives for the defense of the country.
