A Coimbatore man's amazing photographs capturing his bike journey from Tamil Nadu to Jammu and Kashmir and back has got many internet users impressed and inspired. 

He covered a staggering 11,124 km in his 77-day long solo trip. 

Sharing the album, the user named dopamine86, wrote on Reddit,

"I quit my job early this year and moved back to India with the sole intent of travelling. So with my trusted Thunderbird 500, I rode all the way from Coimbatore to Leh via the West Coast. The ride and the experience cannot be described in words. I stayed for 14 days in Leh and made my way back to Kanyakumari via Central India. I have a lot of memories that will last a lifetime."

The post has received scores of comments from people congratulating him for pursuing a trip that many people only dream of. 

The user revealed that all the pictures on the album were shot with his iPhone, though he also carried a 5D camera on his journey. 

It cost him Rs 1.3 lakh to complete the journey and most of the funds was crowdfunded. "... well actually most of them were relatives and friends." 

He also spent the most on fuel. Responding to a comment on how much fuel was used and the distance covered, the user said he had a 20lt tank. "So I'd fill it up almost every day and would try to cover 300kms or less per day on the plains. I got a mileage of 28-30 kms/lt. Total distance covered was 11,124 kms."
