While I was concentrating on tackling the valley curves, my pillion had most of the roles to play. Here are some of the snaps taken by my better half across our journey from Manali to Leh.
Manali is so different during monsoon and summers. Lush green valleys and charismatic mountains with melting ice attracts the tourist the most.
Manali Valley from Vashisht village hilltop
Heavy traffic @ Rohtang Pass. Ideal time to start for Rohtang is early morning before 5.
Khokser – The descent from Rohtang to Khokser was extremely tedious. The roads are filled with mud puddles and few water streams will make driving even more challenging. But on the base, the valley has some decent dhabas serving delicious indian foods.
Bridge over Bhaga river
Through the green country side, enroute to Keylong
One road and all types of vehicles – Bikes, SUVs, TTs , Trucks and Nano 🙂
Everytime when you feel that this part of the journey was most scenic, the nature throws another breath-taking glimpse of its awe.
The route to Baralacha la makes you a tougher being – mentally and physically. This is our biggest water stream and crossing on bikes was no cake walk
I just loved the name – ZingggZingggBar
The Zanskar valley – King of all hair pin bend roads
Our first snowfall experience. Thanks to Decathlon windcutter and water proof jackets
Top of the world – Tangla La. Its the world’s second highest motorable road
Hurray!!!! The destination is nearer
Crossing Leh Indian Army Regiment bunkers. Proud feeling engulfed us!!
