Journey through my better half’s lens

Everytime when you feel that this part of the journey was most scenic, the nature throws to you another glimpse of its awe.

While I was concentrating onĀ 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.

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.

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
