Manali-Leh road is open only for 2-3 months, between
July and September. This overland route had become an
increasingly popular way to go to Leh. The advantage
of the road route is that one sees an amazing panorama
of nature 's beauty and also gets gradually acclimatized
to breathing in the high altitude atmosphere, which
is a pre-requisite to staying at Leh. An unforgettable
experience as the road traverses a variety of landscapes
and one can hardly put the camera away. Along the way
nature impresses with awesome mountain passes of 17-18,000
ft., long stretches of flat, cold desert without a trace
of vegetation, amazing natural rock formations and deep
gorges of the rivers Beas, Chandra, Bhaga and Indus.
