Manali-Leh Road Even ten years ago, this epic Himalayan journey, crossing over five high-attitude passes and the Pir Panjal, Great Himalayan and Zanskar ranges was a risky endeavour. Today, driving enthusiasts wait with bated breath for the Rohtang La to open for a jaunt to Leh. The landscape remains as beguiling as ever: from the verdant Kulu valey to the precipices of the Bhaga valley, and then the surreal world of the Morey Plains, and the altitude, touching almost 5,000m, is as lung-busting as ever. See kiangs and meet Changpa nomads, look out for the great pinnacle of Pang and the salt lake of Tso Kar. It’s the glory of the Himalaya in one phantasmagoric drive.
