The high-altitude Manali Leh Road Trip is a journey along dangerous mountain roads cutting through harsh and rugged Himalayan terrain. En route, you will be rewarded with ethereal scenery, a quaint mountain culture and a travelling experience paralleled by few other journeys. Imagine traversing 487 km along a rain-washed, avalanche-eroded and precariously narrow road across gravity defying mountain passes, all the while braving nature in its most sublime yet treacherous avatar. That, in a nutshell, is what the great crossing from Manali to Leh is all about. Two full days of exposing yourself to the perilous outdoors, testing your nerves, motoring skills, patience and determination. And at the end of it all, finding yourself cruising into the ridge-lined lunar valley of Leh, beckoning weary travellers like the mythical Shangri La of the mountains. Sounds like your cup of tea? Then buckle up!
