  • High altitude mountain pass. Here you can feel that breathing is not easy. Also you could face headache problem. Nevertheless its a beautiful place. The whole manali leh highway is beautiful where you see different different scenes of nature. In this journey you see snow loaded mountains, lakes, rivers, high passes and many more things.
  • A place unique in landscape but not a destination itself
  • This place is heaven on earth just can't explain in words how beautiful and peaceful it is you need to experience, we were the only visitors at the time of our visit and Snow was very fresh and white with clear sky the best time to visit this place is when Keylong-Leh road opens towards the end of May or early June.
  • Baralacha La | Altitude: 4890 Mtrs Baralacha La or Baralacha Pass (La meaning Pass) is second of the five high mountain passes that comes on Manali – Leh Highway. Baralacha La connects Lahaul district of Himachal Pradesh to Ladakh district of Jammu and Kashmir. At the North West base of Baralacha La range, Bhaga river originates from Suraj or Surya Tal and at South East base, Chandra river originates from Chandratal. Yunam river flows on the Sarchu (Ladakh) side of Baralacha La. There is another famous trekking route which goes to Chandra Tal or Chandratal, either starting from or ending at Baralacha La. You will not find any food or water or accommodation at this pass. After Rohtang Pass, Baralacha Pass is the second major hurdle to cross or open. At least in the early season of Manali – Leh journey, you will certainly witness one or two vehicles either stuck aside or stuck in the middle to traffic jam the road. The ice or snow melting from the slopes, battered by moving traffic either creates deep slush or deep water crossings by washing away the roads. This makes the journey more adventurous and full of challenges on this mighty mountain pass :).. The feeling of passing through this particular pass is a feeling of its own kind and I purely loved it
  • OMG. Best of The Himalaya. 😇😇
