  • Crossed 2nd Highest mountain pass which is situated on Leh Manali Highway. In month of June it still had lot of snow and it opens to traffic sometime in first week of June.  more »
  • From Leh to Manali was night minibus ahead stage, so naturally even over the 5000 m in the middle of the did see some pass anything to leave. That is not a number when you go to have a permit in the Northern Ladakh area exceeding 5000 m pass over, admiring the scenery especially regrets. There is shared taxi and Leh from Manali through the day.

  • The road to Tanglangla pass is quite motorable and the view it gives is very exotic. It is the first pass that needs to be crossed when you start from Leh towards Manali on the Leh-Manali highway.  more »
