Manali Leh Highway

Filed under: General — admin @ 2:38 pm

Manali to Keylong.

It took me ages to get a taxi to the bus stand this morning. I had to walk nearly half the way. Luckily the bus was not crowded. I had a whole 3-seater to myself. It started off very misty and foggy but cleared up later on.

As we got higher and higher, the views of the mountains were starting to overwhelm me with their awesomeness. They are really huge and steep.

Going up towards the Rohtang Pass, the road twisted and turned all the way up. The mountains were jumping out of the clouds.

Trucks and buses were passing us by inches. We frequently had to stop and go back and forth to get past each other.

On the other side of the pass, the road turned to dirt and there were broken rocks all over.

We stopped at Kokasar for some breakfast so I had a chai and omlette.
