ROAD TO LADHAK      

DELHI-(VIA CHANDIGARH)-NALAGARH-MANALI-JISPA-SARCHU-LEH-DELHI

Introduction
The road to Ladhak is the highest motorable road in the world and has some breathtaking views. You cross the northeastern Himanchal Pradesh and Lahaul valley via the Rohtang pass. The landscape keeps changing dramatically from green valleys to dry deserts and coloured mountains. Even the rivers change colours from aqua green to blue as you approach higher altitude. It is interesting to see the distinct cultures of Himanchal and Ladhak. Accommodation is basic and comfortable in most of these areas. We will be using tents in Jispa and Sarchu. The unspoiled beauty of these mountains is unparalled and the lifestyle of the inhabitants untouched by modern age. Very few people travel to these parts and it remains pristine.

Jewels of Information
