For smooth and good experience you should start this trip in the month of June because the highways are opened during these days, coz of weather you may also expect the snow on the route and we were so fortunate last year that we experienced everything what we wanted to exactly thought. First of all in your voyage you’ve to reach to manali and there are so many ways to reach there.you can take the bus, railways, taxies etc. Your journey will be started moving towards hills where high altitude pastures are wearing green look after melting of the snow. Dozens of herds of sheep and goats are moving northwards.
In manali the journey should be started at early in the morning so that you can reach Gulaba Barrier at earliest otherwise due to traffic and weather we can stuck in midway. You can take some chill pill and relax here coz our next destination will be Rohtang Pass and Rohtang Pass is the most difficult task of this journey. So from Gulaba Barrier you have to reach Rohtang Pass. The en route is so uneven and so worst on this highway from 40 km ahead of Rohtang Pass. with zero traffic yet it takes 1 hour to go .
This 40 km road is flanked by the picturesque beauty of snow covered mountains, grasslands and the Beas river that washes away its landscapes, waterfalls and the mesmerizing view of the valley.if you really want to enjoy and explore the nature’s beauty then come here by bike or car. There is a place called Tandi get your tank full with fuels coz now you will not get any petrol station till 350 kms. But there are options to get the petrol in Sarchu from the local people at higher prices. And in this trip you should have bsnl network or airtel postpaid connection coz after Manali the network activates in Keylong. When you cross this town jispa will come to your way and after this onwards your path if going to be started changing.
Jispa is a village on this route. There are many options to accommodate yourself. And if it is your first day of your trip then you’re recommended to halt here for the night as there wont be any options available to stay after Jispa, until Sarchu. It is a very scenic and beautiful village coz in Keylong you will see some traffic of tourists and that town is busy . There is also a mechanic shop at Jispa if you are traveling with bike then you can ask anyone about the shop. After crossing Jispa, you have to reach Darcha and the roads are pretty good And You will have to get yourself registered at the check post here.
Now You will reach beautiful Deepak taal after Darcha, now you should take a kit kat break at any dhaba near the lake and click the beauty in your eyes or cameras.after Deepak Taal, the ascent towards Baralacha La comes. Baralacha La is where you will face the snow again, after Rohtang La; but in this you have to be lucky and the snow is all melted, it remains covered with snow through out the year.
Sarchu is a army base and a major stoppage point on this route. It has many options of accommodations and is a good spot to spend the night. Here you can experience AMS(Acute Mountain Sickness) for the first time in this region. Road conditions will be changing from bad to good to bad again. Right after Sarchu, path of Gata Loops start. Gata Loops is a series of 21 hairpin bends that brings you to the top of Nakeela La, you will keep moving at an altitude of 14000 feet. these loops are said to be haunted and No one stops at Gata Loops unnecessarily.
After Nakeela you have to cross Lachung la, this is very easy pass to cross. Right after Lachung la you have to reach pang and after crossing approximate 4 km you your eyes will be pleased by wonderful & spectacular sight of Moore Plain, a plateau sitting in the lap of Himalayas. Here we can take photographs with the nature’s beauty and yaks sheeps and you will not feel tired to praise the beauty of nature.
After this plains we have to move towards Tanglang’ la the 5th and last highest mountain pass. If you have not experienced Acute Mountain sickness on this route so far, this is the place where you will definitely suffer from it coz the wind speed will be increasing and snow will be visible and the road and it is many degenerated roads on this ascent which makes crossing this pass tough, not the height.
After Tanglang’la the roads are much better than most cities, you will thank to BRO for this.
Now you will feel much better from AMS when you enter in Upashi the first town in leh.
Take a immediate tea/coffee break at Upshi and you are on your way to Leh, which is hardly an hour’s ride from here
But this can also be your last stop of your journey.
