1. Leh – Manali Highway, Himalaya Mountains, India

Travel the Himalayas on four wheels by driving all 479km of northern India’s Leh-Manali Highway. Its highest elevation is Tanglang La mountain pass at 5328m, and on average you’re two to three miles above sea level at all times on the route.
The drive takes a day by jeep, and connects Leh in Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir state to Manali in Himachal Pradesh state. It’s only open from May to October, when the Indian army clears snow off the dirt gravel road.

About admin

I would like to think of myself as a full time traveler. I have been retired since 2006 and in that time have traveled every winter for four to seven months. The months that I am "home", are often also spent on the road, hiking or kayaking. I hope to present a website that describes my travel along with my hiking and sea kayaking experiences.
