Manali to Leh is probably the most spoken about road trip in India. All adventure seekers dream of embarking on a journey on the gorgeous Leh-Manali highway that is replete with number of shades of nature’s beauty. While the landscape looks like it has been painted by a veteran, the 485kms of road can test any adventure junky’s patience and determination. The rugged terrains and the bumpy ride may give the tyres of your vehicles a wobble or two and the long hours of driving might freeze your knuckles BUT in the end my friends it is all worth it!

The Manali-Leh route is the most common road taken by adventurers; however the choice of vehicle may vary. The most comfortable being the jeep safari, whereas the most challenging can be cycling.
