The Highest Jeep Safari in the World
The Manali-Leh road is open only for 2-3 months, between July and
September, every year before the snows cover it up or wash away the road.
This overland route had become an increasingly popular way to go to Leh. The
advantage of the road route is that one sees an amazing panorama of nature
's beauty and also gets gradually acclimatized to breathing in the high
altitude atmosphere, which is a pre-requisite to staying at Leh. An
unforgettable experience as the road traverses a variety of landscapes and
one can hardly put the camera away. Along the way nature impresses with
awesome mountain passes of 17-18,000 ft., long stretches of flat, cold
desert without a trace of vegetation, amazing natural rock formations and
deep gorges of the rivers Beas, Chandra, Bhaga and finally Indus. From the
snowclad mountains, when the snows melt, one sees beautiful waterfalls and
gurgling crystal clear mountain streams. Along the streams and rivers are
human habitations with pockets of rich cultivated green fields, fruit
orchards and wild exotic plants used for preparing herbal medications.
