“I loved to visit Leh via Manali. It was a wonderful experience to pass through many passes like Changla Pass, Baralacha Pass, Lachulangla Pass, Khardungla Pass and many more. Khardungla Pass is the highest motorable road and is 39 km from Leh. Pangong Lake is another attraction in Leh to visit. It took 5 hours from Leh to reach there and when we reached there we were happy to see crystal clear water and able to see 7 colours of the water as it changes.”
