Day 9 (Manali-Rohtang Peak)
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم
Clcik the picture for more detail
We are set to rise up towards Rohtang Peak through Rohtang Pass. Its a 2000 m(Yes, 2.0 km) ascension in 4-5 hours on this dangerous road.
Manali is at 2090 m asl and Rohtang highest road is at 3979 m. Every traveler wished to reach Leh from Manali(Manali-Leh Highway) need to jump over this peak to reach the other side. However, this peak is one of the few ascends to Leh, ranging 4000 m to 5300 m asl.
|Beautiful roads and mother nature|
|Shri going to the loo|
|Some parts of the roads are dangerous. One mistake, Himachal Pradesh will be your grave.|
|Hot maggi is always welcomed|
It snowed a little when we arrived. Temperature was about 5-6 degrees celsius.
|He is loving his bike. Great achievement for Bajaj Avenger.|
|Not going anyway bro|
|Thats ice Darshan. Not snow, its freaking hard.|
|At 4 kilometers above sea level.|
|Seriously, 4000 meters asl? Fluffy clouds were so close.|
I got mountain sickness and was so breathless I did not join them up to the the peak and lay down between the rock protected from the strong wind.
|Again, hot maggi never bores for cold and hungry people.|
Today was our last day in Manali. Gave back our rented bikes. 800 rupees for each. Then we head back to our hotel.
Akshita and Amit had to leave to Shimla at night. It was a sad moment being apart and knowing we won't be meeting again. Thanks guys for joining us. See you somewhere.
