Day 1

Delhi – Manali (570 kms/13 hrs)
Start the drive from Delhi to reach Manali. Check in at the hotel. Evening free to relax and have leisure time and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the mall road.
Overnight in Manali.

Day 2

Enjoy the local sightseeing at Manali. Visit the age old Hadimba Temple and enjoy the view from Naggar Castle. Enjoy traditional Himachali food in the small hut like cottages amidst breathtaking view of the Jana Falls or simply relax by the shore of the never ending gurgle of the Beas.
Overnight in Manali.

Day 3

Manali – Jispa via Rohtang Pass (140 kms/6 hrs)
Make an early start at 4 AM (packed breakfast provided by the hotel) and drive to Jispa, a small village in the Lahaul region. En route, you will get the first glimpse of the Rohtang Pass, located at 13,050 feet. Dry and very cold, it is surrounded by high mountains on all sides, the Great Himalayas to the north, the Pir Panjal to the South and the Spiti-Chandra watershed to the east. The barren landscape and sparse vegetation lends a magnificent charm to this otherwise bleak region. It is important to leave at 4AM to avoid getting caught up in the tourist traffic at Rohtang Pass. On way, stop at Keylong village from where you can see the awe-inspiring Shingri Glacier in all its majesty. Have lunch at the famous Koksar Dhaba and continue driving towards Jispa after a quick stop for refuelling at Tandi.
Overnight in Jispa.

Day 4

Take a break in Jispa today to acclimatize and to get ready for the steep climb in the coming days. Venture out on a small trek to Gemur Monastery or just lay back and relax. You can drive your vehicle at the banks of Bhaga river for lunch in the cool surroundings of Jispa.
Overnight in Jispa.

Day 5

Jispa – Leh (330 kms/10 hrs)
After a good nights’ rest, start at 5AM. Get set for a long drive on high altitudes. Feel the raw power of the Himalayas as the road towards the mighty Baralacha-La Pass (16,049 feet above sea level), Pang Valley and Tanglangla Pass (17585 feet above sea level) beckons you forward. From Jispa, the drive is along the Bhaga River up towards its source, and then to the Baralacha-La Pass. The terrain is rugged, the air crisp, and the villagers here chaste and simple. It could be another world altogether. Stop for lunch at Pang and reach Leh by late evening.
Overnight in Leh.

Day 6

It is time to give your nerves the much deserved rest. Spend a relaxing day in Leh, or the roof of the world as it is known. Visit the Shanti Stupa, an imposing structure situated on a hill. From here, enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Leh town. Also check out the relatively modern Shankar Monastery, which is closely associated with the Spituk Monastery.
Overnight in Leh.

Day 7

Leh – Pangong Lake – Leh (320 kms/10 hrs)
Start early at 5 AM (packed breakfast provided by the hotel) to drive to Pangong Lake, situated at an altitude of 14,271 feet above sea level, in the northeast of Leh. The bare rolling hills interspersed with dusty valleys are the setting for the spectacular lakes in the area. En route, stop at Thiksey monastery for early morning prayers. Beyond Thiksey village, there is nothing but the extreme mountain ranges as far as the eye can see.
The second stop is the Changla Pass (17,350 ft.), which could test ones lungs, for the lack of oxygen. Drive on till you reach Pangong Lake, a tourist paradise and of great geological significance. Part of the lake runs through the Indo-Chinese border. Enjoy lunch next to the sparkling blue waters of the Lake and reach Leh by late evening.
Overnight in Leh.

Day 8

Leh – Khardungla Top (90 kms/4 hrs)
