Manali – Baralacha La Pass – Udaipur
Today, we will start our journey from Manali towards Baralacha La Pass. At an elevation of 16,043 ft, the high mountain pass connects Lahul to Ladakh. It is about 145 km from Manali, i.e., a 4-hour drive. Being paced in one of the highest mountain ranges, this pass offers a magnificent view of three different mountain ranges: Pir Panjal, Zanskar, and the Great Himalayas. After spending some time there, we will move towards Udaipur and stop for an overnight stat at campsite by Tethys on the Move.
Udiapur – Miyar Valley
Today, after breakfast, we will head towards Miyar Valley. Miyar Valley is about 35 km from Udaipur. This valley is very remote and fairly inaccessible to outside world in comparison to other offbeat places and tourist destinations in Lahaul & Spiti. Being a remote location, this valley is bliss to off-roaders. From open green meadows to the stark brown alpine rocks of Zanskar, the whole route is so beautiful. After spending a few hours there, we will head back to our campsite for an overnight stay at Udaipur.
Udiapur – Trilokinath – Manali
Today, after having breakfast, we will move towards our next destination – Trilokinath Temple. Trilokinath is around 11 km from Udaipur. Trilokinath is one of the most important religious sites in India and considered sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists. The place is calm, peaceful and is one of the most revered places of worship for locals of Lahaul Valley.
What more lies in the day ahead is a chance to admire open sand basins of the Chandrabhaga River that perfectly fall in perspective with the sky-piercing peaks in the backdrop.
We will drive through the iconic ‘Atal Tunnel, Rohtang’ to reach Manali in the evening for an overnight stay at a cosy hotel.
Today after breakfast, we will depart for our homes. This is the end of our fun-filled and adventurous road journey.
