Driving to Leh was one on top of my "Things to do before you die" list. Been planning it for long, but it never materalized and finally when it did, the plan got finalized just about 10 days before.

Think before you go....

Driving from Manali to Leh is TOUGH. and long. You need to be physically fit for it. Aslo there are soo many variables, that you cannot plan it down to a pin, even days can go here and there, so be prepared to be flexible. You need an SUV, if u are a good driver, drive yourself as it saves you a seat and personally, i will never trust my life on any driver other than myself.

Having said this, once you are through it, you will feel really great. Here is a photo of me, with my "prize" after the trip.
