Manali to Leh. The ultimate safari. Taking you across all the ranges of the Great Himalayas, starting from the Pir Panjal and crossing the exciting Rohtang Pass. On through the barren coloured rock formations of Lahaul to the grand cross road pass of Bara lacha, which drops you into the high plains of Sarchu and onwards through the deep gash of the Chumkyal to the expanses of Pang where wild ass still roam and the shepeards of changspa can be seen with their herds. A timeless tableau evocative of the times of the marauding hoards of Chingez khan.
The lake at Tsokar is the breeding ground for Brahmini Ducks, black cranes, bar headed geese and many smaller birds, also see the whistling marmots basking in the sun and diving into their burrows at your approach.
From Tsokar you cross the Tanglangla pass at 5292 mts, making it one of the highest motorable passes. At each juncture of this journey the terrain changes and you find more and more awe in the amazing landscapes that you drive through.
It is a must do once in your life.
