On the long Manali-Leh road and providing a route across the Baralacha range is the famous Baralacha Pass. The Baralacha Pass is a unique pass situated at a spectacular 16,400 ft above sea level. The pass itself is 8 kilometers long, and is literally the pass "where many roads meet". Here, routes from Zanskar, Ladakh and Lahaul meet, which have for centuries been used by ancient travelers and crossed in all directions. The two great rivers of Lahaul, the Chandra and the Bhaga, also arise from the huge snowfields on opposite sides of the pass.
The trucks are really monsters here.they rule this road.Hats off to the Drivers.

A very well taken shot of a dry land. Not a spot of green is there.
Excellent clarity and colors under the bright sun.
Nice moment captured with two different vehicles crossing cautiously.

Ciao Mrityunjoy, la bellezza di questa foto sta nell'immediatezza della scena ripresa e nella sua aderenza alla realtÓ di tutti i giorni.
Hai rappresentato molto bene quello che i viaggiatori che percorrona questa strada incontrano sul loro cammino senza tanti preziosmi ma esattamente come lo vedono dall'interno della loro auto.
Per questo mi piace perchŔ autentica in ogni suo dettaglio.
Bella la composizione che include a perfezione la scena stradale ed il grandioso paesaggio.
Ottimi anche la nitidezza, contrasto e colori.
Ciao e buona serata

This is a very special and different landscape, at least for me. But nevertheless, it is very good picture and a very interesting view!
