We started our trip from Manali on a dull and cloudy morning as is evident from my first post of Solang Valley.Our first destination was Keylong.More we started to proceed towards Rohtang, it began to become more and more foggy and hazy even though it was not particularly cold out there.There was a lot of traffic on the way to Rohtang as the pass had just opened that time for the visitors.
Beyond Manali the road crosses the Rohtang Pass (51 kilometers, or 32 miles) at 3,915 meters (12,845 feet) into the barren region of Lahaul.The pass acts as a barrier to the monsoon and the area is similar to the Ladakh region further north. The main town is Keylong, 117 kilometers (73 miles) from Manali.

What a nice place - we missed it all. We could go as far as Gulaba only - not even Marhi. Probably next time.

NIcely taken shot from moving car. I also like to take shots from moving car. It has come up nicely. The curve of road shows the depth of your shot. Hey Dhurjati , lets make a adventurous tour plan to himalaya. We all Himalaya lovers may join the group.
Bye & take care
