Marvelous view of this little village on the route to Rohtang pass from your high POV. The smoke from the road construction work adds drama to the photo.
I remember it very well, on a previous visit to Manali I was stuck over here for 22 hours due to heavy snow before being rescued by the Army. Fascinating place equally beautiful photo. Thanks for sharing.
