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 vibrant colors of that high altitude land is verymuch remarkable due to it geological compositions.
The Lahaul-Spiti is considered to be the classical ground for Indian geology as evidenced by the presenceof a complete sequence of geological formation dating from the pre-Cambrian to the cretaceous periodwith short breaks in carboniferous and Jurassic periods and by the occurrence fossils of ancient vascularplants.
The soil may be calledthe alpine sward as the upper stratum of the earth and vegetable mould is filled with in completelydecomposed roots of grasses and other herbaceous plants.
Thank You & Merry Christmas to All.

un'altra splendisa rappresentazione del Nord dell'India, tra paesaggi maestosi e colori forti quale la natura delle zone pił elevate riesce a dare con la purezza della sua atmosfera.
Ti ringrazio degli auguri di Natale.
A te auguro una buona giornata

After lot of planning I was able to visit Ladakh this year in October. I opted for the car ride from Manali to Leh instead of the easy flight from Delhi to Leh just because I wanted to enjoy and relish views like this that you show us over here. Isn't the place magical?
Fantastic shot capturing the harsh terrain of this road. The lorry shows us the vastness of this wilderness. Darun chobi...khub bhalo laglo.
