kalpa onwards, the roads and the places get absolutely beautiful.....but get ready for the the worst road on plant earth between the stretch of Rohtang and Manali.

Strongly advice you take a proper SUV for that stretch...

All the best for your remainder of the trip.

cheers,

I agree with you. We did Gurgaon-Srinagar-Leh-Manali-Gurgaon in June this year & the worst Pass crossing (in our opinion) was Rohtang. Tanveer just did a trip to Kunzam & found black tarmac on Rohtang for a kilometer on either side. Too good to last, it'll be gone by the time they open up the roads in April-May!

I have a Safari 4x4 so roads (or lack of them) are not an issue
