Pang to Leh

On the second day of our journey from Lahaul to Leh, we travelled from Pang to Leh. Here are some photos from that stretch of the journey.

Winding Road to More Planes: This was few kms after we had left our camp at Pang.

More Planes: After Pang the road to Leh passes through a flat area at an average altitude of 5100 meters. This area is known as More Planes (Pronounced Moray) and it stretches for approx 50 km.

Caught in the act

Ascent to Taglang La (The highest point on the Manali-Leh road)

Tanglangla: The highest point on the Manali Leh road at an altitude of 5360 meters

Workers from the state of Bihar working on a road near Tanglangla

Rumtse: Few kms after we crossed the first village in Ladakh, on the way to Leh.

Upshi: This is where one gets to see the first glimpse of the mighty river Indus

Thicksey Monsatery: 35 km before Leh

Finally at Leh: Gang with the driver of the Van (Kusum)
