On Manali to Leh Highway, published earlier on my blog, there were few articles. Now to understand them all in a single location I would like to make it a Manali – Leh ladakh Highway Travel Guide along with the Manali Leh Highway tourist information list.
Manali – Leh Highway is without any doubt the most adventurous and the most magnificent of all India’s highways. All lovers of adventure dream of journeying at least once in their lives on the 474 KM long Manalí – Leh road trip.
I strongly believe that everyone who loves to travel, whether it is an adventure love or a lover of nature or any form, needs and must at least once in their lives travel Manali – Leh Highway. I am fortunate enough personally to have traveled several times during the last ten years, as of 2018, on a journey through Manali Leh. And in the future, I want to do it again many times.
The road in many places is desolate, so it is best to plan the journey and get the most information before going to Ladakh.
I hope to find all my friends or colleagues complete information or everything they want to know about Manali – Leh Highway only on one site with this extensive guide on the Manali Leh road tour. I also fusioned in this article the major places to visit on the route to Manali Leh.
