It's absolutely stunning. Just check the weather before you go...sometimes it is snowing even in the middle of the summer.

Great video Swati...If you wanna enjoy the real beauty of that landscape you need to make a journey from Manali to Leh across Rohtang & Khardungla Pass. it is absolutely breath taking.... See it to believe it tarora@gmal.com

This is a paradise on earth. Swati has done a great job in portraying this place

Just finished 5 weeks in Ladakh state, Khardung La was bathed in blue sky and sunshine. The lower regions enjoyed a day of 30 degrees plus while Khardung La was around 15. Desolate, Lunar, windswept. The permafrost on the top of the mountains glows white, the scene is surreal as u feel your chest tighten slightly with the altitude. The skill of the public bus drivers in this region is fantastic, thanks for a safe journey guys!

ITS NICE TO KHARDUNGLA TOP AGAIN AND AGAIN AS I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINANCE OF THIS SECTOR FOR ALMOST 3 YEARS WHILE COMMANDING A BORDER ROADS UNIT.I AM PROUD OF ALL MEN WHO WORKED WITHOUT COMPLINING TO KEEP THIS AXIS OPEN

Been there recently. Felt truly for the first time that "I was on top of the world" literally and figuratively. If the most inhospitable yet inexplicably fabulous mountain top (there)makes you feel so "small", the brave,bold and valient soldiers there guarding that point make you feel even "smaller". Because as a tourist, one just cannot spend 30 minutes (even in summer), whereas, the soldiers there get posted for 3 months each to be there guarding the area. Hail India and hail the Indian soldiers. Can you believe, there are hardly 5-6 barriers on the entire narrow road to K-Top on the edge side of the road.The road is so narrow and it has extra space to allow second vehicle to over-take only at 4 or 5 places on the entire stretch. As swati rightly said, it is really a 'near death experience' every time when a vehilce comes in the opposite direction. Go with lots of warm clothing and do not fail to cheer our brave soldiers there.

I visited Laddakh in May 2011,Biking on Khardungla is a life changing experience. Nature tests your passion in so many ways becoming violent all of sudden, sunny at times but From the bottom of my heart I can say it's a lifetime experience.
