8 Passes + Cliff Hanger Road Trip

Great travelogue.. amazing narration and awesome pictures.!!

I am planning to visit Padri pass and Chattargala Pass (After inspired by your travelogue).
Do you know roughly when both of these passes are open?
I am planning in mid of march but not sure whether the passes will be opened by that time or not.

Any recommendation from your side to visit some of the passes in himachal during march month?

Our trip was from 30 May to 10 Jun 2019, and all was good,
so i can only assume that even 1 May would be equally good.
but Mar seems too early, cause even in 1st or 2nd week Mar,
you do get some big Western Disturbances that bring the snowfall.
So suggest delay to a day in May last week.

Happy Landings.

learn to give way to head on traffic,
you have peace of mind,
and you don't waste time.
Just take a look at how many vehicles are in this short clip.
and we gave way to all.

When everyone is shouting don't go , don't go,
well,
a Fortuner will go,
Every other vehicle no matter what type and size,
got stuck here and was towed out by JCB.

We spent the night at Keylong
next morning to Zanskar Sumdo.

This is where we took a left for Zanskar Sumdo,
at a U bend over Darcha.
and left the Manali - Leh highway behind us.
