From La to La Leh Manali Highway | Ep14 Ladakh Road Trip
Hello Friends. Presenting fourteenth part of our Leh Ladakh Road Trip series covering our return journey via Leh Manali Highway from Lachung La to Nakee La.
We started our descend from 5065 meter high Lachung La through snowy roads with several bad patches and water from the melting snow flowing on the road. After descending for around 6 Kms we reached the valley floor through which a water stream was running.
There was some dhaba tents near the water stream in which night stay option was also available. Some calls this water stream as Wishkey Nala. However there was no Wishkey in the water stream and no board to certify the claim.
Ascend to Nakee La started soon once we crossed the water stream. Nakee La is located at a height of 4739 Meters above MSL and with this pass our drive to cross 5000+ metre MSL also ended. Road to Nakee La was also not in good condition apart from few kilometers before the pass.
This video covers our journey upto this point. Now enjoy the video from beginning to end to know about our Leh Ladakh India Tour in detail.
Hello Friends. Presenting fifteenth part of our Leh Ladakh Road Trip series covering our return journey via Leh Manali Highway from Nakee La to Sarchu.
We started our descend from Nakee La through snowy roads however unlike Pang to Nakee La route, we were welcomed with good roads baring 1 or 2 bad patches.
We soon reached the top of Gata loops which as 21 loops or hairpin bends that brings you down from 4667 meters to 4201 meters in 10.3 kilometers. There is a ghost in Gata Loops and watch the video to know the detailed story behind the ghost. We offered water bottle to the ghost at 3rd bend of Gata Loops. Once we descended we started driving along Tsarap Chu or Tsarap river which is a tributary of Zanskar river.
Next point was the bridge over Whiskey Nala or rivulet and then we crossed bridge of Brandy Nala followed by bridge of Twig Twig Nala. These names along with the wonderful views all around actually intoxicates you.
Soon we reached Sarchu, a major halt point with several tent options for stay, at a height of 4290 meters. Sarchu is also the border post of Ladakh and Himachal. As it was only 3 PM when we reached Sarchu, we decided to cross Baralacha La and stay at Jispa. We were not keen in staying in Sarchu as only dhaba tents are available and work was going on in other tents and were not ready for stay.
However, we were not allowed to go further citing a traffic jam at Baralacha La top. We were stranded there with no assurance from police about when the jam will be cleared.
This video covers our journey upto this point. Watch my next video to find out what happened to us next and have we succeeded in our plan or not. Now enjoy the video from beginning to end to know about our Leh Ladakh India Tour in detail.
