Hey Arun, have you considered doing Shimla>Kinnaur>Spiti>Kunzum La>Keylong and on to Leh? Would be a lot more rewarding than Shimla>Manali. But I'm not sure whether Kunzum La is open for traffic yet.Hey, there we are 4 of us & we are also having a long trip that is we are also visiting shimla & frm there we r goin to manali then to LEH.
