Spiti-Manali adventure: Challenging conditions


There were challenges a plenty all through the adventure. None more than the drive from Kumjun La to Gramphu. Here is a video that will give you a fair idea of what we went through.

Frequently we encountered busses and other large vehicle head-on on the narrow mountain roads. This called for backing off and careful maneuvering by all vehicles. Here’s a video of one such face to face encounter.

The road conditions at several sections were challenging, both narrow at times and also rough, muddy and stony roads. This video will give you a feel of the conditions.

At times we needed to navigate carefully past landslide prone areas and zones where falling rocks and shooting stones are common.  On this occasion we had to traverse a zone where a major landslide had taken place just a day earlier. Thirteen precious lives were lost and a bus a few other vehicles washes over the mountain side by falling debris.

Here are a few more photos randomly taken of some of our encounters on the mountains.
