Ladakh Road Trip Day 4: Jispa – Leh [335 kms] :This would be the longest day of this Manali to Leh road trip. Today we will cross the high altitude passes of Baralachala & Lachangla, along with mighty Skyangchu thang (earth’s biggest and highest plateau with a stretch of 42 kms).At Baralachala, you will be getting the view of calm Surajtaal which is also the source of Bhaga River (Himalayan River).The river then meets river Chandra that has its origin from Chandrataal in Spiti Valley at Tandi (crossed a day before). From Tandi this is called Chenab (locally called Chandrabhaga). If you wanted to witness Snow covered Surajtaal, it is favourable to take this journey in June. We will then cross the mighty Tanglalng La and start descending towards the Indus Valley. By late evening, give yourself some rest by checking in to guest house in Leh.
