Leh - Manali Highway

The long stretch of barren land piled with snow and flanked by majestic mountains is how best you can describe the Leh - Manali highway. Situated at an elevation of about 3962.4 mt above sea level, the highway connects four beautiful destinations namely Manali, Zanskar valley, Lahaul and Spiti valley. It is one of the roads that every traveller should take atleast once in their lifetime.

It is a pleasant drive once you hit the Bhiwandi-Nasik Highway. The road from Bhiwandi to Nasik in simple terms implies sheer enjoyment because of the sweeping corners, long stretches with recently rebuild paths. Enjoy the ride as you watch the nature sweep past you.

Yamuna Expressway

The road to Agra via Yamuna Expressway is brilliant. There are fields on both sides of the road and the weather was superb. The roads are more or less empty and the car can easily cruise at a speed of 150 kmph. Although there is no need to take a stop, there are food plazas on the way to take a break or refreshments. It is perfect highway to drive on for those who love driving and also the scenery around is absolutely mesmerising.
