Leh to Manali : We booked a cab for Rs. 17000 and headed to Manali. We were only able to leave post 1 pm as Leh was closed first half of the day due to some festival. We bid adieu to Leh and started our onwards journey to Manali. We stopped for lunch at Upashi which is the frequent pitstop for travelers.
