As hotel guys couldn't prepare breakfast as per our scheduled plan so not wasting much time we decided to had the morning tea and then head towards tandi, not finding breakfast in tandi either we then had our tummy filling breakfast at a town named keylong, next pitstop was Jispa, it was too cold to step out of the car so we didn't roam much out in the jispa. As we reached darcha, we saw this long iconic darcha bridge.
One gets on a Y-intersection after crossing this bridge where one roads leada to the majestic zanskar valley and the another one to Ladakh. As planned we turn left towards zanskar to climb Shinkhu La.
The road to Shinkhu La was newly opened, I've to say that I've never seen such road smooth as this ever, hats off to BRO. The zanskari mountains were truly breathtaking both metaphorically and literally.. Hehe.. I was feeling being hit by AMS, anyways.
We were just about to reach zanskar sumdo a town before shinkhu La when we encountered black ice and snow, not taking any further risks with my family on such altitude in skidding car I turned the steering back onto to thw way to suraj tal. Back on the leh manali road the things were quite grippy and safe but not for long time. As we were reaching a town named zing zing bar, is again felt the car giving the responses I needed as it was struggling again to stick on the road due to black ice and snow.
