Ganahatti.This is the most scary place of all the trips.Because our car breaks got failed here.Its an advice to the outsiders.Of you are driving in himalayas,use less breaks.

Waiting for the tyres to cool down.Use less breaks in himalayas.The more you gonna use breaks,specially at 3rd or 4th gear.Car tyres get heated up.The moment you going to start the car.Breaks will not work.Specially for outsiders,use less breaks.

Day 3

Early morning is always blissfull.Beautiful sky touching the mountains.It was 6:30am,i woke up early and went outside to enjoy the views of himalayas.The morning was so beautiful that made me energetic to move towards my next destination.Next is "Rohtang Pass".Yes,it is Rohtang pass.Rohtang means "Pile of dead bodies".Rohtang is one of the highest motorable pass which connects the spiti valley and Ladakh.

Morning view in Manali.Time is 6:30Am. I love that this morning's sunrise does not define itself by last night's sunset.

Lookin at the himalayas,thinking of the memories that we sometimes forget in our daily life.The morning sun rays which are touching the himalayas gives the confidence to stay firm in your life.

Sometimes i feel like why these himalayas are so beautiful and amazing.Sometimes i think why these himalayas dont let me to touch its peaks or should i let the silence of himalayas speak.Then i retained my memory,that i am the one who is born here.
