Being chauffeured has an advantage. You can focus on the neighbors of the road instead of focusing on the road. The roads snaking through the mountains of the Himalayas are challenging but they lend themselves to the beautiful views. If you drive to tame your adrenaline rush, you will miss the views because your eyes and mind will focus on the road, the challenge. And you will miss one of the rewards of the ride, interesting landscape.
So those of you who enjoy the landscape can opt for Leh-Manali trip by bus. Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) buses ply this route during the season. Today’s photo story is a collection of sights captured from the moving HPTDC bus that plied this route on July 18, 2014. Browse through the sights and decide whether you want to drive or being chauffeured.
