DAY 8

Chandartal lake to Manali (50 kms /2 hrs)

After Breakfast, some call it adventurous and some call the drive of their life- this is the last day of your trip before you head back to civilization in Manali. The road between Chandra Tal and Manali is the toughest, roughest, most scenic and we guarantee you will skip a few breathes this day. The non-existence of roads, a few water falls, dry and dusty make this terrain difficult. On the other hand, snow capped mountains, Chandra river flowing to meet Bhaga and the vast landscape make your drive memorable. Spend some time at Rohtang if time permits.
