Planning on riding/driving from Manali to Leh? You can explore the route in an interactive map right here and also download a .gpx file of the route for your GPS.
On this 470 km trip you will climb 14,000 meters and cross five major high-altitude passes (called La). If you are cycling, the climb to the pass will seem endless. I have marked all of the passes in the file just so that you know how much more you need to suffer!
The five major passes on route from Manali to Leh:
- Rohtang La: 3,973 m pass
- Baralacha La: 4,911 m pass
- Naki La: 4,694 m pass
- Lachulung La: 5,061 m pass
- Taglang La: 5,328 m pass
