Over the Rohtang Pass towards Spiti Valley

Leaving Manali with the 2nd bus at 6 am we must go over the Rothang Pass. Few places on earth present you with such a dramatic change of landscape. On one side the lush green of the Kullu Valley and on the other the awesome vista of the Himalayas.

This is the backbone of the valleys. Rugged trucks and their drivers bring everything what man needs up here. On the way back they transport the goods that are produced in the valleys behind the mountains.

And that was that – nothing moves anymore if it has more than 2 wheels.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
