In the morning as the sun was spreading its rays from behind the mountains and the city was about to come to life, the moment seemed like the whole world to us. It was an amazing Way to Go..or What a way to go....
Limits of vision were the mountains only and nothing else. As it is said Human will to triumph is above all, we stopped at a place full of eateries.
We wondered how much efforts must have been done by these shopkeepers to open such shops at this height. This place is "Marhi" and like everywhere else view from this point was staggering brilliant, barren mountains were incomparable.
Everyone was hiring horses to go up the distance which was hardly 2 Km. As our feet are always the best option, we decided to chart the course by walking on for the summit. All my trekking experience was coming handy, like take small steps, have little water.
Snow at the top was calling us and Step by step we kept on moving and it did not took long to reach the summit, with snow everywhere around. Rightly said "View from the top is what makes the journey of 1000 steps so exhilarating". A sense of Deja Vu ---
The best plans slould be kept early during the trip as one snowfall or landslide, the Leh Manli highway, which is the road to Rohtang gets closed. So when in Manali first thing to do is to head straight to Rohtang..
Someone rightly told that you have to be lucky also to experience Rohtang...
