    The most enthralling experience to spend some quality time at zero point, Baralacha La

    We availed a package tour of Lahul & Spiti Valley for seven days with a Shimla based travel company "VIVID HIMALAYAS" that made the package for us. Day third (17. 06. 2018) we started our journey from Keylong to Baralacha La Pass by car. This high altitude mountain pass is around 73 kilometers away from keylong on Leh Manali Highway. It is one of the high altitude motorable mountain pass in Zanskar range connecting Lahul district in HP to Ladakh in J&K is situated at a altitude of 4850 meters above sea level. After visiting eye catching Suraj Tal, we traveled towards Baralacha La Pass which is just 3 km at a distance from Suraj Tail. The weather here is unpredictable so within a minute black clouds came over there and started snowing. We got down from the car to catch some photographs at zero point, but strong wind prevented us from staying outside for a few minutes. Baralacha is a beautiful plateau also where three mountains ranges meet I. E. Pir Panel range, Zanskar range and The Great Himalayas. We spend some quality time at zero point and enjoyed amazingly the beautiful pass.

    Crescent shaped lake

    Located 5000 metres above sea level is this beautiful of lake named Chandal. It is naturally in shape of Moon and hence the name. This can be availed by a trekkers route too. The Baralacha Chandal trek is very famous and exciting one. The spellbound beauty of the mighty Himalayas along the lively terrain is sure to make you fall in love with nature.

    Silent and absolutley mind blowing

    Crossed this pass on our way to Leh from Manali during sunset. The Tibetan flags, view from this place, the silence, winds, everything is absolutely mindblowing. You can stop there for few minutes, good for photography.
