The route is challenging, so is the weather; it calls for precision driving and though there are definitely limitations with respect to food & stay among other things, that is what excites an adventure traveller, more so a 4x4 enthusiast, to explore these remote lands. This drive strings have together forgotten roads in Kinnaur, Lahaul & Pangi valley."
