Soon, the landscape changes from lush, green valleys to cold, barren mountains.

    Surrounded by these high-rising mountains, painted with differing shades of brown and grey, you'll travel through charming hillside villages, each one a bit different from the last. After exploring the town of Kaza and the Lahaul mountains, you'll visit the crescent-shaped lake of Chandratal and end your tour at Chandigarh, with memories of an unforgettable adventure.
