Spirit of Tibet
One of the most exciting drives in the world is over 17,000-foot Tanglang La and 16,000-foot high Baralacha La Pass from Ladakh down into Jispa and then on to Manali and eventually Dharamsala. This marvelous trip takes you over these passes, but not until you have enjoyed festivals, stayed with a Ladakhi family, met with the local shaman and visited such legendary monasteries as Hemis, Lamayuru, and Alchi.
But once you leave Ladakh, the excitement is not over. You can test the local beer over lunch with a family in Manali, visit Namgyal Monastery and learn about Tibetan medicine in Dharamsala, home of H.H. The Dalai Lama, and end your journey visiting the iconic Sikh Golden Temple in Amritsar.
