I am in Manali.
After 5 days of cycling I am at the start: of the Manali-Leh road. There has been a lot of climbing, but most of all it was hot. Not so much down in the plane, but up here, at the altitude around 1500m the temperature still reaches 35 c. I hope it's over now.
How was it today? Well, to Aut it was mostly down and a quick ride. There's a 3 km tunnel before that town. Then it again goes up and down and up with increasing traffic as I approached Manali. Tourists, I guess.
Day 6: 130 km, 7h 52 min. Total 667 km.
