The road trip from Shimla to Manali, India crosses the mighty Himalayas on to the rain shadow area to cross of mighty passes before crossing back the Himalayas to green Manali.

The water crossings (literally there are no roads at some sections and you drive on the river) will make the bravest soul think twice before proceeding.
