This is Rohtang pass, Manali, Himachal pradesh. The beautiful hills and the dramatic clouds here will give you an excellent opportunity for landscape photography. I took this shot in my last tour in 2008. After a hectic journey we reached there and found the bright and fresh weather. The zig zag roads give the valley a unique touch.
