Lahaul is the hidden neighbour of Ladakh. It is cut off for a good six months due to thick sheets of snow. As the summer months arrive, the snow melts giving way to visit this beauty. Relatively untouched, Lahaul hosts a beautiful shade of blue sky and equally picturesque meadows. Reaching Lahaul might require you to pass through Manali which receives adequate rainfall in July. Thus, a lot of travellers prefer travelling in August.
