Trucks crossing - Manali to Leh road (India)

You can see the truck wheel just inches from the drop-off on the edge of the road. Truck drivers need to have nerves of steel in the Himalaya. Mountain roads have no fences, they are narrow (usually just one lane), often slippery, often not paved, very steep and bordered by very deep and steep ravines. There is no help, hospital, garage or mechanics hundreds of miles around.
