Khardoung La is the world’s highest motorable highway across the karakorum range in the Himalayas. I had a chance to hire a taxi to take me to the highest point after my Stok Kangri trek. This happened on the last day before i flew out of Leh back home.
View of Stok Kangri from the road to Khardung La.
The roads are much better now than a couple of years ago.
The first check post “south pulu”.
The roads become more treacherous towards the top of the pass.
A notice informing you that you have reached the highest point in the Pass.
The World’s Highest Cafeteria. Had some noodles and Masala Chai (Tea) here.
A buddhist temple at the top.
Looking at the other side from the highest point. This goes onwards towards Siachin and Nubra Valley.
I had forgotten to take my sweater and was freezing cold at the top.
