Road to World's highest motorable pass - Khardungla Pass Leh (18,380 feet)

Its normal to cross snow capped peaks and roads cutting layer of ten feet thick snow if you wish to reach the world's highest motorable pass. An uphill drive from Leh town of around 60 KM lies World's highest motorable pass. Its heaven for bikers and I enjoyed the charm of being in heaven. Water crossing, landsliding prone area, road without roads and unfriendly winds makes this drive different from kid's play.

Low Oxygen levels not only affect your breathing but also bike pick up power to large extent and drizzling makes it really unbearable pain and challenge the mental strength every time gear is changed to 1.
