Feeling when you reach the top is hard to describe in words. It is 32kms from Leh. I travelled on bike (Bullet 500cc). It took around 2 hrs to reach. Last 15kms were difficult due to snow, cold and bad road.

The journey to the peak is beautiful. Snow and clouds. Must visit if you are in Leh. Going by bike is little difficult because the road is not very good.

Best place to go by bike. Snow laden even in summer. Beautiful view of mountain and green belt of passes through out the way. Natural stream adds beauty to mountain. Worth visiting.

The whole journey is an experience which stays with you even after the whole expedition. You travelling through roads covered from both the sides by ICE!! It is a memorable experience.

World's highest motorable road and we drove on it. This gives immense pleasure and a winning spirit so I would say everyone should drive that high atleast once in lifetime. Warning: If you stay there for more than 30 minutes, you may feel discomfort due...More
