It’s the second highest motorable pass in the world. It was pouring snow outside so we wore all our layers before stepping out for clicking few pictures. We were advised not to stay here for more then 10- 15 minutes to avoid discomfort due to...More

Its arguably the second highest motor-able pass of the world. Though lower than K Pass, it is more dangerous because of loose stones. One has to be careful while negotiating them. Views on top depends on how you like them, journey is serene though.
