Just outside Leh in the far north of India is the Kardhung La, the worlds highest motorable road pass. 5,602 metres is the recorded height of the pass and the views are spectacular in every direction looking out across the surrounding snow-capped Himalayas. The road drops 2,000 metres in altitude over a distance of 36 kilometres back into Leh from the top of the pass. We loaded into a 4×4 early in the morning and drove to the top and then it was a fast ride on mountain bikes all the way back to Leh, taking in the amazing views along the way!
