View of Leh (Green Patch) taken from somewhere in between the road to Khardungla Pass or K-top as it is known as. Scenic beauty cant be as dramatic as what you see in Ladakh region. You can see the barren hills in various shades of brown topped with ice and a stream of water flowing between it and few green patches. Quite Dramatic.....isnt it ?
Khardungla Pass is officially rated as the highest motorable road in the world at 18380 ft. But contrary to popular belief the highest motorable road is Marsimik La (18634 ft) which is also present in Ladakh region. Indian Army doesn't advertise it as security reasons and let K-Top play the popular role for tourist adventure. Btw Marsimik La is just 700 ft short of Mt Kilimanjaro, that means K-Top is is just 952 ft short of Mt Kilimanjaro (the biggest mountain in Africa) Hats off to BRO (Border Roads Org.) to maintain the roads at such a high altitude.
