Ladakh on wheels - (3 Friends, 2 bikes, 12 days 3400 kms)
Every one knows about Leh - Ladakh AKA Riders makka....
TanglangLa is very unlike any other pass. It does not give you an option to gain altitude in switchbacks but teases you with long-long-long sections of constant gradient climbs that go on forever. One can see the destination at all times and it may fool you with a sense that it is just a touch away, but the reality being- it is a long hard laborious climb from the base. Starting from Debring, the climb is immense and TanglangLa is the 2nd highest motorable road in the world. Once you reach the top at 17,582ft , the downhill from that point beyond has to be the best on the trip till Leh. The scenic beauty is unmistakable and out of this world. From there on, you cross the small villages named Rumtse and Gya, to finally reach Lato. Lato being at an altitude of 13,400ft the total distance covered is about 56kms from Debring.
