Day 5

Pangong to Leh City via Chang La

The Chang La is situated at a height of 17590 ft.  It is claimed to be the second highest motor-able road in the world . Chang La is approached from Leh via Kharu and Sakti village by an asphalt road. The climb is very steep and requires a careful drive. The stretch of 10-15 km road on either side from Chang la is loose dirt and slush. During the summer months specifically the tourist season, small streams appear across the road, making the climb a challenge for the bikers. The descent from Chang La towards Tangtse or Darbuk is again very steep. As per the medics, it is advisable to not stay at the top for more than 20-25 mins as it could be detrimental to health owing to its high altitude

Snow capped mountains on either side, ascent to Chang La
