Nubra Valley is about 150km from Leh but the curvy and rough roads takes a bit long time as expected to reach. We started early in the morning, the journey has got some beautiful landscape. We crossed many hills, riding up and down, from the Naked mountains the view is slowly transforming to snow laden hills.
The increase in chillness and snow being visible was clear indication that we were nearing the Khardungla Pass, the Highest Motorable Road(18,380 ft). The pass is fluttered all over with the Prayer flags with people posing for a pic under the sign board to keep everlasting memory of clinching the top, the sun rays were illuminating the snow turning it into white pearl. We parked only for 20min (recommended 15min) owing to less oxygen supply at the top, there are army hospitals for any emergency situations if any.
