Best road in ladakh

Pangong Tso to leh via Changla pass world's second highest pass will take 5-6 hours  so plan as you can reach leh by end of the evening. Road is not very good when you go up to Changla pass and the environment conditions are extreme then khardung la.

After you pass Changla roads are better, mid way you will find Shakti village, top view is amazing. Green fields covered by mountains this village look very prosperous. Road is best you can have in ladakh and one can cover Shakti village to leh 50km in 1 hours.
