Khardungla Pass

This is our third day in Ladakh; it seems we are acclimatized enough to explore the territories on more higher altitude. 
As we started our journey towards Nubra Valley; we realized how difficult and rugged the terrain is. 

Initially the drive was scary but when we reached closer to the snow covered mountains it became absolute fun.

We halted at Khardungla Pass which is considered as world’s highest motor-able road; altitude is 18380 ft. It was summer but totally covered with snow. It has cafeteria also.
This was the first time I have touched and played with real snow. It was like dream come true.  

As the altitude sickness chances are more here; we decided to descend to Nubra Valley.
