Changla Pass, Ladakh

(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
At an altitude of 5,360 m (17,590 ft) above sea level, explore Changla Pass--the third-highest drivable road in the world. Maintained and guarded by the Indian Army, the pass remains open throughout the year, except during the clearing of snow. Examine the remarkable panoramic view of the snow-capped Himalayas, and visit nearby landmarks including two lakes, a valley, and a monastery. Take necessary precautions while visiting this area, since it can get extremely cold and hard to adapt to low oxygen levels. Wear very warm clothing with covered ears and appropriate footwear at all times. With our international travel planner, Hemis attractions like Changla Pass can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
