Khardung La in Ladakh

Khardung La Pass, pronounced as ‘Khardzong La’ is also known as the ‘Pass of Lower Castle’. It is a mountain pass in Ladakh in the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir. This road is 39.7 km from Leh, located at an altitude of 5,359 meters. The work for construction was started in 1976 and opened for public in 1988. Khardung La Pass Ladakh is located on a caravan road from Leh to Kashgar in the mountain area. It acts as an entry point to the Nubra and Shyok valleys in Ladakh which is an important pass into the Siachen glacier. It is the most popular and frequently used pass in India. In olden days, mainly traders travelled through this road who used many horses and camels which navigated in a single line one after another to carry goods to Kashgar. This pass plays a significant role in transport for both India and China. Today, this road is vital for Indian Army since it is used to carry important materials to Siachen Glacier. This is a two way road and the nearest town to this pass is Leh which is routed to Manali and Srinagar.

This pass is said to be the highest motorable pass though there are many controversial debates going on for this claim. Mountain biking is very famous in this pass. The path of the road goes through the mountain peak and lets us admire the stunning beauty of the Leh town and mighty mountains around the valley. Some adventure seekers ride to the top of the Khardung La and make the return trip in bicycle to feel the excitement and admire the attractive views.

The road to Khardung La Pass is usually jammed because of the small landslides and road repairs. Due to this issue, it takes 3 hours to travel on this windy road. The complete maintenance of this road to the pass is done by the Indian Army. Indian Army post, a temple and an army canteen are available on the way to Khardung La Pass. North Pullu is a small place selling tea and snacks near Khardungla Pass. Thick clumps of snow are usually found between the road of Khardungla Pass and North Pullu. Travel to this exciting place and enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings.

    • Trip to Ladakh

      It was a wonderful experience with Lazy Yatra. Yugal is very much co-operative, cool , calm person. he responded all the times as and when needed. the entire tour planned by him was comfortable, relaxed. Even my mother aged 69 had no problem with tour even night stay at Pangong. food quality was awesome. few issues were there but sorted out, (actually happens when you travel a place like Ladakh in month of October) It was my first trip with Travel triangle. ready for more. Last, the Cab Driver Tashi was also very co operative during the entire tour.

      We are very impressed with the services provided by "Leh Ladakh Journey". The entire trip was perfectly planned. Amazing experience. From the beginning, the travel agents were very engaged. Thanks to Bhawana for arranging hassle-free trip. We are very impressed with the details provided by her with each request and very prompt. She was always available on call or Whatsapp for any queries we had. Thanks for coordinating with all the documents & payments. Also thanks to Sushant for guiding us with all the safety tips and health tips. Sushant made a visit to hotel to ensure about our safety and how the trip went and he made sure that we get best hospitality. He resolved all our queries. Everything was on time and well organized. All the accommodations were good except for the accommodation on last day at "Nezer Holiday Inn" in Leh as the staff in hotel were not co-operative, otherwise the hotel was good. Also the meal's provided in all the accommodations were excellent. Specially food prepared by Riyaaz. Our driver, "Thinlis" was excellent, knowledgeable, very safety-conscious, pleasant and he always reaches before time. We will recommend "Leh Ladakh Journey" to our friends and family. We will also be taking another in the future.. Thank you for a wonderful journey!! Keep up the good work!!

    • Trip to Ladakh

      With my package I was expecting much comforting and pleasant experience but the food and accommodations were not at all up to the mark. There were so many good hotels and cottages available in each place but not sure why the arrangements were not been made in those hotels. Really disappointed with the whole arrangement apart from Transportation.

      The package offered was little costly. We had great time at kangsing hotel in ladakh. Great hospitality provided by them. Camps at pangong and nubra were ok. Food was not good in pangong camp. We were not aware that lights are their at nubra and pangong camp from evening 6 pm to 11 pm only. This our travel agent should have informed us before only. We were only told connectivity will not be their and no tv. At pangong every thing was self service we found it difficult as it was snow fall their. To take water, or even ask something we have to get out of the room in snow late night and ask them to provide food, water etc. There were no phones service also at both camp. Only stay and that too night you have to spend without light. Our last two days hotel was at leh the second hotel provided was on as there was no phone service on rooms that too hotel was in leh. We use to call him on mobile for any services. Rest their hospitality was good. Food was good. Best time was to see khardungla pass , changla pass and pangong lake blue water. The driver was very good and knowledgeable. Cooperative. Our trip gone well during travelling. Rest all are aware lehnladakh is awesome place to visit. We enjoyed our journey alot.
