Way to the world's highest motorable road which is at 18380 feet.

Just 42kms of Leh (Ladakh), you will find world's highest motorable road. Khardung La, a road maintained by Indian Army. One of the toughest terrain in the world. In just 2 hours of ride you will reach at 18380 feet from 13000 feet. Which can be dangerous as well. That is why army does not recommend anyone to stay at Khardung La for more than 30 minutes.

Other than the facts that I stated above. When I took this photograph I didn't realize that this scene also seems to be a part taken from the movie "Lord of the rings". :)

 

See where this picture was taken. [?]
