It is one of the highest motorable road in the world. We went in September and the roads are good upto some 6 kms before khardungla. While nearing the pass , the roads are in worst condition for nearly some 6 kms before the pass and also few more kms after the pass while going towards Nubra. September would be the good time for visiting Khardungla , as the roads are in good condition. But you will not able to witness snow at that time. There is a Cafe and a medical camp at Khardungla. Also SBI has opened an ATM in Khardungla recently claiming it to be the highest ATM in the world. Overall a nice experience.

Its better known as the 'highest motorable road in the world'. This place is laden with snow but a risky place to be. It is recommended to take deep breaths here as there is very less oxygen supply. You must take Dimox tablets to adapt to the weather conditions. Do not plan to spend more than 1-2 hours here. Very gross toilets. Dont even think about it.

Tough but the best, We went in the month of June around June 15 and it was still snowing, the entire road was covered with snow, Bike riding was quite a difficult task and it took us around 2-3 hours to cover 4-5 kms, Better to go in groups as you will need some one’s help as the bike starts to skid in the snow, Please do carry Camphor with you if you are travelling to any high altitude area and keep sniffing it when Oxygen level drops.

Khardung La pass in Ladakh, India is at a very high altitude of 5,359 meters and is the getaway to Nubra and Shyok valley when you are travelling from Leh. Siachen Glacier lies way up from the Nubra valley ahead. Local summit signs claim Khardung La to be the highest motorable road in the world. Travelers love to get clicked with this signboard. However, It is debatable because there are even higher altitude passes like Mana Pass (5454m, in India-Tibet border), Semo La (5565m, in Tibet) and few others. But undoubtedly, Khardung La is the most popular and frequently travelled pass. We didn't expect such snowfall in Khardung La in Ladakh, India. I was super happy and excited to experience the first proper snowfall in my life in Khardung La, Ladakh. Suddenly it was all white as far as we could see. But Khardung La is a busy tourist route. All the tourist vehicles, bikes, army trucks etc. cross this route to reach Nubra or Shyok valley. So suddenly, there was long traffic congestion. The vehicles fully stopped for a small period of time and started skidding in the snow as soon as they started. All drivers followed instructions and put chains in the tyres. All throughout those freezing weather I found groups of people working outside clearing the snow from the road. Hats off to them and such initiatives. AMS is very common in such high altitude and it is recommended not to remain there too long (20 mins maximum as claimed by the sign boards). During snowfall there are also risks of slippery snow. Some travelers fell and injured themselves. So better to be constantly cautious about the grip of your shoes. There is a temple in the top with many colorful flags. It was also submerged in thick snow. There are also a café and a police check post. We experienced the thickest clumps of snow while driving from Kardungla towards Nubra valley.
