themselves over petty issues. Gasho “Thatha Khan”, an exiled Buddhist prince in the 9th century AD, is

a mountain pass in the Ladakh region of the Indianstate of Jammu and Kashmir. The local pronunciation
Khardong La & Khardzong La as with most names in Ladakh, the romanised spelling varies.
The pass on the Ladakh Range lies north of Leh and is the gateway to the Shyok and Nubra valleys.
The Siachen Glacier lies part way up the latter valley. Built in 1976, it was opened to public motor
vehicles in 1988 and has since seen many automobile, motorbike and mountain biking expeditions.
Maintained by the Border Roads Organisation, the pass is strategically important to India as it is used to
carry supplies to the Siachen Glacier.
The elevation of Khardung La is 5,359 m (17,582 ft). [1]  Local summit signs and dozens of stores selling
shirts in Leh incorrectly claim that its elevation is in the vicinity of 5,602 m (18,379 ft) and that it is the
world’s highest motorable pass.

Khardong La is historically important as it lies on the major caravan route from Leh to Kashgar in Central
Asia. About 10,000 horses and camels used to take the route annually, and a small population of Bactrian
camels can still be seen at Hunder, in the area north of the pass. During World War II there was an
attempt to transfer war material to Chinathrough this route. Evening return back to hotel for dinner & overnight stay
