RIDE FOR PEACE : World Highest Motorable Road

HIGHEST MOTORABLE ROAD
The Chang La - Himalayan Range
(5,360 m or 17,590 ft)
is a high mountain pass in Ladakh, India




The Chang La
is the third highest motorable road in the world.
The Chang La is on the route to Pangong Lake from Leh.
The name literally means
"Pass towards the South" or
"Pass in the South"
(Chang = south, La = Pass)
The Changla Pass is the main gateway
for the Changthang Plateau
situated in the Himalayas.
The nomadic tribes of the region
are collectively known
as the Changpa or Chang-pa.
