Mountains Passes of Ladakh

Ladakh is land of Rocky Mountains and Mountain Passes. When there is no choice except to climb the peak of the mountains to cross it, a tedious process of building ways across the mountain peak starts which leads to creation of a Mountain pass. The roads built at such a high altitudes have sheer slope, here descending is more difficult than climbing especially when you are riding a two-wheeler. There are sharp turns with continuing upsurge which can test your vehicle’s turning radius and cylinder capacity. Though, men at BRO (Border Road Organisation) are in continuous process of building these roads in the mountains, but still due to severity of climatic conditions such as landslides, avalanche and continuous flow of melting ice, it is easily damaged and sometimes completely washed away.
