So if you’re planning a trip like this, here are the 6 extreme locations in India that are known for their landscapes and their #RoughAndRugged routes? Ready? Set? Go.
Khardung La to Leh
At 17,000 feet above sea level, the hilly route to Khardung La from Leh is filled with the most magnificent views and is every traveller’s dream. A moderately difficult drive, the route is uneven and changes every few kilometres. Considering the distance is not much, the ascent, the cold, the lack of oxygen and the uneven patches of road make it a little longer than expected. But the thrill of off-roading that this route provides along with the majestic hills and the promise of travelling on the world’s ‘highest motorable road’ is totally worth it. While people take to the route on motorcycles and even bicycles, a sturdy 4 wheel drive fills the #RoughAndRugged ascent with the most scenic views of the Karakoram range and pristine glaciers.
