It is in Ladakh in northern India and is a historical pass between Leh and the Nubra valley.
It was a great test for the Braemar Ventile Smock as we started at below zero at over 5350 meters and ended at Leh village 39km and 1000m below at 20 degrees C.
The pass was extremely rough for the first 15km and we were held up by a bulldozer clearing rockfall which was knocking rocks on the track below. On the way down we had to avoid Indian army trucks on their way to the Siachen Glacier.
The paved road on the lower half of the pass was made for speed and some of the others took off into the distance while the rest of us took it easy.
