Did you know that the mountain pass in India is actually higher than Khardung La? Well, although Khardung La in Ladakh is one of the most photographed and passed passes in the world, it does not have the highest pass name. Compared with other mountain passes in India, Khardung La’s elevation of 17,582 feet is actually insufficient.


If this interests you, here are five motorable passes that are actually taller than Khardung La in India.

Umlingla or Umling La, 19300 ft

Recently, Umlinla broke all previous records and set the record for the highest passable road in the world. It connects Chisumle and Demchok, two beautiful towns in Ladakh.
