40Kms, 6500ft ascent, altitude of 18380ft, 11 hours (including 3 hours of break) of gruelling uphill and we’ve done it : ) Cycled to Khardung-la – the highest motorable pass in the world 🙂
A simply amazing feeling… really can’t be described in words. Its one of those you have to be there to feel it kind of things : )
At the K-top, we’re so exhausted that none of have the energy to even celebrate. We sit around and order some hot tea and just soak in (very silently) the atmosphere, the feeling, the sense of exhilaration. After a little while, it does hit us… and we’re back in form, high fives all around, general happiness and cheer and some pictures at the K-top.
