Mountain News: Filipinos conquer Khardung La, world’s highest motorable pass, on mountain bikes
Congratulations Larry Honoridez, Tristan Wayne Valle, Jonbi Escopete who just conquered the world’s highest motorable pass, Khardung La, in Northern India (5400 MASL) on mountain bikes – the first Filipinos to do so! Randy Salazar for shared this with us and added the following information:
“They cycled the Manali-Leh Highway and crossing the Khardiung La Pass (5300meter) ended up in the Nubra Valley (Northern India). The title of the Expedition “Give me 5” summarizes best the intention of the tour. Bike around 1000 km at high altitude (3000-5400m) and have to cross 5 major passes: Rothang Pass (3900m), Bachala Pass (4891m), Lachung Pass (5053m), Tanglang Pass (5300m) and Khardung Pass (5400 m).”
