One for instance is a stream that flows across the road and is known to carry even the heaviest of vehicles in its surge. But it never seems too dangerous with a good driver. The road passes through some of the most beautiful places in Ladakh – the Changla Pass (The worlds 3rd highest motorable road) and the Thiksey Village (a pretty Tibetan Village) among others.
