This is a great little climb, up from the Indus at Mahe, past Nungompa and the spectacular Yaya (Toure) Tso. We wouldn’t really count it as a pass as it’s really just a little bump on the way to the much higher Kaksang La, but have included it here as there’s a pass sign at the top. Like with the Kaksang La, we’re not sure if foreigners are officially allowed here, but if there’s no-one to stop you…
Between Mahe and the Horla workers’ camp we saw exactly zero vehicles – always a bonus.
