Beat Heim lists this as one of his favourite passes, and as he knows a thing or two about cycling high roads, who are we to argue? The scenery on this road in Zanskar is fantastic and there is very little traffic. The surface isn’t always great, but if that keeps the trucks away, who cares? This pass is definitely one of the best.
