the world's most spectacular roads

Imis La

Imis La is an international high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.290m (17,355ft) above the sea level, located between Ladakh (India) and Tibet (China). It is one among the major passes over the main Himalayan Range.

It's one of the highest mountain roads of the country. The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It remains closed during the winter season and has a difficult terrain and steep slopes. Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. Thunderstorm activity can quickly change unpaved roads to four-wheel-drive condition or make them impassable. From the top of the pass, there is a good view of the Karakorams and into Tibet.
