Chyupa La

Ultimate 4wd destination: Chyupa La

Chyupa La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.424m (14,514ft) above the sea level, located in the Leh district, in the Indian union territory of Ladakh.

The winding road to the summit, also known as Khyupa La, is totally unpaved with plenty of switchbacks. 4x4 vehicle required due the conditions of the road and its steepness. The road to the summit starts from Yulchung, a small village in the mountains. Nestled in the Zanskar mountain range, the climb is steep and very rocky with deep potholes. Accessibility is largely limited to the summer season. The drive offers amazing views of hanging icefalls.
