Bumiktse La

The Ultimate Guide to Traveling the Bumiktse La

Bumiktse La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.420m (14,501ft) 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 Bumice La, is totally unpaved with plenty of switchbacks. 4x4 vehicle required due the conditions of the road and its steepness. The pass road runs north-south from Photoksar to Yulchung. Nestled in the Zanskar mountain range, into the broad and lush valley of Photang, 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.
