Namshang La

The road to Namshang La, a chillout in high mountains

Namshang La is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.960m (16,273ft) above the sea level, located in Ladakh region of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.

The road to the pass is a smooth black tarmac. It connects Mahe and Tso Moriri Lake. The summit is crowned with hundreds of Buddhistic prayer flags.
The climb is simply terrible, with a notorius lack of oxygen that tests the organisms and a high degree of steepness. The pass connects Indus-Valley in the North with the high plateau of Tsomoriri, a huge lake at an altitude of 4,500m close to the border to Tibet.
