Kangju Kangri is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 5.027m (16,492ft) above the sea level, located in northern India’s Jammu and Kashmir state.
The road to the summit, located in the Pangong mountain range, is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). 4wd vehicle required. The word 'Kangju' means a 'revered place', and Ri, 'mountain'. The high elevation with its risk of altitude sickness, weather concerns, steep road grade and overall inaccessibility make the travel dangerous and difficult.
