Tourists from Germany and Austria riding Royal Enfield motorcycles stop at the Khardung La Pass to the Nubra Valley. The pass is the highest motorable road in the world at 18,380 ft. Tourists, traveling in small groups, are increasingly renting the classic British motorcycle for trips like this one. At the highest point in the journey is a small resting area with a shrine, prayer flags, and a cafeteria.
