    Inspired by the post of @rameshtahlan sir in BCMTouring FB Group, I am trying to map out all the motorable passes in Ladakh (not including other parts of J&K and Himachal).

    Many thanks Yogesh.
    looking forward to you complete that project,
    It will be of immense help to everyone,
    and also become a point of greater interaction amongst all of us.

    Looking forward to the final mapping

    Actually i was sitting idle at home, and wanted to occupy myself, so i figured let me map the passes i have done, then i thought let me map some more, and after posting it i realised there are many many more. There was soo much of input that i realised it is required to be done all over again,
    I am happing you are doing it, as it will be a master piece when you finish.

    happy landings
