"Reaching UmlingLa Pass and Breakfast at UmlingLa HUT"

Riding further ahead, I came across this road.

It looked as if no one has passed in this road before me.
It seems that there must be snow fall before we reached at this patch.


It felt like cutting a snow cake with motorcycle tyre.

Umling La Top was very near now.

At 8.49 AM, I reached Umling La Pass top.


" Higher the Hill , Stronger the Will."

See the tyre marks. I was first to reach here today.

On this day, ie
27th May,2022 , no other vehicle had reached here before me.

I could see some temporary rooms here at top. First one was
World's Highest Cafe at 19,024 feet. But it was not open yet.

Time for some posing for my Bajaj Pulsar 200 NS motorcycle.

Our fourwheel also arrived here now. I requested the driver to click some pictures of mine.
Happy me to reach here and fulfill yet another dream.

Here is a short video shot there using my mobile.

I requested for more pictures for memory.

So poses using Gopro. My motorcycle never lets me down. I felt proud to own this bike.



And some gopro selfie. I was lucky to get such amount of snow on road and at Umling la pass top also.

Proud moment for me.

Homestay owner called me for breakfast inside a glass chamber/ room. It was written as UmlingLa HUT.

Inside that hut the wall on three side were mentions of something.

First wall shows the change in board and road of Umlingla in 2017, Before 2017, 2018, 2021 etc with pictures of sign board during that period.

Second wall show the Certificate of Guinness World Record

Third wall mentioned this road as Chisumle Demchok road, passing via Umling La Pass.

I had kahwa in that room and some bread sandwiches. Homestay ower was very caring for us.
