adventure riders will soon start to move for this pass if opened for general public :

Umling La
September 14, 2017 deelip



With Khardung La turning into a busy highway filled with regular tourists, adventure riders have started looking for more challenging places to ride to. I had to actually stand in a line to take a picture of my boys at the Khardung La pass sign board.


One name that has cropped up is Umling La, a high altitude pass which connects the remote villages of Chisumle and Demchok near the border with China. According to a Border Roads Organization (BRO) document:

Construction of road Chisumle – Demchock in Sourthern Ladakh to Cl-9 specification is under progress. Formation cutting of 5.181 Kms has been executed near Umling La Pass during FY 2016-17. Once completed, road C-D will be the highest motorable road in the world crossing Umling La Pass at 19300 Ft higher than Leh – Khardung La road with crosses Khardung La at 18380 Ft.

in the article of Pallavi Faujdar, it is mentioned that she crossed six passes, namely, Thit Zarbo La, (Boni La), Salsal La, Photi La, Narbo La, sixth pass being Umling La. It seems the naming of the passes are in order of their situation. It would be safe to deduce that Umling la will be somewhere enroute Demchok after descending from Photi La. Or may be on the route from Demchok towards Camp Zarsar.

Location of Chishmule is of paramount importance to confirm the exact location of Umling La.

@adsatinder ji - pata lagao ye Chishmule kahan hai

Salsal La will be little off track from Kyun Tso on the opposite direction of Hanle but can be covered just for the sake of it. She might have covered just for the records as she is pretty much into record making.

Koyul and Demchok are usually restricted and only very few are allowed traveling there on ILP.
Your point on reaching Umling la after descending Photi La makes sense.
Tanveer @tsk1979 can certainly add some pointers here.
