Without looking at the video this should be the Kardung (Sp?) pass in Kashmir. 'Tree' can give you a first hand account and the article he wrote and pictures he took. His article in a motorcycle magazine won him a camera. Talk to him about his populairty of paying for his M/C tour with US cash! :O)

Here's the ride report.......   www.tinyurl.com/y88wmxj

It was a hoot.  The actual height of Khardung La pass by GPS is 17,582 ft, about the same as Tanglang La pass ( 17,480 ) we rode over on the way.

Here is Peter's website, http://www.classic-bike-india.com/

he's on facebook also. Good photos on Bhutan and other trips.

Yes, those last two ride reports were hosted on ridethrock.com.
RTR was hacked badly in Sept and Coolhand the mod has just rebuilt the website.
I'm hoping they will be recovered by him later.
Some hackasole sitting in his mother's basement had nothing better to do I guess....
