The SasomaSasser La Road or the Sasoma–Saser Pass Road is a road reportedly being built in Ladakh between Nubra and Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO).[1] Being constructed at a height of 17,800 feet (5,400 m) by the Border Roads Organisation under Project Himank, despite the glaciated mountain tops that it has to pass through.[2][3] It is expected to provide an alternative access to DBO, other than the Darbuk–Shyok–DBO Road. It is considered to be of strategic importance.[4]
