Taglang La on the Leh-Manali Highway
|Elevation||5,328 m (17,480 ft)|
|Traversed by||Leh-Manali Highway|
Taglang La, elevation 5,328 metres (17,480 ft), is a high mountain pass in Ladakh region of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. As of August 2014, the Leh-Manali highway leading south from Upshi to Taglang La is paved, with the exception of a very short (approx 500m) unpaved section just north of the pass. The pass itself is paved.
The elevation in metres, which is taken from a local sign, is in agreement with SRTM data. The sign incorrectly claims 17,582 feet, which would be 5,359 metres, and incorrectly claims to be the world’s second highest motorable pass.
