World's highest motorable pass (17,350-feet): Himalayas, India
Hitch-hiking over the world's highest motorable pass (17,350-feet) involves encountering many repairs such as the one seen here.
Here a section of the pass is being quickly (relatively speaking) bulldozed back into action.
It had been washed away by runoff from snow melt. Yep, those are the legendary Himalayas in the background
Covered with snow in July. The air was so thin that simple walking felt like a sprint.
