Recent Chele La Pass Review-
Sarthak, Chennai: This is the highest motorable peak of Bhutan, stands at 3998mtrs above sea level. Road to this view point is narrow and little strenous but on the way you can see the yaks grazing, the clouds actually touching you.. and there will be so many different varieties of himalayan flowers along the road.. at Chelela pass, the temperature’s always around 0°C. You can see the snow clad himalayan mountains on a clear sky. Having the super hot maggi noodles is a must have there.. loved the view of Himalayas and the landscape from here.
