India Conquering New heights

It is worth mentioning that constructing the road was not an easy task. During winters, the temperature at such high altitudes dips to -40 degrees C and oxygen levels are 50 % less than at normal places. India’s road has surpassed Bolivia’s record of a road that connects to the Uturuncu volcano at 18,953 feet......

India recently achieved a major feat of constructing a motorable road up and above the world, on the inhospitable heights, difficult topography and dangerous terrain in Ladakh where besides construction, there were other major challenges posed by nature. It was a challenge, man and machine were tested at -40 degrees C. Overcoming all these BRO successfully completed the construction of this motorable road at a strategic location that will benefit the local residents, enhance tourism and help the forces stationed on the Ladakh border with China.

India sets a world record for building the highest motorable road in Ladakh. India’s Border Roads Organisation has completed the construction of the world’s highest motorable road at 19,300 feet. The road passes through Umlingla Pass in Eastern Ladakh. The 52-km long tarmac road has been constructed much above the altitude of Siachen Glacier, which is at 17,700 feet. It is also at a higher altitude than that of the Mount Everest base camps. The road will enhance socio-economic conditions and promote tourism in Ladakh, the Ministry of Defence said. The road also provides local residents with an alternate direct route to Demchok and Chisumle from Leh.

It is worth mentioning that constructing the road was not an easy task. During winters, the temperature at such high altitudes dips to -40 degrees C and oxygen levels are 50 % less than at normal places. India’s road has surpassed Bolivia’s record of a road that connects to the Uturuncu volcano at 18,953 feet. India is proud of the men of Border Road Organisation for their grit and dedication they showed to construct the almost impossible roadway.


It is interesting to note that the road is reported to be even more challenging for the drivers than the Khardung La Pass. The temperature at Umling La Pass can reportedly drop to -40 degrees during peak winter season. Oxygen level at this altitude is reportedly around 50% less than at sea level. Driving on this road will need experience, guts and skill.

The Indian Army's road-building wing received Guinness World Record certificate on 16 November 2021. BRO was recognised for building and black-topping the world's highest motorable road. A big achievement for Border Road Organisation; it has done the impossible.

The road connects important towns in the Chumar sector of Eastern Ladakh. It offers an alternate direct route connecting Chisumle and Dhemchuk from Leh, which will be immensely beneficial for the local population. It will also impact the socio-economic condition in the region by promoting tourism in Ladakh.  

Praising the Border Road Organisation, the Ministry added that the BRO has achieved the feat due to the grit and resilience of its personnel who work in treacherous terrain and extreme weather conditions.

To put things in context, the ministry elaborated that the altitude of this road is even higher than the base camps of Mount Everest, as the North Base Camp in Tibet stands at an altitude of 16,900 feet, while the South Base Camp in Nepal sits at an altitude of 17,598 feet. This gives one an idea how difficult it was for the men and machine firstly to reach the top, work in extreme conditions and construct this motarable road.

Reportedly, the project was underway since 2017, and now after the blacktopping has been done, it marked the completion of the difficult project. India is proud of this achievement of the Border Road Organisation. The road is at a very strategic point as the villages that will be connected by the road are very close to the India-China border in the eastern sector. This road was constructed under Project Himank. The project was planned, designed and executed by the engineers of BRO.

Shree Shree Jagannath Mandir, Dibrugarh

The Jagannath Temple in Dibrugarh in all ways trans-locates the essence of the extravagant Vaishnava temple dedicated to Lord Jagannath in Puri, Odisha. Built as a replica of the temple in Puri, the Temple constructed in Dibrugarh is touted to be the second largest after Puri in terms of its magnitude and size.

The sanctum sanctorum is surrounded by walls approximately 3 meters in height on four sides with two gated openings. The east-facing main gate – Singhadwara – lays open the arms for the visitors greeted by the stone structures of two magnificent lions. The construction of the temple was undertaken by the Sri Sri Jagannath Cultural Trust. The consecration of the temple was enlightened by the presence of the priests from the Tirupati Balaji Temple back in the year 2014. Since then, the temple has witnessed a regular inflow of believers, followers and tourists.
