N A N D A D E V I E X P I D I T I O N A film by Agrodut Chatterjee How the story begins? It was 2005 when I went for one of the world’s classic road trips from Jammu to Nubra valley via Shrinagar, Dras, Kargil, Leh and khardungla . Lush green valleys, barren ice-fields and a surreal high-altitude desert are all became the part of my journey over the highest motor able road in the world at an altitude of 18,485 ft. Even with altitude sickness, roads that are no more than rubble and the inevitable sore that comes with being thrown out of your seat every five minutes making it an incredible journey.
