RideAsia.net at the highest road in the world

Derek just came back from north India & was at the highest navigable road in the world - the "Khardungla Pass" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khardung_La), which is 5,369 meters (17,582 feet) above sea level. He managed to get some RideAsia.net stickers placed up there.

On this route you also pass the highest fuel station in the world too - 3,740 meters above sea level

Derek also managed to get a RideAsia.net sticker on the 3rd highest navigable road in the world - "Chang La"

This sign apparently means "blow your horn" in the local language (note the sticker)

Not really sure what this one means but it was captured with a sticker in the same area in northern India

In this area there is a very small town called "Mud"

Apparently this yak tried to bite him while placing the sticker

When I worked in Bhutan around 1994 this stuff grew in my garden at my apartment in Thimphu - no one really cared and when it was time to cut the grass, the stuff was cut as well and just thrown away.
