Taglang La – Southbound

(Graphics Credits: Veloviewer and Strava)

Rating: Looks very very hard…we did the descent and this climb is on a bucket list.

Road Condition: Mostly gravel back then.

Traffic: Very Sparse.

USP: We had 22 km of no pedalling descent!!! What more can you ask for. You have to hit the apex on every hairpin to maintain speed (this is assuming you’ve put on new brake pads and double checked them)…or like me, sh*t bricks all the way down. Unlike on a climb, there’s no time to enjoy the views…you take your eyes off the road and you’re off it…one of the reasons I like going up more than going down 🙂
