Set in the remote Trans Himalayan region of Ladakh, India, La Ultra – The High is among the toughest foot races known to man. Ultra-distances range from 55 km to 555 kms, spanning the massive cold desert, from Nubra Valley to Changthang Plateau, all within 126 hours. Temperatures can fluctuate between Minus 12 degree C to 40 degree C hot, in a matter of 6-7 hours. Five mountain passes on the route, all above 17,000 ft. adds to the unique challenge of low oxygen density, of less than 50 % of what you breath at sea level. Ladakh, it’s people and its culture are unlike anywhere else in the world. It’s one magical place on earth to celebrate the extraordinary human spirit, in the way of La Ultra – The High.
