“FAILING IS NOT A CRIME; LACK OF EFFORT IS.”

La Ultra - The High

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° C to 40° 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. Read more
