Zero Point is where the civilian road ends and one can't drive any further and hence the name Zero Point. A short distance away from here is the border with China and tourists are not allowed to go any further beyond the Zero Point.
Hot tea, Chana, Maggi, Rum and Brandy is on sale by locals at this place. The air is thin and people take some time to adjust.
