Hanle is located in Ladakh region of Himalayas, in the state of Jammu & Kashmir.

Ladakh is high altitude cold desert.

Hanle altitude : 4270 m

latitude : 32° 46' 46'' N

longitude : 78° 57' 51'' E

High altitude site was chosen to reduce the energy threshold i.e. the lowest detectable energy of gamma rays

HAGAR energy threshold ~ 200 GeV
