Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

On: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/34.04172/77.36296

you see only a footpath.

switching to editor-mode, you see a litte feature of the footpath, giving a Name and Elevation of the mountain-pass there.

Since this is an important landmark, it would be preferrable to have name and elevation beeing rendered on the map.

How can this be achieved?

First off, it's great to see someone editing in Ladakh! It's an area close to my heart. Thanks for the work you

I'm interested to notice that the default layer now renders the pass, presumably because you added the natural=saddle tag to it?

It's not said explicitly in response to your question, so I will point out that the default layer is only one of the possible renderings, and more outdoor oriented styles are more likely to render things like mountain passes.

If you mean default map layer (osm-carto), see the discussion here:


You can also add your opinion there.
